    2021: Week 2.

    Heeeey! I’m a bit late posting about the 2nd week of 2021, because we left for our camping trip before I could find the time to blog! I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, but I’m glad that I want to write again. I’m enjoying the ritual of journalling daily. Just an A5 page each night before bed. Something to jog my memory for the blog at the end of each week, but also a quick way to decompress from the day. Anyway, here’s week 2! 8 January – Friday I was awake early after Mr Unprepared left for work, so I blogged about week 1! It felt…

    2021: Week 1.

    I am an incurable optimist, it seems. Every year I set out to document my life in weekly updates, but I stop every time it doesn’t feel good anymore (usually due to what is going on for me at the time). Maybe I’m a slow learner, but I’ve decided to try again. In some ways, I regret not having more of a record of 2020 (the dumpster fire that it was) and while I feel a bit like 2021 will be more like 2020: Part 2, it is a time that will go down in history. This is also honestly an opportunity for me to keep up with my writing.…

    2020: Week 3

    15 January – Wednesday I woke at 1:30am and could not get back to sleep. It got really unbearable and by 4am I left the room to lie on the couch. I felt bad because it turned out that I had already disturbed Mr Unprepared. He came out to check on me. I admitted that my recent struggles with sleep had really started to take a toll on me mentally and physically. He was really sweet and laid down with me, all squished on the couch, and let me talk. Everything just tumbled out of me. All of my frustrations, my lack of creative outlets (when I can’t express myself…

    2020: Week 2

    This week’s biggest themes were my lack of sleep, the Little Miss really showing me how Terrible her Almost Twos were and a lot of swimming! 8 January – Wednesday This morning I thought I would earn some good mum points. I took the kids to the library. I envisioned myself sitting with the Little Miss, reading her a lovely little book from the baby section while the Little Mister borrowed some books to take home and devour (seems he takes after his mum when it comes to reading – before I became a mum that is haha). I figured he’d be stoked and feel independent and I’d be doing…

    2020: Week 1.

    Hey there! It’s 2020 and I love it. I love how it looks and how fun it is to say. I’m excited that it’s a new year full of new goals and possibilities (and no doubt surprises and curve balls that we could never fully anticipate). Last year I set the intention of documenting the year with a weekly update. It was supposed to be a great record for me to look back on and a way of sharing my life in a chatty, diary like kind of way. A wrap up of what I’d been up to. The good, the bad, the ugly. The thing is, a chunk of…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #17

    I’ve been documenting my year one week at a time on the blog! It’s just a way to remember and reflect. Also a great way for my lovely readers/followers to catch up on what’s been happening in my life. Here is the 17th week of 2019 (yes I am very far behind)! 23 April – Tuesday I was stoked that the Little Miss slept from 10:30pm to 4:30am straight last night. Yep – that’s the best she’s done in a while! She seemed in better spirits today as a result, which was so good to see! My gut was not perfect yet so I skipped the gym, but it was…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #16

    My 16th week of 2019 was a pretty good one! I feel like that’s been a rarity this year, unfortunately. Not that our problems have been massively devastating (something I am very grateful for), but it’s just been a weirdly stressful year, where all the little not-so-totally-awesome things have kind of added up and accumulated more than I’d like! It wasn’t perfect (nothing is and that’s OK) but it was really great to have some little wins and of course it was Easter time and my birthday week! This has been a nice one to relive, as I’ve read back through my paper journal and started typing… If you’re not…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #15

    This week (9-15 April) has been a bit difficult to write about for the blog. Some big, emotional things were going on at the time and there were lots of stories that were/are not mine to tell. While I wrote a lot in my personal journal at this time, I have obviously had to leave some things out, publicly. Just know that during this week, I really learned a lot about myself and life in general too. It was hard but it was a time that brought people together. 9 April – Tuesday I was supposed to go to the gym today, but the Little Miss had a really rough…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #14

    The 14th week of 2019 was full of anxiety, but also ended up being surprisingly productive. Also, there was that time on the Monday when the Little Mister randomly spewed and I actually saw it as a blessing in disguise… Anyway, we’ll get to that bit! 2 April – Tuesday I was starting to get anxious about starting at the gym this coming Thursday. I know it sounds silly but I feel like I have an insurmountable list of tasks to tick off before I can even get started. I messaged my friends S and A to ask questions (silly ones to regular gym goers I am sure) and they…

    2019 Weekly Wrap Up #12

    I have to say, week 12 of 2019 wasn’t much better than weeks 10 and 11. I was starting to think that maybe this year isn’t turning out as amazing as I’d hoped. Seeing every single day broken down in writing can be confronting! Which makes me wonder why we are always so obsessed with categorising a whole calendar year as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. It’s kind of meaningless if you think about it! I’ve decided to live my life as best I can and maybe the highlights and lowlights will just reveal themselves to me by the 31st of December, but for now life is just life and we all…
