AWOL and Coffee

I’ve tried multiple times today to write a post worth anything but nothing is coming to mind. I don’t know why; however I am having a rambling sort of day. So, I thought since I’ve been a little AWOL lately, we could catch up over a cuppa!

I saw this post on LiveLaughLove and know it’s quite popular around the blogosphere.

If we were having coffee… I’d probably tell you how I slept like poop last night (then I’d giggle how now I’m so used to saying poop instead of s*** because of kids). I was having terrible nightmares. I haven’t had dreams like this since I was pregnant (and for the record, I am NOT pregnant!). I dreamt Hubby was in a car accident and when he came through he no longer remembered me and the kids and tried to choke me! I dreamt C had killed a woman and then ate her (oh, I’m serious peeps) and it was SO graphic. I had multiple falling dreams and eventually couldn’t get myself to close my eyes any longer!

If we were having coffee… I’d probably tell you how sad I am to see Lil Mister go to Ouma this weekend! I know these times with his Ouma and Oupa are important and great for him, but the house seems so quiet without him around. I miss his warmth at night and his HUGE hugs in the morning. I’d also tell you how (once again) I plan to use these nights to attempt to wean LJ. I’d probably admit I doubt I’ll get it right because at 1am….I give in to just about anything that means I get sleep! Did you wean? How did you get it right?

If we were having coffee… I’d admit how terrible my house looks right now. There is STILL stuff in boxes and I’ve yet to sort a place for everything. Even with M working and living with us right now, we just aren’t getting to everything. The new house does not have an enclosed yard. That means that if the kids are to go outside, M must be with them the whole time. The house is suffering as we adjust to a new routine. However, I love this house. There are so many plans we have and ideas….we just need to get there! I would admit that my bathroom is my nemesis right now and that although I crave a clean house…I just can’t get there! Of course, I have an action plan for the weekend! What is your household nemesis?

If we were having coffee… I would most likely want to discuss my new job. It’s in that new transition phase where I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be doing. I often feel useless at this moment and I despise that! I also am overwhelmed by the program a little bit. I always feel this way when learning a new program, but settle in relatively easy once I get moving. I guess I just miss the comfort. I can’t wait to start diving into learning though! I believe in myself and know I can make this a success!

C, me and N on New Years Eve
If we were having coffee… I’d tell you how much I miss my friends. I miss the random pop ins and coffee nights. I miss the braais! I’m so excited to have CiCi coming the weekend to kuier! I know Hubby and I are going to soak it up. We’re blessed to have friends who want to remain in contact! I miss C and her chats and the comfort of her love. I miss feeling….home with people. I also am hesitant to even begin building relationships here. I feel as if I am betraying my friends! I’d also admit I miss the Dal. I miss the accessibility of everything and I miss how familiar it was. A co-worker was eating a naartjie this morning and the smell wanted to make me cry at the thought of the farm! I knew our town had become home; I was unaware how deep its roots were in me!

If we were having coffee… I’d admit I’ve developed a really bad habit at work now! I drink a cup of coffee which makes me want to smoke. So I smoke which makes me thirsty. Therefore I drink water and go back to my office. 25 minutes later I need to use the bathroom from coffee and water which leads me to leave my office. While I’m up I figure I’d might as well have some coffee and this starts all over again!

If we were having coffee… I’d probably tell you how much I am craving spicy food! Not like chili spicy but like buffalo wing spicy!! No, I’m not pregnant and yes, I know this for sure! However, Hubby has been asking me to make liver cakes all week but I keep forgetting to take them out of the freezer at night to thaw! Therefore, I feel guilty saying I’m going to make my craving but I’ve neglected his the WHOLE week! Eish….. What are you craving? What is your favourite spicy recipe?

If we were having coffee… I’d ask you how you’ve been this past month! I’d ask you what is new and exciting in your world! I’d ask you how can I be praying for you!!!

Thanks so much for that lekker chat! I’ve missed yall! Have a great weekend!!!
