Things going on in my world and head this week:
Hooli is going in for surgery on Monday. Oh the suckiness. He is having a little gland removed from his neck. It is a simple 20min day procedure but I am not loving the whole thing. His anxiety is making me sad. I wish he didnt have to go through it but in the scheme of life it is not a big deal. (I am telling myself that - not him!)
The hardest part is going to be keeping him away from food from 8am until the surgery at around 2pm - oi vey!
Am so enjoying watching Lulu embrace school, new friends and reading. There are very few things in life more rewarding than watching *words* come alive through the eyes of a small person.
She had a rocky start to school, feeling a bit insecure and friendless but she bounced back within a day and now is very excited to find out what new surprise each day will bring.
Both girls are LOVING their violins. I thought it was going to be heinous - having to hear them practice but fortunately their teacher insists on only *beautiful sounds*. Being out of tune is simply not an option.
Hooli is still very into his guitar - we took him for a lesson as a treat a while ago but he is still too young to be tutored. This, however, does not deter him from entering in on any guitar playing opportunity. :-)
I have fallen in love with the Kindle. I bought it for my man who really really wanted it but has yet to really embrace it. Well, times up cos I have fully embraced it and it will take some considerable wangling to get it out of my hands now. I especially love having it in my bag so wherever I find myself I can read whichever book takes my fancy - according to my many moods. ;-)
I still have lovely paper books next to my bed .... there is still nothing that replaces the feel and smell of a real book!
I have just returned from a Direct Pressure Point Therapy session - it is (supposed to be) a body stress relief massage. It was all going swimmingly until she told me that she uses the *meridians* . Some sort of Chinese thing and that she was getting feedback from *them*. She listed some emotional issues she felt *coming through*.
Ick man. I dont like mixing spirituality with anything else. I like mine straight up, thanks very much. I guess I will have to seek out a new DPP therapist. One that does the mechanics and leaves the new age mysticism behind.
And finally....we are all going to Newlands to watch the rugby tonight.
Stormers (me) versus them Lion (my man) - the kids are so excited and are trying to decide who they should support!
Happy weekend mense.
