I have no EYEdea…

It’s been a rough few weeks.  I’m not sleeping – there’s so much going on right now that I manage to make it through the day alright, get home at night, cook dinner and collapse into bed.  It’s all fine and well until I drift off to sleep and then suddenly I remember things I need to do the following day, or things I forgot to do yesterday, or decisions needing to be made or changed or undone and and and.  My subconscious is an asshole.  It won’t let me sleep.  Despite the fact that I’ve taken to swallowing Jon’s mild sleeping tablets and sometimes even popping a pain killer or two to combat the headaches (and yes, to add to the sleeping cocktail, which seldom works anyway).  Life is hard, friends.

But having said that, life is beautiful too.  There are such huge opportunities for me to still experience, and I wish I didn’t always forget that.  I need to appreciate that while being adult is much harder than I ever expected, I’ve got so much to be grateful for.

Anyway, enough about that.  Please think of me tomorrow as I will be donning the ever-sexy hospital gowns hospitals give out to patients.  Because I’ll be a patient tomorrow!  I’m getting my eyeballs lazered!  I’m so excited!

Less of this:

And then after that I go on annual leave on Wednesday!  It’s been a long year and I am looking forward to staying in Joburg this year to relax, work on the house and spend some QT with Jon.  It’ll be my first Christmas without any family this year too, so need to still wrap my head around that…

But look how pretty our Christmukka tree is [blue & white is the standard Jew colour choice around this time of year, so therefore I’ve named it our Christmukka tree]:

What are you doing over the festive season?

    I can relate to what you’re going through at the moment, I get into bed and all of a sudden there are 5 or 6 things I need to do – I’ve put a notepad and pen next to my bed so when I remember something, I quickly write it down and make it tomorrow’s problem, this has worked quite well.

    This year needs to come to an end though, the last few weeks have been incredibly taxing and I’m starting to take strain. Must admit though, I went for a long cycle on Saturday and this has helped a lot.

    Good luck with the surgery, can’t wait to hear how it goes – no more glasses \o/

      Oooh Chrispy I love that idea, I’ll be taking a notepad to bed with me from now on. Hopefully things will relax in the next few weeks though. Are you going to be taking some leave? You deserve it this year, I hope so.

      • Chris M says:

        Oops, I didn’t receive a notification about your response! I really hope the surgery went well, was thinking of you.

        Yes, notepad really does make a difference, I wasn’t a believer until I tried it. I must stress though, notepad, not mobile/tablet!

        Leave.. I’m going away for a few nights, just about 2 hours drive from home, but it’s on a farm and it’ll be great to get away from all the day to day happenings. Then, I think I’ll try to take a proper holiday in April/May 🙂 You?

    I have been having a rough time even doing the stuff I *do* remember to do lately! I can’t even think about the random stuff I remember later… I’m just overwhelmed and completely unmotivated. And yet I really don’t want to head into the new year with unfinished business hanging over my head.
    It sucks!

    We’re spending Christmas at our house and heading off on a short holiday from the 28th…

    Hope you guys have a smashing Christmukka!

    So jealous if the surgery ( says the woman who sells glasses for a living…. ). We’re spending Tullys first Xmas with my family then 2 days later on Flynns 3rd birthday we’re going to Sydney for a few days, have a bit of time of together…
