Happy Easter weekend! Once upon a time we would have been on a plane right about now, heading home... I'm trying not to think about it, while wishing my family good weather for camping... We'll do our best to be there next year.
This week marks the end of March and I'm glad it's over. It wasn't very fun. It ended how it started: with tears and puffy eyes. Michael and I forgot about our first wedding anniversary and our more significant anniversary of seven years - that's how bad, confused, and full-on, the month has been.
We're coming to terms with signing a new lease for our current apartment, and working on some sort of plan, but, with everything as clear as mud, it's hard to put into words. It doesn't help that we keep changing our plans, although a constant theme is getting back to Australia as quickly as is practical or reasonable or polite. It's doing our heads in, so at this rate we really will be here until June 2016... unless we get a job offer in Australia and then we'll be heading home, quick-smart.
So, yay for a new month, yay for green grass that needs mowing, and yay for Facetime and Skype. And yay for homemade hot cross buns - there's a post to write, I know. Here are some things to read and contemplate with your hot cross buns, morning coffee or tea...
I'm thinking about buy this book, but I'll probably borrow it from the library.
The sad state of science in Australia.
Just found out about KidKnits and I'm a little in awe of the young girl who got it all going.
Five things about raising boys.
A little chuckle for babywearers.
Why you shouldn't post anything about your children online. And why you should.
More thoughts on waking early.
Photos of our home.
"This family is full of brain problems and love."
A wonderful surprise pregnancy.
And a big thank you to everyone who stopped by here over the week - it means a lot to me.
