Bad bad bad

I'm been a very bad blogger... sorry.... I apologize to my adoring fans... LOL

I'm just in a state of limbo right now and don't really have anything to say. So much going on, and so little freaking time.

I leave you with this:

Things I Hate About Everyone

1.People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2.People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V.. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3.When people say 'Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too'. Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4.When people say 'it's always the last place you look'. Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their @sses!

5.When people say while watching a film 'did you see that?'. No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

6.People who ask 'Can I ask you a question?'.... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7.When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8.When people say 'life is short'. What the hell?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9.When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks 'Has the bus come yet?'. If the bus came would I be standing here, dumb @ss?

It's Wednesday and I haven't blogged in a while. The world is going to come to a stand still..... maybe not..... LOL

I don't really have anything to say right now. Keeping all the good stuff for my side line project that I'm working on.

So for now you will have to be happy with the following tips that I received via email from a good friend:

To get rid of mosquitoes at night:
Keep leaves of mint near your bed or pillows and in around the room.

To remove ink from clothes:
Put toothpaste on the ink spots generously and let it dry completely, then wash.

To check freshness of fish:
Put it in a bowl of cold water. If the fish floats, it's fresh.

To boil potatoes quickly:
Skin one potato from one side only before boiling.

To avoid tears while cutting onions:
Chew gum.

To whiten white clothes
Soak white clothes in hot water with a slice of lemon for 10 minutes 10.

Ants Problem:
Keep the skin of cucumbers near the place or ant hole.

And that's all folks.... till next time.. BYE

Mommy Makeover......

Oooooohhhhhh, I love the new mommy look. Go check it out..... Mommy

Oh and spot the article written by yours truly. LOL ;-)

I'm starting to ease into panic mode. We have less than one month to find a new home and move. Please think of us and wish us well. We need it so badly, all the luck we can get.

Another very weird feeling for me is AVOIDING PREGNANCY. For the last 2 and a half years I've been doing everything possible to fall PG with no success. Now this cycle, we are doing everything possible to AVOID falling PG. Do you have any idea what kind of mind switch that is???

My ovaries are aching, my OPKs are positive. We are ready to O!! And we aren't doing a blady thing about it. Darn medical aid...... fluck it.......

Then I think, we have been doing this "hope to fall PG" thing for so long now, why all of the sudden would we fall PG now. Just carry on like usual. Don't avoid. Why would this cycle make any difference. Why would you fall PG this cycle??? I tell you why, cause that is the way my life works. Some one up there loves to play sick jokes on me. Some one believes I can handle all the stress and pressure. The one time when I don't want to be PG, I will be........ jinxing it, maybe..... But we are avoiding, so no chance of that.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
Helen Keller

Just something to think about over the weekend!

Have a great one!

To see a lion in your dream, symbolizes great strength, aggression and power. You will overcome your emotions and/or difficulties. As king of the jungle, the lion also represents royalty, leadership, pride and dominion. You have much influence over others. You may also need to exercise restraint in your own personal and social life.
To dream that you are attacked by a lion, indicates that you have many obstacles to overcome. You must resist the force that is driving you to self-destruction.

Last night I had the most terrifying dream. McK and myself were at my old Primary School, walking through the sports fields. As we turn a corner, there are lions every where. Mostly male lions, huge and on the prowl. I grab McK and we hide under this plastic cover. This one lion walks up to our hiding place and catches me looking at it.

He winks at me, yes a lion can wink. Well in my dream any way. Then he starts pretending to attack me. All the other lions, must have been about 20 of them take note of this and walk off to find other “targets”. So this lion actually saved me and McK from being attacked from the others. Then he calmly walked off. I just lay there sobbing and holding McK.

Why do I dream this sh*t……

I preferred my night before dream about taking 10 pregnancy tests……. All positive….. Mind you in my dream my mother took a test too.... positive....

Pregnancy Test
To dream that you are taking a pregnancy test, may be a metaphor for a new phase you are entering in your life (a new job, relationship, etc.) You may feel that you are being put to the test as to whether you are prepared or ready for these changes. Alternatively, this dream may be literal in meaning and address your anxieties/fears of getting pregnant.

Well one thing for sure is, that we are entering a new phase. Lets hope it will be less stressful and more happy than the last one.

You won't be in the mood to work -- not at all -- and there's no reason to force yourself. Nothing except that small, inconsequential problem of where the money comes from.

That is so how I feel today. Actually felt like this the whole week already. I need to get some fire lit under my ……..

I’m way too lazy and unmotivated for my own good. And it has to change DRASTICALLY!!!

Ok, I know I complained about the heat wave a few weeks ago.... but come on enough with the rain already. (and in case you haven't noticed, I'm not very creative with Titles..) LOL

It's been pouring down for almost 4 days non stop. I would be fine with it, if I was cuddled up in bed watching a movie and maybe a warm cheesy pizza or two. But I'm not. I'm sitting in front of my PC trying to work.

I'm in no mood to chat on line with my friends.. *blushes* Sorry girls. Just feeling blah..... and don't really have anything to say. Rather just pretend to miss me until I return.

I also just polished off a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Yummy, although I shouldn't be eating ice cream for brunch???

I'm starting to panic. We have to move house in January. No idea where to yet. But it's on the horizon. A whole new chapter is about to start for my little family as well as that of my parents. Exciting yet terrifying.

Brain dead today

Yup, and it ain't getting better...... I need sleep and sleep and maybe some more sleep.

DH's party was AWESOME. Except for the part when I accidentally flashed my left boob at my FIL and best friend. I was coming down the slip and slide very graciously. I didn't even realize it at first until I looked down. Of course my friend caught it on camera. And even though he has a "don't delete pics off my camera" policy, I deleted it. :)

The rest of the party was great fun. A few of us ended up in the jacuzzi and throwing jelly around in down anything. Do you know how cold jelly is when you are sitting in a warm jacuzzi??? Shame poor DH, didn't get to join on the fun because we were too busy ordering him around.... **Blushes** Don't worry I will make it up to him later today.

And with that, I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE!!! Hope you have a great day and get to leave early.

We have a few new stress issues in the pipeline. Will give out more details over the next few weeks. One of which is that TTC is off the cards till January next year, maybe even as late as March.

Have a wonderful week where ever you are......

9 November 2002


6 years ago I became Mrs. Murray.

Babe, we all know it hasn’t been an easy ride. We have had our fair share of ups and downs. But we have always made it work. I hope the next 6 years are a lot less bumpy. :-)






I love you, and always will.

My mind is entertaining two thoughts…. And I can’t decide which of the two relates to how I feel….

1) Do I have faith that we will one day have another child?

2) Or do I just hope that one day we will have another child???

“Faith is believing in things that common sense tells you not too.”

Common sense tells me our TTC journey is far from over, maybe it will never be over. My common sense tells me not to set my heart on having another child. So do I have faith then that we will????? I don’t know…. I don’t think I have faith….

Do I hope???

Yes, I hope with all my heart and soul that we do. One day……

I think my hope is greater than my faith.

I don’t have much faith at the moment. I have a lot of hope.

But do I need faith in order to hope????

Have I confused the cr@p out of any of you, as I have just myself???? LOL

Girl, wishing you an AWESOME pregnancy!!!

In other news.... The wicked witch from the uterus flew in late last night. Making her presence known for the 33rd time since we ditched the BCP…..

My baby

Well, my little girl. Since she isn't really a baby any more....


I'm still waiting for DH to download some latest pics of her. But this one will have to do for now. Isn't she gorgeous??

And she just proved to me yesterday that she is indeed a wonderful child. So well mannered and polite. We were treated to an outing at the Movies with my aunt and her 2 grand kids. McK was in her element and giggled all the way through. I have such an awesome child. She said her thank yous and pleases. And just over all well behaved. I couldn't have been prouder of her.

Except of course when it was time to say good bye to her "cousins". She had a little melt down with loads of tears. But I think she was just over tired from the days excitement. Poor thing.

We are having a heat wave at the moment, 36 degrees Celsius. It's freaking hot, wish there was a way to move my note book to the swimming pool. I'm sure I'll get way more work done, sitting in the pool typing with one hand, while the other hand holds my ice cold Vodka Martini?? (ok, any cocktail, Martini was just easier to spell.LOL)

I seriously can not believe this year has only two months left. It's almost DH and my wedding anniversary (9th Nov) and DH's bday (10 Nov). We have one big party planned for Sunday (9th). So looking forward to it!! We having a picnic lunch with close friends and family.

I'm still having IPS..... not fun, it's annoying!!! Just trying to ignore them best I can. ;-)
