You probably haven't noticed, but I've set up a new structure for my blog posts. Did you notice that? Mondays being mini-review days. Tuesday and Thursday being dedicated reviews. Friday being a bookish discussion-type post. I only do IMMs every other Saturday to make room for another fun project I'm working on (Awesome Women!). Sundays are currently free. Which leaves Wednesdays, where I've decided to write about personal things. That said, here we go...
We've had a lot of changes around here, I'm finding it a little difficult to get used to. The biggest change, of course is that my oldest Boy is now going to primary school. He looks adorable and yet so grown-up in his uniform. It makes me weepy. I keep having flashbacks of holding him in the hospital just after he was born, now look at him. Luckily, he seems to be really enjoying it, but it is like pulling teeth trying to get him to talk about what he does at school everyday. Or who he plays with. Oh well.
(Another big change for me related to The Boy going to a different school, all the walking! I've just added an hour's walk to my life every single day. Phew.)
And because Littlest felt left out about how much growing up his big brother is doing, we decided to potty train the Littlest. Soon, I won't have any babies left. Only big boys. With no nappies. Oh I need a hug.
I've started a new university course. Lots of reading to do, even if the course isn't as long as my previous one. It's interesting. I've just read a chapter about stress and now we're discussing PTSD, which is something my dad suffers from. I'm finding it all very fascinating. Though it has been hard to ease back into the studying thing. I think the long summer holidays are a struggle. How do other people get used to it?
And! And! N and I decided to give up meat. We're more than 10 days into this new challenge and going strong, even after doing the hard thing and ordering meat-free dishes when we've been out in restaurants. I say 'meat-free' as opposed to vegetarian - because we still eat fish and dairy products and eggs. I feel a lot better about myself and can't see myself changing from this any time soon. I would have never thought it'd be something I could do, but I'm quite happily suprised by it!
So, that's it. How are things going for you? Any big changes recently?
