Life Lately

Home

You guys won’t believe how badly I want to be here. I just can’t seem to get the words out of my head, which is driving me crazy (and in turn driving my husband crazy). I know I want to write, I know I need to get out of my head, I’ve just been struggling the last few weeks. Maybe it’s just a phase of life as a blogger that I’m going through, whatever, I will get through this. Let’s start by doing a Life Lately post.

Reading

I just finished re-reading the Darkness series by KF Breene. I love fantasy and really enjoyed most of the books in this series, however, really struggled with the last one. Easy and light reading, great when you just need to switch off. Looking for a new series to start on. Any ideas?

Listening

I’m looking for great music to run to. I’ve started running on a Saturday with my sister and need some good upbeat music to run to. So I’ve been listening to a lot of those. Plus, I’ve been catching up on the artists that will be playing at K-Day on 4 March. I am so looking forward to this event!

Feeling

There are so many feels going on. I can’t reveal anything just yet, maybe in the next day or a few. But I’m overwhelmed, scared, excited, ecstatic and just feeling all the feels with this news.

Also, feeling a bit worried and stressed out about the sale of our company that will happen soon. We’re not sure where we stand with our jobs and how secure our future is but I’m taking it one day at a time and trusting that God won’t put me through a situation I can’t get through.

Doing

Lots of fun activities for me. Did my first Parkrun at Meerendal Wine Estate last week. It was so beautiful and I can’t wait to go back this Saturday. Then we did the Color Run in Stellenbosch Saturday past. I wanted to do The Grind on Saturday but I was too late with the tickets (anyone have a spare laying around somewhere lol). Looking at spending a lot of time at the beach with the boys to end off the summer season. We’re also super water conscious and praying really hard for rain.

Kids

Matthew is doing amazingly well at school. Talks about his teacher said this and his teacher said that. When I contradict the teacher I get “But Mommy, my teacher said…” He is 6 years and 1 month old and doesn’t have one lose tooth yet. I know I’m worried about nothing and that it will happen when it’s ready but it’s kinda hard when you have all these kids around you all losing their teeth. And they’re younger than Matthew.

Ethan is 2 and half years old and driving me batty! He is such an independent, stubborn child, I wonder how he’s mine sometimes. He throws the best tantrums, refuses to use the potty (or the big toilet), doesn’t sleep through the night in his own bed, and fights constantly with Matthew. But he gives the longest hugs, the best kisses, he can ask for something so sweetly, melting my heart, and seemingly knows how to get out of a scolding from his dad.

I can’t love these kids any more than I already do, seriously. Being a mom has turned me into such a sap, sheesh!

  1. Hey Kim. I am struggling to blog myself lately, so I kinda get it. I am trying to write more in my journal though and I am not sure if that does not get my attention split between blogging and journaling. But oh well, this phase shall pass too. Well done on the parkruns hey, I want to start again, but I am really struggling with motivation this year. The colour run looks like so much fun.

    A few weeks ago, I finished the Mortal instruments series by Cassandra Clarke. The books are apparently made into a series called Shadowhunters. I first watched the first season of the series which I really enjoyed, and then my friend borrowed me the book City of Ashes, which was actually the second book in the series. I gulped the booked down, in anticipation of the release of the second season of the tv series, but I struggled to get into the tv series as it was a tad different from the book. But the book was really great and I am looking for the other two books. Let me know if you do try this series out.

    Matthew’s teeth don’t stress, they will come off, he won’t be twenty and still have his milk teeth, believe me. LOL

    Shame man, sounds like you have a lot going on, hugs and I am sending positive vibes your way for all that should turn out in your favour.

    1. I think we put too much pressure on ourselves to blog great content for others, instead of doing it for us. I need to work on this one. Hopefully you get to blog again soon and that your motivation to run comes back! The Color Run was major fun!!
      Thank you for the suggestion, going to start right away! I always find that the book is far better than the movie/tv series.
      Lol, yes I know I’m being silly. I guess it’s just part and parcel of being a mom and worrying about your kids (and struggling to not compare them to their peers).
      Appreciate your comment and well wishes!

  2. I am also struggling to blog – I find that if there is too much going on my writing lags. Really do not worry about the teeth – all the dentists will tell you the later the better

    1. Thanks Cat. I think that’s probably what my problem is. So much going on but no words to put them onto the blog. Hahaha I know I’m being silly about it but thanks, I’ll stop worrying about it.

  3. I’ve been blogging for a very long time and when a lot is happening in my life I find it difficult for my mind to focus on one thing. Best to make a list about what is going on and write from there.
