Five on the Fifth

Here we go - some random thoughts that have been on my mind lately - five random thoughts to be exact because of the fifth (which is the date in case you are confused)....

1. I just recently learned what a dingo is. I always heard "the dingo ate your baby." But I had no clue what a dingo was. I thought it was more kangaroo like. Turns out it isn't and the dingo would actually probably eat your baby...

2. I get the winter blues every year. I'm not excited about the coming months.

3. Sometimes I feel like I have to do it all. But I don't. And I cant. I'm kind of tired of society putting messages out there that I'm not a good mom if I don't do daily crafts, if I let my kid watch TV and movies, if I don't feed her organic food only, if my house is messy, if I get cranky and frustrated. My little girl loves me. That's enough. And I'm working on believing that everyday. It's a constant reminder but I'm getting there.


4. I am reading Emma by Jane Austen and I feel like it is taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get through. I have been enjoying it. But it is hard to get through. But I am determined to finish it. I would love to finish it before the start of the new year but I'm not optimistic. I guess I better get to reading.

5. I try to write in my journal every day but that doesn't always happen. I always feel better when I write though. There's nothing quite like clearing your mind everyday.
