Well, the older boys Casey and Ashley here with us. It’s their summer vacation. 3 weeks with us, 3 weeks with their dad. They don’t get along very well with Alex. Just like any teen boys with their step dad. I don’t seem to be able to get much work done though. The twins just love their older brothers. They seem to have forgotten all about me for now, lol. Doesn’t bother me much, but I feel a little left out, been doing more house work because of it. Casey and Ashley have also learned that I don’t take crap and I know more than they think I do. I have an older brother, I know the ways. I can anticipate what they’re going to do and stop it. The force is strong and on my side 😉 Also sooo much rain. Summer here is driving me nuts. It literally rained ALL day today.
Finally went to Wet’n’Wild. It’s just like Hurricane Harbor, but soooo much bigger and better. I don’t even care about others seeing me in my bathing suit because I KNOW that I will never see them again, ha ha. Got a cup as a souvenir and learned that, yes, you can get a brain freeze from frozen Coke if you drink half the large cup in less than 2 seconds, ha ha. I’m getting soo tan too. My hair has become a lighter, dustier brown color and I’ve been told by no less than 6 ppl that my eyes are in fact no longer dark brown, but are becoming hazel. That’s a little disconcerting actually
Should be going to the Australia Zoo and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary this week. I can’t wait. To hug a koala is on a my resolutions this year and my bucket list 😀 I’m soo excited. The twins are going to love it I think. It’ll be their first visit. I have yet to see a real kangaroo or koala since I’ve been here. Koalas were my favorite animal when I was little. Now it’s a cross between them and giraffes, ha ha.
Well, Sarah and I won’t be able to go to Sydney for Australia day, but we are planning plenty of stuff to do around here. This is the Chinese Year of the Dragon. Around the 20th is the Chinese new year. I was born in 1988, that’s the year of the Earth Dragon. According to ChineseZodiac.com:
Earth Dragons – Years 1928 and 1988
More rooted in the ground, Earth Dragons make better decisions because they act more rationally. Earth Dragons are level-headed and able to control their behaviors. They’re more supportive of others, but they prefer being admired by others.
That makes a lot of sense actually, lol. Everyone seems to think that I’m a psychologist. I think I need to start charging, ha ha, like Peppermint Patty, only I’m going to charge more that 5 cents.
My sleeping hasn’t been so well. Actually hasn’t been that great since I originally got here in October. I have my good nights and my bad nights. Bad ones seem to be coming more often lately. My insomnia is coming back full force. Maybe it’ll help with my weight loss this time.. one can only dream, right? Started a new diet recently, called the Caveman diet. Pretty interesting actually. Fruits and nuts during the day, small portions, then a decent meal of meats and veggies only for dinner. Lots and lots of water. Did you know that drinking a full glass of water first thing in the morning will give you a ‘brain rush’ and wake you up faster than any amount of caffeine? Well, it really does work. Healthier too 🙂
Well, time to sign off now, it’s nearly dawn seeing as how it is now 4:45am and I’m seeing little bits of sun rays peeing thru the trees. I had better get at least a couple of hours sleep before work today. I’ll sleep late on Tuesday, my day off 🙂 Good night dear world 🙂
