"Musings and Ramblings of A Convoluted Mind"

{December 3, 2009}   Busy Day But Nothing To Say

Day Three of the 24 Days of Christmas – done.

Today was a cleaning day.  Worked in the house until a little after two and then I took the little man outside to play.  Met up with the neighbor across the street who has a little girl a few months younger than Bradley.  They played for awhile and I realized that Bradley has forgotten how to share.  He used to be so good at it… but he’s been out of playgroups and hourly care sessions for a few months.  Woops!  I know I need to get him back in hourly care, just for the social interaction (as well as for my sanity).

I had wanted to share some of the things I that put on Bradley’s wish list for Christmas, toys made from recycled products – way cool, but I’m tired tonight.

Slacked on my P90X because I was sore but I think I made up for total lack of activity with the cleaning.  It’s the monthly “big scrub” I like to do where every surface is over turned.  I guess it’s a mini spring cleaning… or fall or winter… whatever.

77/365 Anything But Love


I am so tired today and I’m not sure why. I’ve done my share of running around, took the baby to the doctors, had to get an eye exam myself, got new contacts and glasses, met hubby for lunch… by the time I got home I was bushed. And I haven’t even gotten to the gym yet! Today is a late day for the gym since Bradley isn’t in daycare today.

I just don’t feel motivated today. In face, this picture for today was a last resort (but I think it came out pretty well actually). I just wanted to show a friend the cute ring I got for myself. Sadly the batteries died in the camera died before I could really take any more pictures. At least I had this though!

I’m getting fed up with living in Korea. Even with having a three bedroom apartment, our place it TOO small with a toddler running around. Basically we live in a giant square with areas sectioned off for bedrooms. We can’t set things up to be very baby proof and even locking the doors, they are so poorly made, that our son can jimmy the knob and open the doors. He gets into the computer and messes with stuff. I know I shouldn’t really be mad at him but I get so aggravated! Some days I wonder if I’m cut out to be a mom. And here, hubby wants a second and THIRD child. I really don’t think this is for me.

I mean, when my kid is being good he’s awesome. He really is a spectacular child. I wouldn’t trade him in for anything. I just get tired of having to tell him no all the time. He knows he shouldn’t do something but does it for attention. But I can’t entertain him ALL day. I need some me time too. I’m always available to him but he just wants all of me all the time.

Me and The Wiggles, anyway.
