Cassidy has gone for another sleepover, I have missed her for the last couple of days.
Caitlin is doing really well at her job. and starts Year 12 next week, doing really well on her L's, I am getting better, not so nervous. She is out and about with her friends on their P plates, that is a bit scary.
Owen is cheeky and cuddly, and so clever, the stuff he comes out with sometimes leaves me gobsmacked.
Rhys is doing volunteer work at Lifeline, for his Duke of Ed, and I think it has been great for him, although he says it is boring, I think he actually likes it.
DH is working really hard and is dog tired, poor bugger.
I am working, studying, doing Diploma now, it is getting more difficult, working, and running kids around.

School back today. Have had Eloise home for a month! Will miss her.
Caitlin has a sore toe so we're off to the Drs in a couple of hours. No idea what she has done to it but it looks nasty and she is not looking too crash hot after a sleepless night. She is watching Ben 10 explaining the ins and outs of it to me.

I have re invented myself here, too.
Feel like a clean slate, everywhere. Tell you what, I feel soooo much better being off FB. I made a new account for myself and it lasted about 24 hours. I realised that I just wanted to be completely off it.
12 weeks pregnant on the weekend. Wow. That's kinda flown.
