More pages, more freebies

This first page is made with the freebie kit (all except the wings on Tiny) See the links below

A couple of these, I did a while ago, but can't remember if I posted them?! I found another freebie kit, if you're interested, on Loucee Creations blog & Vicki's blog (they did a collab-kit).

My washing machine, appears to be working normally... for now! At least the repair dude, didn't charge me for the last visit. He said "the belt had partially come off, that doesn't normally happen".... of course not! it would only happen in THIS house!!!

What's the go? I have a new baby in the house, I'm completely exhausted, don't get anything achieved all day - I mean NOTHING! I start a thousand things, but nothing actually gets done. What is most ridiculous, is I have two children before Tiny, and I'm still shocked at all this?!!! How quickly I forget. Due to the exhaustion (that I feel very embarassed about, because tiny is a GREAT sleeper), and the frustration that I'm not achieveing anything, and the pressure of another person relying on me to meet their needs... I had a bit of a melt down this week. I feel so pathetic, as I've had 2 other babies, why aren't I more prepared? Because nothing prepares you. Not even past experience. I chucked a huge wobbly at Mr T, I cried, I threw stuff, I had lots of "I'm so pathetic" thoughts. I am OK. I'm just trying to find my groove. I'm just a little "derailed" at the moment. I know I'll pull it all together. The seams just exploded this week. For whatever reason, I felt so under pressure, so many people relying on me.... and can't get things done.

Ahhhh. I guess there's always next week.

When I look around me, I know I'm blessed beyond comprehension. I have absolutely nothing to complain about, whatsoever. I pick myself up. And I will try again.

You're an amazing person...I can feel it through your writing! You have a wonderful sense of humor, very loving, and an inspiration to many. Your only fault-your human. Everyone has peaks and valleys. Remember, you have MORE peaks than most! Give yourself time, take some deep breaths, and your sparkle will continue to shine!

Groove? What's that mama? Seems as soon as we find it, it changes again :0)

You're an amazing mama and woman so be sure to give yourself a break!

So, you made that all except for the 'wings on Tiny' All this time, where has Tiny been hiding those wings? ;0)

sounds like you need a coffee with a friend?!! nudge, nudge, wink wink....
My thoughts on your current mental state - when you're pregnant you have 9 months of getting used to the baby growing inside you and the reality grows with the baby. When you adopt you are thrown in the deep end - you had 6 weeks from seeing your daughter to having her in your arms. Not a very long time to get used to it all is it?
Take a chill pill.....you're a fantastic Mum and all-round woman.
Love you lots xxx

Don't you worry, lady. You will do great. It's just the coming-home-and-finding-out-this-is-hard-yet-again-and-you-need-a-day-at-the-spa blues. :-) I will pray for strength for you, dear friend.
