Busy Time Here...

Apparently this is my 260th post. My events are never ending, and as has been recommended to me many a time, I ought to write a book...or perhaps it is already written right here? So much is not written too... so does that mean that the book, even if published, is half a story? A chop short of a Barbie? A peg short on the clothesline? Whatever...I will think about it.

I know my blog is not as exciting as some others that I read. Take for instance, Steph from Sydney..Hi Steph :) She has never ending stories of fun and frivolity. She takes the piss out of herself but does not realise she is actually, not a smart arse, intelligent smart.

My life, I would not change it for anything. My kids and my other half and I have good health. We stick together through thick and thin. We fight like cat and dog but at the end of the day we know we love each other. How do I know this? Because when I get told I am just "Such an awful mum, you don't let me do anything!" (Door slams) , I know that at the end of the night when they come up to me and gimme one two and three smoochy cheek kisses that the love is still there. OF COURSE I rub it in and say, "Soooo, I am such a bad awful suckie of a mum hey...butcha still love me hey" ..and we all laugh and I say goodnight..until the next morning.

Not everyday is the same, even though feeding time at the zoo (breakfast) begins at about 7am usually. I am happy with progress of the kids at school and they seem to be coming home with a new achievement certificate on a weekly basis. Yeah, I know, we learn something new everyday and all that jazz!! But, it is great that the school does recognise the achievements in a positive manner...who said Public Schools were no good?

Anyway, tomorrow is the start of the last week of vacation time for the kids. I plan on taking them to Science Works and into town for some Krispy Kreme..yeah, that is what they wanted and they haven't had it for a very long time as there are only a couple of stores about (thank goodness). Oh, and the kids are going with their Grandma to see a play in our fine home town which is based on an Australian book. They cannot wait as they know the story well now.
Me, I am going to work a few shifts as hubby has 5 days off of work coming up. I do love my work, it allows me to get in there and fine tune my assessment skills. You see, people may think I sound like I am 12 years old, but I have acquired much knowledge in my years of nursing.
At the end of the day, I may be tired when I get home, but I know I made a difference even if it was for 8 hours of some one's life. No more than when my colleagues and I bring someone back to life, using our skills, what a rewarding day that is. Although, you know, I don't wish it to happen to anyone and most certainly not every time I work!

Reminds me of one of my favorite Cowboy Junkies songs - Check it out live here.

Betty said...

Sounds like a very rewarding life, all around. Lucky you.

Mom said...

Sounds like a wonderful life!

peppypilotgirl said...

You blog well, Cazzie - far more interestingly than I do! Your life sounds fulfilling and full of love, what more can one ask?

Thanks for sharing your life with us!

Trundling Grunt said...

sounds like you are in pretty good shape all round. And that is a good thing.

phishez_rule said...

I love scienceworks. Well, I did when I was a kid. I haven't been in quite a while, what with the gorwing up and moving interstate bit.

Keshi said...

u dun even need to think Caz...u r such a great mum...we r ur witnesses too :) Cos ur blog is full of ur kids all the time...thats enough evidence.


M said...

this is a great book - I've read it to the kiddies at school many a time ;)

And correction - it sound like you make a difference every second of the day!

captain corky said...

I enjoy your blog and your family seems very happy.

Jules said...

You are a great Mum, with great ideals for your family. My days are very similar to yours and as much as they do my head in some days, I wouldn't change my days for anyone else's. Although I'd love to have the odd weekend in the life of Steph!!

Eternally Curious said...

No doubt about it in my mind, Cazzie. You are a great mom and you make a difference in many, many lives. Those of your patients, your blog readers, your family ... the list is very long indeed.

I like your blog b/c you write for yourself first. I may not always post.. but I read all of them. If it wasn't for that nearly 24hr plane flight... you'd find me on your doorstep :)


poody said...

I love reading your blog I check it every chance I get!

Bibi said...

People come back to your blog (even though YOU say it's not exciting) because you share interesting stories. And because you're always upbeat and have something good to say. There's not too much of that in the world today.

I think your family, and your patients, are all lucky to have you in their lives.

susan said...

I love coming to see what's up in your neck of the woods. (and I even learn something every week!)

As it's already been said, you are constantly making a difference in the world.

mjd said...

I think that you are a wonderful writer, and you sound like a fun, caring, conscientious mom. Who could ask for more?

Alicia said...

You'd only be a bad mum if you DID let them do whatever they wanted!
You're doing a fab job, Caz!

Cazzie!!! said...

Andrew, oh noes, I read your day at Scienceworks, what a shame. It is a great place, I love the old machines and watching them work now with old guys running them named "Graeme". Just like my dad.

Top Cat, ty for te compliment and the visit.

Mark, that is a hoot, will have to play that one again.

Betty and Mom, thanks :)

Peppy, thanks alot, and I love reading over on your site too.

TG, it will get better each day, I just went for a big walk not 10 minutes ago.

Phishez, yeah, it is a good place to go and just take time to look around at. We love it every time we go.

Keshi, ty friend..hugg to you

M, yeah, they look forward to going to the play with their Grandma, and I brought the book and guess what? They know it from school too!

Captain, yes, they are hppy, to be on school vacation. But Sarah is missing her friends now so almost time to go back.

Jules, you said it all too well. And, I think I did have weekends just in Steph fashion when I was at Uni, just now my good times hve evolved to a PG rating LOL

Curious, why ty very much..Cazzie blushes :)

Farmewifetwo, the jug is on the boil and I make a mean cup of coffee :)

Poody, I check on you all the time too :)

Bibi, why thanks heaps, I love posting here too so people can read.

Susan, and you make a difference too with the things you write, I enjoy reading up on you too.

MJD, I would hugg you if you were living closer to me, LOL

Alicia, you know, you put it all into perspective for me right there in that sentence, thankyou :)

Stace said...

Ahhh, isn't it nice when everything is nice?! I'm feeling much the same... my no-longer-so-new job is going really well and I still enjoy each day, Aidan and I are really happy, I just got my motorbike licence, everything is just swimming along... of course, I don't have kids or save people's lives, but maybe one day I'll try both! Good on you Cazzie :)

Menchie said...

Summer's over already? That seemed fast.

Ummmm...Krispy you've got me craving...

Cazzie!!! said...

Stace, such great news lovey, wonderful freedom on the bike for sure too!! Taking the good and running with it is an awesome idea, don't you think? :)

Menchie, hopefully Summer will come back sooner than later already, I do not really love the cold weather, except I do love it when Spring comes in and the gardens look lovely :)
