Hola, I should have gone to Spanish lesson yesterday but it was moved till today. And as it turnes out I just don’t have the time. Giving it another thought I’m sure it’s for the best too. I’m a hormonal mess. I can barely focus at all and it’s a struggle to get started. I’m in between emotions wanting to throw stuff in the wall and just wishing someone would hug me, even if it has to be a stranger. It all sounds so dramatic and this time it actually is. Everything does however feel better after morning yoga at the kids school. It was a relief to breathe into the flow, opening the mind and feeling the heat to spread from the inside and out, all the way to the tip of my toes.
Let’s all agree on being kind, I’m aware of that I did the opposite side.
Yeah, still need to get myself a yoga mat. I was slipping around more than Bambi on ice.
Yesterday the kids had their photos taken at school. They were so excited and. Did their hair in the morning.
When I picked up the kids Alba asked me if I could give her a job. She wants to earn money to buy a jumper with a flower on it. So, I said she could help me with the laundry, as that is “outside” of her own (unpaid) duties. Those are: making their beds, picking up toys and taking out their plates themselves. I believe in the kids knowing we all help out at home. That we clean “our own mess”. I’m hoping they will be grateful about that when they get older.
Wille did not want to earn money. He cleaned his room and then wrapped himself up in the sofa. It seemed very cosy.
I was in the mood for this curry dish even though I did not have a recipe or had ever made it. So delicious if I get to say so myself.
Yes! Yes! Yes, children! I’m going to try to say YES more to the kids this week. More than ever, to as many questions as possible. Try not to assume and expect them to “know by now”. All this to actually make my “no” stronger. I’ve lost the power guys, seriously, sometimes I say no like 12 times in a row. No, not even that’s enough for me to be heard or listened to. So I’m trying this. Seven days. Choosing my battles very, very carefully. They don’t know what they’ve started. This means war and I must win.
Adios, for now.
