It’s the middle of the year already and I’m feeling a bit out of whack. I’ve gotten slack with lots of things; blogging, meal planning; buying instead of baking, grocery shopping too often, not reading to the kids, not keeping on top of homework, not exercising, eating too much junk etc, etc, etc – I’ve lost my mojo a bit and am feeling slack, sluggish and unorganised I don’t like it!
So, tonight I’m ‘Taking Stock’ again using Pip’s list. You might remember I did that back in February and I really enjoyed it. The list did make me stop and have a bit of a think about what was going on in our life at present and helped to get my head straightened a little! I’m using it as another little kick along to get me back on track!
I also loved reading everybody else’s lists last time – it was a great way to get up to date with what was happening in your lives and some were so funny, so feel free to copy the list and have a go yourself!
Here’s what’s going down in the Fealy household in June 2014;
Making : A newsletter for our local scout group.
Cooking : Chicken Stirfry for tea – it wasn’t great.
Drinking : Gah – Coke again – boo! I kicked my nasty habit on our trip but it has snuck back in again!
Reading: Outback Magazine – love it!
Wanting: More time to read books, magazines, newspapers and blogs!
Looking: Forward to our Bell Girl’s weekend with my Mum and sisters this month!
Playing: This song by G.Love – not my usual but oh so funky!
Deciding: If I should start going to the gym or not?
Wishing: I could get it together and join in with the Walking Book Club – would be fun!
Enjoying: The first, beautiful little smiles from Kipp!
Waiting: For winter to arrive in Mareeba! I want to wear jeans and a jumper!
Liking: Hearing the kids all singing – even if it is all ‘Frozen’ soundtrack songs!
Wondering: What our next big decision will be? You must read this post from Kate at Foxs Lane – it is so good!
Loving: Having a newborn in the house again!
Pondering: What sort of theme we can do for Toby’s birthday party in July?
Considering: What movies we need to watch on our girls weekend – any recommendations?
Watching: Greys Anatomy and Suits.
Hoping: That our first camper trailer trip with a newborn will be ok! Otherwise it will be a long 2 weeks.
Marvelling: At how much can happen in 12 months!
Needing: Some new, non maternity clothes.
Smelling: Dog Poo – grrrr new puppy!
Wearing: Matt’s winter Pyjamas as all mine are in the wash due to baby puke!
Following: Think Big, Live Simply a new blog I’m checking out for inspiration on lots of things!
Noticing: That Matt and I are starting to show our age! Wrinkles, grey hairs, no hair etc!
Knowing: It is way past my bedtime and I am going to be tired and cranky tomorrow!

Admiring: My mum’s beautiful crotchet skills!!
Sorting: Nappies and inserts for nappies – love cloth nappies!
Buying: A pretty writing pad to start writing real, actual letters again. And stamps are 70cents now? When did that happen?
Getting: Grumpy that I’m not getting everything done!
Bookmarking: http://www.kingfisherresort.com.au – we are heading there in a few weeks.
Disliking: The horrible barky coughs that the kids have at the moment!
Opening: The chook pen to collect the eggs.
Giggling: At this laundry inspired post by Kelle Hampton – I totally relate!

Now it’s your turn!
