Resolutions! Really?!

As I sit in my couch (Jan 4, around 3pm), ¬†about to read a book (blissful moment; father and son gone to Home Depot) I feel like writing down these resolutions, or more like reflections based on my experiences in 2014 ūüėČ

1.Back to push ups! (VS of course! The wires feel uncomfortable but what the heck?!)

2.Back to the my Language Industry¬†field, at some point, this year …

3.Less social media (obvious reasons!)

4.More Lego! – does not require batteries or charging and keeps my toddler happy; simply perfect!

5.Try therapy! (I know, I know you guys are soo relieved now)

6.Finally publish my post on ‘American Educational System’ rough and tough guide – it is ready (sort of)!

7.Make no more friends!  (no kidding! waiting list for 2016 coming soon lol)

8.No more play dates at home, unless my friend cleaners are back in business!

9.Enough of me in my blog! It sucks!

10.Either I will find a way, or I will make one. (Philip Sidney)

Now, for real:¬†¬†if I manage to stick to number 1 and number 10 I’ll¬†be good!

How about you?! Did you learn your lessons from 2014? Here we go then! A chance to start all over! Just for that we should be more than grateful ūüėČ

New Year New Me!?

Happy New Year! – this post was written at around 7:30am on New Year’s Day – just saying…

What?! New what??

I went to bed at around 3am, woke up at 7am. Energy!!! (nope) Young child!

Right now, my son is having an overdose of Pokemon (he is 3 1/2 only) because:

1. I can’t quite open my eyes yet

2.I can’t talk just grunt

3.He went to bed on New Year’s Eve at around 8pm and woke up at 7am on New Year’s Day!!!!!!OMG it’s all his fault, right?! Doesn’t he know better?!?! And he kept talking and talking and talking …………………………..

As this little man dragged me out of my bed, along the hallway and into the kitchen…I kind of saw the dining table and a pack of Mochi (Japanese ice-cream) there, all alone…but it was like sevenish in the am so I just ignored it, thinking: ‘Wow, the girls finished it all up last night.’

Arriving at the kitchen, the cluttered sink greats me:’Ow, hi yesterday’s party’.¬† Ignore it… I go into the pantry and grab a healthy breakfast for the little one:

As healthy as I could get this am! Impressive!
As healthy as I could get this am! Impressive!

After my cup of tea, on my way to my pc, I see the Mochi at a closer up:

Would you look at that! Japanese ice-cream does melt overnight!
Would you look at that! Japanese ice-cream does melt overnight!

What the heck!!!!!! The teens left a box of ice-cream overnight on the dining table, on the top of the Hungarian white cotton table-cloth!! – I woke up!

Rushed to the sink and finally saw my lawn, through the kitchen window…trashed…the only trashed lawn in the tidy little court where we live…Just to¬† remind all the neighbours: those guys had some fun last night…Who cares!? (me ignoring again) It’s New Year’s morning! (very, very morning, it’s too morning for me!!!I feel like I’m gonna die!!!!!!!!!).

So, Happy New Year Moms! Welcome to 2015! Thank God some things never, ever change:

Teens are messy and have no clue! Toddlers get up early and turn on the chatterbox mode! Mothers are made out of steel! Oh yeah! ūüėČ

I am invincible! Yes, Adriana. Feel the youth! Like High School years: when you believed you knew it all! You could do anything! Invincible an immortal! This is the mindset you need to look after 3 kids! (so que nao! rs!)

ha ha ha

And so our fabulous year starts all over again! Much health, patience and superpowers for you, girls! ūüėČ
