Another 10 days flies by

It's been a very busy 10 ten days for me. The adjustment to a new school is taking longer than I thought. Parents are very welcome to help and I have done just that. I have gone in to help make Ondeh-Ondeh - which is a Malay Traditional dessert in conjunction to the Hari Raya Celebration. The Middle School Play just ended last Saturday and I have gone in to help paint the sets. Sean has had his first football match with the Japanese School - we lost 4-9 and it was amazing watching the Japanese kids as they are petite in size but don't let that fool you, they can FLY across the field like lightning.

We have started painting our whole apartment both inside and out. On the home front, the domestic engineer had created some problems but hopefully it is all ironed out. To tell the truth - I am quite fed up of her giving me so much problems. We will see how it goes otherwise I have decided that maybe she is not worth that much trouble.

Kids wise - I have one that is very happy - funnily enough Sean is wracking up more social engagements than Clarissa nowadays. He is enjoying school more and his parent conference meeting went really well and I was glad. Clarissa was in tears at hers as she scored a "B" for math. She is definitely learning the hard way that its not so easy to maintain the "As" as you proceed on to the Middle School and half-hearted work is definitely not appreciated by her teachers.

I had a very enjoyable day yesterday - made a sock puppet with my friend's daughter - she is such a doll. All that crafting made me want to scrap but I really do not know where to begin. I really need to sit down and start scrapping.

Izzie - wise - she is getting better. Just had her 2 annual jabs and she was house bound for 1 week. She is totally miserable and I wanted to bring her out for a walk but alas, the weather is not cooperating - its raining and being the sensible dame she is, I decided to take a rain check on that walk.

I read a post at Aida's blog and what she said is true for me nowadays. I have attend less social engagements nowadays as I really wish to concentrate on my kids. I scrap less but that does not mean that I will stop scrapping. At this point in time, I think I just want to take a step back and concentrate on myself for a change. Do what I enjoy and I realise that yes I do have some dear friends but some of them - I really have to change my views on them and re-evaluate. I make no apologies for being me and this is who I am - take it or leave it. As I have said before:

"I am me - I am the Me I want to be. I am not Perfect but that's just ME!"

Enough said - time for a quick think and start scrapping.
