My family

Just call me The Mymble. The Mymble is a character from the Moomin books and she is defined as “the mother of a very large and unspecified number of children”. As The Mymble, I thought it was a good idea to nickname my kids according to the characters in the Moomin books. Stick with me, I may just change my mind later. I’ve been married to The Joxter for 10 years. Together, we have 4 gorgeous children. Our oldest and only boy is 6 years old. I’ll call him Snork. In the Moomin books, Snork likes to come up with new inventions and he’s considered a bit of a know-it-all. Second in line is our oldest daughter. She is 4 years old and I’ll call her Mym – short for Mymble’s daughter. In the books, she is described as very independent and carefree with long legs and glossy reddish-yellow hair. My second daughter will be Little My. Little My is fiery and irritable, but also happy and friendly, and she wants to decide things for herself – just like my almost-3-year old. Last, but not least is our baby girl. She is 8 1/2 months old, starting to try the crawling thing with two sharp little fangs. I’ll call her Thingumy, because it’s cute. This blog will hopefully be my outlet for everything going on in our life and my dealings with it.

I love my family dearly and one of our biggest passions is adoption. We would love to add a couple more little faces to our family and desire to add the little ones who have no-one else. Our little family moved to Australia recently and we’re getting used to life in another country. Hopefully, we’ll be able to make our adoption dreams come true here. We are also a Christian, homeschooling family. That’s us!

Floundering

Between me and my goals are the biggest obstacle imaginable… me. How do I motivate myself to do the work involved to get where I want to go and to do what I want to do? In the mean time I keep floundering, treading water in trying to get out of the funk I’m in.

This is the Day

For a long time I’ve been feeling down.  Sad, unmotivated, unhappy.  And I’ve done nothing to try and find happiness again.  I love my children and I love my husband, but I’m stuck in my rut.  So I’ve decided that I will find happiness again.  Gradual unhappiness has sparked gradual doom and gloom, constant negativity.  Each and every day, I will focus on the positive of that day, no matter how small.  Every day, I will take a photo to remember that day.  I am tired of coasting through life:  fat, bored, disillusioned.  From now on, I’m going to be the person I want to be, do the things I want to do, fullfill the dreams I dream.  I will find the sun again.  I will rekindle my connection with the Lord, I will loose weight, I will be the mother I dream of being, I will be a positive person LIVING my life instead of just making it through every dreary day.

Psalm  118:24 – This is the day that the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Here Comes the Sun

Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s alright

Little darling
It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter
Little darling
It feels like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s alright

Little darling
The smiles returning to the faces
Little darling
It seems like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s alright

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling
I see the ice is slowly melting
Little darling
It seems like years since it’s been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and i say,
It’s alright
It’s alright
