Mum won the visa appeal!!! Which means after a couple more weeks for paperwork john will be allowed to come back to Australia!!!!!! We have to get a decision on the children yet though, however we are very hopeful that they will be approved pretty quickly 🙂

I went to the hearing with her and was ecstatic when told, mum was much more unemotional at the scene….when we got home and it started to sink in, she finally showed some emotion….

I have also discovered that west Richmond is a crappy station as the train I need to catch does not stop here all that much, it skips. So I need to get on one train and change at Clifton hill, would have been nice had I realized that a week ago 🙂 hehe but my powers of deduction at 7am are well below minimum 🙂

Where do we go from here

So decided last night I have to get back on track with the food aspects of our lives. I am not losing weight as I would like and i think that is because we have reverted back to bad eating habits.

I made one of our usual salads tonight and there was enough for both of us to bring to work today….once we reduced our serving size….

I also bought some multi vitamins last night, but forgot to take one this morning 🙂 supposed to take it with breakfast….another issue I need to remedy….Hoping that helps the exhaustion I am feeling….fingers crossed!

I have my uni exam on the 28th as well, my first exam in over 10 years…. Not sure how I am going to get through it. I am still waiting for my second assignment results and I did pass all the tests and the first assignments, so if I can manage to pass the exam, I should be ok!!!!

I enrolled for my next two subjects, intro to management and intro to programming…..so they start the day of my exam….had to do them first as they are the pre-reqs to the rest of my modules.

Can’t believe I am doing a degree finally and I am starting next modules already!!!! It is bloody awesome!!!

I am not looking for work anymore either, I sort of stumbled into a job working with my dad, did I mention that already? Can’t remember! It’s not a permanent thing, just until my step mother gets back on her feet really, but we don’t know when that will be, so for the moment it is giving me excellent skills and experience I can use for my job hunt when this is over 🙂 and I am getting paid 🙂

We are also trying to refinance our loans into one as that will give us more money each week, and means I don’t really need to work at all…..and no…not talking about babies!!!! Lol

Less than ordinary

I have been busy helping my dad at his shop, trying to clean up and make some sense of the system my step mum had…I am sure she had one…somehow…. 😀

It has been long days and getting home at about 7pm as the traffic getting home is horrendous, then by the time I make dinner and clean up it is 9 and I am basically collapsing into bed. I am exhausted all the time and the more tired I am getting the more irritable.

I am going to really focus on getting this PCOS under control this year. I am going to buy a multivitamin I think to help combat the general feelings of exhaustion, perhaps that will allow me the motivation to exercise, as I have dropped off the wagon this last 2 weeks and I lost like 6kgs -I want to keep going!!!!

I am also going to cheat and order some hydroxycut….it’s apparently awesome for pure weight loss…a friend of ours has used it whenever he needs to drop weight after being lazy….that will hopefully help as well….no idea 🙂

My mum has the mrt appeal this week, I am going along for moral support and will probably head to her place afterwards, we are hoping the give her a decision at the hearing rather than dragging it out….fingers crossed on that as it could be a very good or bad night….

I just want this to be over for her and John. I can’t cope being away from my hubby for a week, I can’t imagine being away for months….

Time for work, if the train ever turns up, melb train system is shit…..I missed a train because the machine wouldn’t take my fucking coins so I had to go all the way round to the other platform, then the next train has been delayed and delayed….I will never get to work!

Playing catch up

I have had a very busy couple of weeks and I just have barely even been near my computer at all….I just told hubby I did not want to watch anything or do anything other than sit here and catch up on  stuff.  JUST FUCKING STUFF!!!!!  I don’t think he was impressed, but well…I am sorry….I haven’t been having my technological fix every day anymore and it is making me a little antsy.  I also need to finish my assignment this weekend as it is due tomorrow night before midnight.

Lots to catch up on, so follow me after the break 😀
