A Road Trip Nightmare

Today’s Road Journey Nightmare!!!

It rained nearly all the way to the Sunshine Coast today. Not your every day little bit of rain….but rain that came down so hard we could not see the road.

That really freaked me out. My heart was pounding, and I was giving the chair a death grip.

When I was about 19 I rolled my new car (a second hand car that was new for me) on a bend while it was raining. It was raining and I hit a oil slick. I ended up rolling my car three times over, ending up the right way just before a huge drop off a cliff. The Car was totaled….so badly that the roof had moved back from the car and the front widow was completely gone.

I remember sitting there thinking “oh no I am going to be late for work, and I need to be there because I was the manager and I had the keys to the place”. I even thought about trying to drive the car but soon realised that was not a good option when my door would not even open. The window wipers were still going even though the window was god knows where (i never did find that window!!).

Looking back I still can not believe that I walked away from that accident. I sure had a very good guardian angel looking down on me that day.

Today’s Road Trip Nightmare

Today I kept thinking about that accident. I kept telling the boys to be quiet so that Daddy could keep driving safely. We had four of our woody boys (our oldest stayed at home) and it was not a good trip.  They fought, They really fought. I was so stressed out by the end that I needed Pain relief to help my headache. I normally don’t like to take anything for the pain (prefer to ride it out) but I just knew that for me to travel home at the end of the day I was going to need something!!!

Our Next Home

So We checked out the area we have decided to settle on for the next 12 months. Buderim. It is a really pretty place, with lots of trees and so very green. Its really dry here at D’aguilar so to see green grass for a change was nice. I am looking forward to the move now that we have decided where we are going to.

Before it was too up in the air. But since we had a talk on Friday night we now have a plan to work with for the next 12 months and it is going to be a exciting year in 2010. So looking forward to moving….Christmas……….fun times ahead for us. What has been different in your household lately?

Merry Christmas and have a Safe Happy New Year.

So Much Has Happened…..

SO Much has Happened in the past two weeks……

Where do I start?

I have been really slack with getting on here lately, and for the past two weeks have been so busy that I have not set the time aside to write here.

Gosh Time is flying by too quickly.

So not ready for Christmas!!!

Have not even brought any presents as yet…..Not too worried though because I have faith that it will all get done some how before Xmas.

What has Happened?

Well it looks like our house has sold. We have a contract on the house, with a pest/building inspection booked in for Thursday at 12 noon.

Once that goes through and gets approved we will be settling by the late January. Which means we need to be moved by no later than 15th January!!!

So we are having our last Christmas at our house. Sad but also Happy at the same time because that means we get to move our life forward.

What else has happened with the Woody boys?

Well last night we went to Carols by Candlelight at Mt Mee. without our oldest as he decided to drag his heels and not get ready in time. Which was a shame because it was just so a magical night.

Today was Cameron Birthday. He is our fourth boy, and I can not believe he turned 8!!! My the years fly by.

It only seems like yesterday he was born by emergency C-section. The only reason he had to be born quickly was because the Doctor broke my waters too soon, with the Midwife behind her saying “No, Don’t touch her waters yet because she is not ready” So wished I had spoken up against the Doctor. It was the first time that a doctor had stepped in with one of my labors and was the only time that I needed to have a C-section. But at least he was born safe and sound.

So our house has been full on here…..

We also had David’s parents down for the week just gone, to celebrate Cameron Birthday, and a late Celebration for Zachery 14th Birthday.!!!

Never a dull moment in our Woody House, with five Woody Boys!!

How has your week been?


Trying so very hard to stay sane raising five boys 🙂

PS:- Will post photos of Cameron Birthday as soon as possible!!!
