Man has it been a while!

Guilty as charged!

I know it has been way too long since my last blog. But as I told a friend a while back I'm not going to blog if I have nothing to say or write for that matter.

I mean I started this blog for myself. To put my thoughts onto paper and to help me make sense out of a senseless world. Well lately I've just felt bleh. Not in a bad or a good way just bleh. As if my thoughts were too dull or too emotional or even to gross to mention. So that's what I did...............NOTHING


Thing is I still feel like I don't really have anything to say. I mean its is not like there is nothing going on, cause there is, believe me, it's just bleh. I'm going to go watch Twilight Eclipse with my dad on Thursday and maybe again on Saturday with a few girlfriends. I just have to see Jake's round and very muscular shoulders again and again and who knows maybe again!

So yeah that is boring old me updating everybody that I'm still alive and hopefully the blehness will remove itself from my mind pretty soon and I can write something hilariously funny again!

Being a mom.............

Going with the whole mothers day hype I want to write a post on how hard it is to be a mother.


I think the word mother should be replaced with sacrifice. Because if there is one thing I have learned as a mom is that you need to make sacrifices. Some are bigger than others but none the less you will have to make sacrifices.

Some sacrifices can't be avoided - I mean your body WILL change and in some cases (like mine) it will never ever be the same again.

Some sacrifices are easy because your kids survival depend on them. Like giving up 8 hours of sleep a night. I can't even remember when was the last time I slept 8 hours straight in the past 3 years. But I can still function to an extent without suffice sleep.

Other sacrifices are hard. I am talking about the type of sacrifices that run deep. The type that no one knows about except you. The type that you can NEVER reveal because it will ruin everything that you have been losing sleep over.

As a mom putting your kids first comes natural. I can't do it any other way even if I wanted to. Is this wrong? Maybe? But my kids did not choose to come into this world, I did. And it is thus my responsibility to take care of them to the best of my ability and to put their needs in front of mine. ALWAYS. No questions asked.

I am sure there are other mothers out there that know exactly what I'm talking about. I won't lie. Being a mother is fucking hard. Like Briget said in on of her posts the other day - "There is no manual". So I can only do what I feel is best and to their benefit.

All I know is that I want to protect them with my whole life and that I will NEVER do anything to jeopardise their happiness.

So yes that is what me does - I sacrifice. Because waking up in the morning to big sloppy kisses and "Mommy I love you very much" is worth more than ANYTHING else in the world.

Happy mothersday to all you sacrificing ladies out there!

The Letter

I wanted to post a password protected post but Blogspot does not have such functionality, which is a total #brandfail in my opinion but anyway.

So..................................

Oh before I say anything else I just want to quickly make the following statement. When I started this new blog it was because I needed a place where I could be completely honest with myself and I know that limited people know about the address and have access to my innest, deepest, darkest secrets. But because I can't fucking password protect the damn thing I have to do the following:

If you want to read this post aka The Letter you need to e-mail me at natschutte@gmail.com requesting me to send you the post via e-mail, muff I know but that is the only way.


So........

In the past week I met up again with my ex (the last one before my husband). He is currently visiting SA as he has been staying in the UK the past 4/5 years. Even though I have dreamt of him quite often (as I do of every one that has meaning to me) I didn't realise how much unresolved issues/feelings etc there still were between us. So I have written him a letter. Not because I'm into old style letter sending or shit like that but just because like all of my fellow bloggers we just articulate better with the written language than the spoken one.

I will send you my letter if you promise to do the following:

1. DO NOT JUDGE - It was a difficult decision to make whether or not to "openly" write and post about it and the last thing I need is a bunch of hypocrites judging me.

2. KEEP IT TO YOURSELF - I know some things in relationships are better off not being said out loud so there is no need to wake sleeping dogs.

3. COMMENT - Ok so I also like it when people comment now and then :-)


Ok so you know what you gotta do!


P.s The Letter is in Afrikaans, because writing an English letter to a person I speak Afrikaans with is just well stupid. If you do not understand Afrikaans you can copy and paste the context into Google Translate. But beware there might be stuff up with some of the direct translation.

Words of Wisdom

As I mature................................

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

I've learned that you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that you better have a huge willy or big boobs!

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others, they are more screwed up than you think.

I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you were done.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are politicians or celebrities

I've learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades, and there had better be a lot of money to take its place.

I've learned that 99% of the time when something is not working in your house, one of your kids did it.

I've learned that the people you care most about in life, are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away


P.s I had a lot of shit going on the past 2 weeks - I promise to blog about it later!

Feelings



I don’t know what it is but I have been feeling pretty strange these past few days.


I feel like crying, screaming and throwing stuff all at the same time. It feels a lot like the hormonal rollercoaster ride during pregnancy. Which I am not (in case you were wondering)


I feel smothered, anxious and helpless


I feel loved yet unappreciated


I feel like I feel too much


I feel passionate about one thing and then completely dead about another


I feel nauseas, tired and sick


I feel numb on the inside


I feel like getting on a plane to nowhere and staying there for a while


I feel like stomping my feet and throwing a tantrum


I feel like something bad is about to happen and I can do NOTHING to prevent it


I feel irritated when people ask me why I feel irritated


I feel like dancing in the rain and then taking a hot bath


I feel confused, angry and confined


I feel alone in between a bunch of people


I feel like I have lost something……but I don’t know what


I feel like a failure……..most of the time




The worst part is…….


I feel like I have no reason to feel like this

I feel like this because......




1. My kids are sick............. again

2. I am sooooo sleep deprived

3. I think I am also getting sick

4. I fear for the safety of my family (this racists shit has got to stop!!!)

5. I feel guilty for not feeling perky all the time

PLEASE SEND HUGS AND MEDICINE THAT CAN MAKE KIDS BETTER IN NO TIME!
