kate5kiwis: A Leeriness Runty Woo


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

A Leeriness Runty Woo


i completely forgot about new year's resolutions.

probably cos we've already planned our entire year and my brain is full even contemplating the change that’s about to zap us in the butt. and the potential fallout. or not. of course i’m positiving (yep, another adjective-turned-verb) it out loud to the kiddos, but am secretly still head tripping.

and actually? i feel a bit goldfish-bowl-y at the mo. blogs are weird. as much as i absolutely adore the friendships made here – and the sharing of the love, i feel like this is an incredibly public place to keep spilling my guts. nah, i’m not shutting up shop, but really? this blogging mojo started out nearly three years ago as a photo album and a way to journal our beautiful family’s unschooling life and now the mojo is feeling a bit wobbly cos peeps are about to go our separate ways and really? how many cookie-making-mornings can a mummy blog? especially when her bubbas are at school. maybe i’ll become a secret agent with a periscope camera and sneak up at the classroom window? maybe we’ll all breathe a sigh of relief that katie isn’t poking a camera in our face 24/7?

anyway, as i’ve zoomed once or twice around the blogosphere this year, those reso’s have been popping up. and i really feel as though i’ve done the food overhaul and the body overhaul and the house overhaul (uh, that one needs doing again) and i’m about to do the brain overhaul - so what’s left? any ideas?

(oh, and in case you're still wondering, "a leeriness runty woo" is one of 55557 possible anagrams of “new year’s resolution”. strange but true.)

Hi Katie -- Can you do a want list instead of a resolution? Your hopes and dreams for the coming year? Everything you're excited about without the insecurity and trepidation we all feel when we're on the brink of Big Changes? Just the Good Stuff. An outline of good it WILL all be. :)

Just keep it real, as they say. What may be mundane and over familiar to you is actually really interesting and exciting to us, your readers! ;-)

Here's what we're doing... inspired in big part by the 15 buck book... we've come up with about 50 things we want to do... inspired even before that by BD's list on the fridge... or changes we want to make... and we put them all in a jar and we're going to pull out one a week and try to do it. In there is a week of vegetarian meals, will let you know how we do with that one! Home safe and sound tonight, a little sad The Incredible Journey is over. xxx

Oooh, I loved "leeriness runty woo!" That was too cute. It is not a requirement to do resolutions though. You can always make little personal goals for yourself during the year.

I think anytime there is something you feel like blogging about, you will always find someone who is willing to read it! LOL.

I love the food overhaul, body overhaul, house overhaul, brain overhaul! That is great girl...not sure what else you can overhaul, but for me, I am having a perspective overhaul - my resolution is "dont think, just flow" I am looking for my old mojo called instinct. While we were camping I found my natural rhythm again, the time to eat, sleep, talk, walk, run, play, stay, go, all came naturally, without thinking, I just "knew" when to do things... that is my goal this year, back to trusting my instinct, rhythm and intuition. (Hey Ang, get your own blog post, this isnt the forum for all of your deep thoughts!!!)
