Unsure of picture source, I made the poster for the kids room, probably google images...

It's become a bit of a joke that I'm out to save the world.
One of my close friends, her partner and mates have started to refer to me as Mother Theresa.
Honestly, I don't like it.
Not even the slightest bit.
I don't like being compared to a saint, and not someone so amazing and such a women of God as her. And I don't like the image of being a save the world crusader.
Is that wrong?
Should I be embracing this?
Do you know what God's will is for your life? I believe it's quite simple.
To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
To love your neighbour as yourself.
And to look after the widows, orphans and those in need.
Those in need... Those lacking.
Those lacking in companionship
Those lacking in conversation
Those lacking in friendship
Those lacking in food and drink
Those lacking in shelter
Those lacking in nappies, formula & bottles
Those lacking in love
Those lacking in self esteem
Those lacking in family
Those lacking in a listening ear
The list is never ending.
My all time favourite quote is...
"I am only one, but still I am one.
I can not do everything, but still I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do"
~ Helen Keller.
There are a LOT of people out there lacking in physical and emotional and spiritual essentials to life.
Don't look at the large, gigantic, terrifyingly huge percentage of the population this encompasses.
Instead look at the one.
I am only one.
I can do something.
I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
That's all I'm doing.
The something I can do

Mr Frog, he didn't listen to my polite request.
He instead has given me the GREATEST incentive to wash my dishes before leaving the house no matter what. This could be seen as a good sign, because I have no other incentive and am lazy.
Tonight I come home and he is enjoying a relaxing chill out in the dirty, chocolate icecream water in my bowl. That's so gross!! I'm disinfecting that bowl in the morning.

Dear Mr. Frog
I do enjoy your company. Yes, I do.
I enjoy seeing you sleeping on the blinds during the day.
But I must tell you, I am rather getting sick of finding your poop on the kitchen window sill.
I also do not appreciate you taking over my kitchen sink when I am home.
Cooking and doing dishes may not occur daily, but I would like the chance to do them still the same.
In the future, please try and refrain yourself from taking over my kitchen till I am in bed.

Having such a fun week with the kids at the homeless shelter.
Playdough was a winner on Friday.
One creative girl was so proud of this one
And today the masks were the greatest hit ever!!
Had to share some of their awesome work with everyone.
Can't forget, they ALL helped clean up the room afterwards.
Sweeping, picking up every last sequin. Little Champions!!
I'm just ignoring the fact chocolate was in the equation...

It's my little sisters 14th Birthday today :)
She is so excited. And Funny!!! Of course I was so much more mature at 14.. haha
She wrote a lovely status on her facebook page... "thanks for all the birthday wishes :D im 14!!! scary i thouught id be an aunty by now *hint hint* :D"
Discovered still too sick for laughing, caused a massive coughing fit.
Apparently the poor girl will be waiting a long time yet.
I read a lovely little article in the paper today with the top sexiest professions.
Nurses/doctors are up there at number one.
I'm in the 2nd least sexiest jobs.
And considering number one is unemployment, which isn't a job, it by default bumps me into the least sexiest job as decided by 9000 Australians.
Hannah, my dear sister. I think you will have to work on our other sisters to make you an Aunty before your next birthday, looks like I'll be getting a cat soon... 9000 people can't be wrong.
Ha ha! I just glanced at the next 3 least sexiest jobs (I didn't read further before, I was to busy daydreaming of what I should name my cat...) and I can't believe I'm ranked less sexier than retirees!!
1. Unemployment (as mentioned, not a job, thus we ignore)
2. (1). Volunteer/charity/community work
3. (2). Retired
4. (3). Transport/logistics/warehousing
5. (4). Consulting
Alas I'm allergic to cats!!
So I'm sorry dear people of Cairns and Kowanyama I can no longer volunteer in your communities, it just doesn't make me look sexy!
And Youth Work, I should give up on starting that certificate, should not think about helping the next generation on their walk and better start looking at enrolling into a Medical Degree.
Bummer I thought I had it all worked out.
Hmmm.. maybe I can get hairless cats..... no that's too gross.
oh n i am totally not saying sister who will make Hannah an Aunty is unsexy, just not in an unsexy occupation.

My laptop died and for some odd odd reason, tonight it is turned on. Don't know how it did it, the power button won't work for me when I push it, but oddly it is on.
I will not complain!!
I've missed blogging and reading other blogs SO MUCH. It's almost sad how much.
And to top it off I was sick in bed (couch) all week and with no television reception or laptop it really made it seem worse.
So now I'm quickly typing this before I crash for the night and start my crazy hectic day again tomorrow... really can't wonder why I'm sick... "are you making sure you have time to look after yourself?" is a question I try to dodge my way around.
Fingers crossed laptop stays working now. But considering it gave no warning to crashing, and hasn't turned on for weeks, I'm not going to hold my breath.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow all you mums out there :D
And the photo is a bit totally random. But I felt like adding one, and it is an abandoned old canecutters cottage that is falling apart and I had heaps of fun exploring (when I wasn't terrified, frozen still n thinking of snakes!).
