Hit Song on by DOB

Thought this was an interesting thing that I never thought about. What was the Hit Song on the day you were born?

Apparently mine was Hold Me Close - I don't know it, but now I do.

Life Oh Life

Isn't there a song that goes like that - oh yes I found it. Nope I am not scared and superstitious. But the chorus's tone definitely summaries how I feel at the moment.
Sort of in Limbo - not exactly down but feeling a bit tired of schedule and routine.
Oh I am so in danger of slipping into bad habits again, I feel like I am at a critical point and if I just get a little energy in the right direction, this is so going to be a good turning point.

I have had a productive week. Setting up appointments, looking for information for various projects, planing and executing other projects cooking healthy meals, exercising, keeping contact with family and friends, doing homework with Jeandre, had a playdate and made a new friend. Completed reading two books!! Well the one I started the week before.
Friday I had a little dizzy episode (Meniere Disease) and my energy has been low ever since. Now I feel concentration and motivation waning as well but I so don't want to lose the positive momentum I have been building.

Plan for today: give Lily and Jeandre their third Bible study, cook, go for a walk (hopefully the weather holds) and make a to do list for this week. Got a job interview on Friday - its part-time , just 1hr a day - wish me good luck!

Where am I?

I have neglected my blog. For a few reasons. I have not felt sure if I should really share whats on in my mind. I have been ill and when I feel better I need to catch up stuff in the house and other projects.
Thought I would just write a short note to say that I am alive.
Had the exciting opportunity to visit Scotland. Now I have the frustrating task of finding a place to develop my disposable camera shots, then scan them in so I can share them.
Thinking of a number of things I would like to accomplish this year. each will take quite a lot of energy but I feel very optimistic about achieving success once I put my mind to them.
