Well folks, here we are, the last post of 2012.
This year has been a well balanced year. It’s had its ups and had its downs. There have been moments of extreme stress and frustration and moments of complete and utter happiness. Frustration has abounded, but so has satisfaction. All in all, well balanced. Not like 2011, that year was just awful!
2013? Well I am looking forward to it. I have a good feeling about it. I feel that this year will bring some good changes with it for me and my family. Happy thoughts!
Maybe all this has come because I have spent the last four days at home. Relaxing. Well not really. We had no real plans per se and so I finally started tackling that long long list of things that I have been putting aside for weeks and months in the hopes of “finding time”. I have finally managed to get the laundry pile down to a reasonable level and ironed hubby’s shirts. There was quite the stack I tell you (I actually find ironing relaxing and enjoyable. I know I’m odd). I also allowed myself to dedicate a full 2 hours yesterday to cleaning a corner of the spare room. And it took so long because there is so much junk in that room that has been accumulating over the years, that it was (and still is) in need of some serious purging! How on earth can two people and two cats accumulate so much crap? Really!?
I finally put up a bunch of pictures i have been wanting to and I cooked proper meals. Heck I even found time to exercise on my Wii Fit and read a good book. I cuddles with my hubby and planned my next balcony garden. And also went through the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy in preparation for The Hobbit. I’ve hung out with friends and even processed some pictures. In four stress-free days. I look around and feel I have finally accomplished something. It really is incredible how purging a lot of junk can make you look around and feel satisfied. Little things, big accomplishments. For me anyway.
You know, I might seriously give some thought to turning into a housewife…well, the housewife that works at home, because we could never afford that. But seriously, how nice is it not to have to go anywhere or worry about a hundred thousand things?!
As I said 2013 year of unexpected changes….as the lottery commercials use to say….You never know!
Happy New Year everyone!
