It’s been over a year since I posted here, which is totally ridiculous. One of my resolutions for 2010 is to show up here regularly, and empty my brain into the universe.
2009 was good for us, in many ways. Work became pretty steady toward the end of the year for both Scott and I. I watched Caroline and Andy both make some strides in adulthood, being deliberate with good decisions, and fixing bad decisions responsibly. Charlie, after years of lobbying, returned to traditional school, over my objections. He’s taken that in much the same way he takes everything, intentionally, and looking at it through a microscope as it goes. He’s done incredibly well with it, so far, is very involved, says he sees what it’s like now, and is weighing whether he wants to continue with traditional school next year, or go back to TNS. What I know now is, whatever he decides, I’ll defer to his judgment, because it is solid and good.
On the flip side, 2009 has been a really bad one for a lot of people that I love. People have lost children, parents, spouses.
All in all, the year was a really mixed bag.
I’m trying to step into 2010 with intention. One might say, resolution. My main declaration is that I’m going to start taking care of my health this year. I’m a little too young to feel so old. This means doctors appointments, dietary changes, and kicking my butt to go to the gym. It also means giving up smoking.
So, you know, where 2009 was by and large positive for me and mine, 2010 is likely to start with me grumpy.
On the mental health front, I’ll be posting more.
