Yesterday whilst out with my family, spotted this in the sky and felt compelled to take a photo..
2009 has been a bit of a change for me on a personal level. I'm on hiatus from working - and I love what I do when I'm working - I'm one of those lucky people. I also love my children dearly but after having gone back last year and love being back and using my brain, my skills and having a bit more personal and financial freedom only to go back in reverse has been a bit of a shock to the system. It's not doom and gloom though! The market is too unpredictable and my childcare costs are just crazy for this kind of market...
But this year is my last year with my three girls at home, and with all this adjustment, now, in August I'm starting to savour it. Love it even.
Healthwise 2009 has been really good - not that I'm usually a 'sickie' but last year I was still recovering emotionally (and physically) from my hysterectomy. My recovery is ongoing mentally, but I'm in a much better place.
Relationship-wise me and hubby are solid, although we really do need some time alone. Time to reconnect. I really want to work on this.
So all-in-all the reportcard so far for 2009 is great... and although 2008 was pretty good in other ways when I think back since 2006 our VERY tough year (with an 18 month old and newborn twins), 2007 healthwise sucked, 2008 improved and 2009 changes but positive - it's great to appreciate that we've made it through some tough times - there are many good times ahead.
If you had a 2009 half-year reportcard - what would it say?
