The start of a new year right now!
Thursday, December 20, 2018
I’ve just come out of my last class of 2018. Next year, I only work two weeks before April, so now is a time for new beginnings.
I’ve felt weighed down in the last few weeks by minor burdens, but right now, things are looking good. I lost my front door key for a few days and we only had one other – DH’s. His is probably too beaten up to copy as his hands are unsteady. We left the house this morning and our umbrellas were hanging outside the house. There were my keys, accidentally hooked to the top of one of the umbrellas! DH said, that’s a sign next year will be good, and maybe we’ll see our first grandchild. My son finishes his studies in April and he and DIL are thinking about it. I was surprised because DH is quite curmudgeonly about children, but I think it’s a pose. What surprised me more was how he can be so buoyant, with all his issues. Great!
As the minor stresses have gone away, my weight, right on cue, has bounced up again. I suppose I might as well do the opposite to what everyone else does, don’t you think? Anyway, there’s still a bit of space to go to my scream weight.
I have one resolution for this stretch of freedom starting now.
Get back to doing exercise other than lots of walking.
Oh no! One more. Get as much sleep as I possibly can. Not easy with a DH whose sleep patterns are all over the place, but a whole lot easier with no work.
The rest of my life starts now!
