I’ve never really been one for new year’s resolutions. I did however look back on 2013, the year that ended in somewhat a rubbish manner, and it gave me the opportunity to look forward to 2014.
Even on the 2nd day of the year, it is shaping up to be an amazing, busy – but fabulous year. The year started with great friends and a little too much champagne, the only way to start any year!
So what does 2014 hold? Uni remains a factor, just one semester after the next, one foot after the other. I probably should do something about selecting a major sometime in the not too distant future.
The Vegemite Wife and husband are returning to Oz this side of Easter, and I’m looking forward to catching up with them in the big smoke should the planets align.
The job takes me away again, this time in about three weeks or so. This year we’re lucky enough to be taking a family holiday and heading overseas with the little humans, both of whom are excited to be meeting up with some of our close friends throughout the trip. The Devil and I are also particularly happy to share this holiday with these friends, dare I say there will be plenty of vino consumed.
The little blue human enters his last year in primary school, how did this happen? He has become such an amazing young man. The little pink human grows and changes daily, it is so hard to keep up with her! Both adorable as ever and I’m incredibly proud to their mum. The Devil continues to be a doting dad and such a supportive husband (how else would I be able to study and travel and exercise like I do without him?).
2014 is also the year I think I’m going to quit sugar. Whoa! I hear you say? Not all sugar, just the sneaky, really yummy added to food type of sugar. I say “I think I’m going to quit”, as one thing I’ve learnt over the last few years is to give things a go and see how they pan out. For those that have kept up with this blog, you’d be familiar with my uninvited friend, Hashimoto’s. Sarah Wilson also has it, and this is why she gave up the white stuff. No doubt you are likely to read here how I’m going with it. I’m keen to see if it will just make me feel better, sleep better and think better. I’ll keep you posted.
And, the Pain Master remains a factor in my life. A big congratulations to her for getting accepted into post-grad Paramedics course. She did frighten the life out of me, I thought it meant she would be leaving me, but alas, no. She is staying put and is keen to continue inflicting punishment on my body. Something about early morning runs…? Bring. It. On.
So, wishing you many laughs, much love and happiness this year. Throw in the occasional bottle of bubbles and all should be fabulous!
