Reflections on a year gone

2010 – A year of finally getting some health issues nailed down for myself and getting my eldest an official diagnosis for his Aspergers.

Knowing what has been going on with my health has helped me to let go of a good load of 6 years of mummy guilt of not being able to be all I wanted to be for my kids. And knowing my eldest son’s diagnosis has helped a lot with knowing how to teach him and not being so frustrated by his learning delays.

This year has been a slow release of the old and deciding what will be the new. In 2011 I look forward to continuing this process. I am quite looking forward to this year as I approach the big 40.

I spent too much time on the computer this last year (and probably for many years previously). I have a laptop and I have decided to pack it away under my desk inside a bag during the week. I did this for a week in December and it worked well. I only brought it out at night and even then I didn’t turn it on every night. I print out our school work from HST+ and then use it in a binder in a similar manner to Sonlight’s IG.

I need to lose some weight this year. I have gained 20kg over the last 13 months and I am not happy about it.

I will also be working more on getting routines going in my home so that when my over reactive sinuses act up due to allergies I have a framework to follow.  I have already done some work on creating routine cards for each of my kids and myself.  Will post more on that later.

And I am going to be trying out some ideas for bringing a little extra income into my household. Don’t know how that will go but need to at least try.

So 2010 wasn't too bad and I am definitely looking forward to 2011 and beyond.

Best wishes
Jen
