It’s November 30.
That means NaBloPoMo is over.
And I win.
I just realized my mug is empty. I need a refill. Talk amongst yourselves for a minute.
Oh the holidays are upon us and, with them, come family, decorations, sweets, so much food, gifts, cold weather and so much more. I guess I’m looking at the holidays differently this year because they’re Olivia’s first ones and I want them to be as special as they can be even though she’s too young to remember them. It’s all about imprint and sensation more at this point than forming actual memories.
I love that her first Christmas will be around the same tree that I grew up with. That makes me so happy beyond words. And I cannot [wait] to see her playing with wrapping paper and bows and the boxes her toys come in.
As you should.
The boxes are [way] more fun.
And, with the holidays comes the inevitable looking ahead to the new year.
Lots of changes on the horizon for this little family. Change is good. Change is desperately needed. We’ve hit a rut, a bump, a snag, a spinning carousel, treading water, what have you. And we need to change direction.
Some of it is motivated by desire. Some of it is motivated by need. Some of it is motivated by money.
I know I’ve been intentionally vague when I talk about any of this. It’s because most of it is just talk and ideas and “It would be nice if…” or “We can try to…by this time…” Nothing is “Yes we’re doing it now…”
But when it is, I’ll let you know.
And hopefully you’ll be happy for us. And not sad.
I’m getting a free distance Reiki session this week. I’m excited. And nervous. And intrigued. I hope it helps calm the tumult of stress, emotions and thoughts in my soul. That’s my goal – calm.
Even if it’s for a moment.
Stephen has begun meditation based on a holistic view that his parents use. It’s helping him deal with his own stress.
Which is, in turn, helping us out as parents and a couple and a family.
You know, I was going to write about something entirely different today and just ended up rambling. I hope that’s okay. Apparently my heart needed to say something else today.
