Awake to a world of possibility
Today I run the last official "event" for work for 2012. After today all the stressful bits are over, at least for a couple of months. After the event finishes tonight, I can officially breath a sigh of relief and think "wow! somehow I did all that!".
Because now I am becoming awake to a whole new world of possibilities. There is change in the air for this house. And I think all of it good.
Next year Miss 4 goes off to "Big School". She is mostly excited about this. Today she is doing a fashion parade at kindy to show off her uniform. All the children get to do this. It is an amazing place, the kindy she goes to, and the fashion parade is all part of getting them ready and excited about the transition from kindy to school. How awesome is that.
Next year also means I will have an empty nest. Yes, both my "babies" will be at school. That leaves me with TWO WHOLE DAYS at home. Just me. What to do, what to do, what to do???
I know they will fill up quickly with housework, shopping, school involvement etc but I am grateful I have the opportunity to do this. I love being involved in the lives of my children and seeing the pride and happiness it brings to their faces. Just love it.
Next year we are also talking about putting an extension on the top of our house. We started looking around to buy, but the truth is we both love our deck and back yard, and we are not sure we can replace this. So the idea of an extension was born. Again, another possibility.
So right now, I feel in a pretty good place. My husband is healthy again and back at work part time. Both my children are happy at school/kindy. I mostly like my job.
So, here is to the next phase, which seems full of possibilities.
