What, 42 already?

Yes, that's me today. Somehow the past year just slipped by in a haze.I am feeling a bit blah and tired, really work wise this year has been a bummer. I am struggling to get the cheer together to celebrate. That being said, I have already celebrated yesterday and it will continue today.

As I have up to today not had a chance to think about a wish list, I have been giving it a bit of though last night and this morning. So, for my next year I wish for:
  • Good health for me and the rest of our family.
  • Happy normal children that actually sleep through the night
  • A great new and stimulating job for my sweet DH. He deserves it.
  • A good year for the business. Times are tough in the building industry.
  • A new creative hobby - actually I think I have found it. Mosaik. So let's hope it works out the way I want it to.
  • Less stress. Just less stress, mostly at work. But just juggling those balls too.
  • Friendship and love. I have not blogged about it yet, because I am finding it terribly hard to even think about it, but my BFF is moving to Australia next year. With my other BFF in Canada for the last 5 years, I am feeling pretty low about friendship.
  • More time to relax as a family. I truly believe that as the kids get older these times get better and better. We are already planning a weekend camping in March in the Pilansberg with S,I and their kids.
  • More time for me and Hunter together. We need it. And I love it.
  • A more tidy and organized home - I need to seriously declutter and assign places for things. I know that I need to make this happen - so I wish for the energy and time to do this. And my family to at least try and keep to it.
  • A year of keeping the dark wolf away from my door without chemical interference. I can feel him knocking at the moment, as it happens at times when I am tired and stressed.
  • And most of all, a year filled with love, laughter and fun.
And to you my friends in the computer, thank you for your love and support.
