I cannot believe that it is February already but boy am I glad that January is over.
January has been the longest month. I have been on the go since I walked into work on the 5 January and it just has not stopped. I am however grateful for the work so no complaining on that front.
For the first time in years, I have suffered the dreaded January syndrome – the one in which you overspend in December and count the days to pay day from 1 January already. I am usually very good at budgeting and never overspend so I am not quite certain what happened in December. I had a few unexpected expenses and I have also spoiled myself a bit.
Other than A starting school, my one furkid having an epileptic fit and the other one having to be rushed to the vet because she ate something she was not supposed and had a life -threatening infection, January was uneventful. Or should I say I was just too busy at work to have a life.
Work is good and I believe that great things are going to happen this year. I am also working towards a few things that will be great for me if it works out.
I have also not really posted anything on my blog this last month; not because I don’t have anything to say. I have so many things going on at the moment and so much to say but I just don’t have the inclination to actually sit and type it and when I do, I also don’t really know where to start. I also had so many ideas for posts that I just did not get around to. I could also blame it on being really busy so if I choose between posting on my blog and sleep, I am afraid that sleep wins every time. I also have not really had that bloggy feeling.
I have also not been keeping up to date with my favourite blogs and try to catch up here and there. I also see that a few of my favourite blogs are not popping up in my inbox and when they do, they seem to say the same thing; “they don’t really have that bloggy feeling at the moment.” I am going to make an effort this month to catch up with you and your blogs.
On the subject of sleep, I am not getting much sleep at the moment. My recurring dream is back after not having it for a few months and after I finally thought that I was over it. It seems to be back with a vengeance and I seem to be having it more often. I have had it about 4 times this year and it’s only February now. I am beginning to think that I must try and find someone who can tell me what it means. When I am not having this dream, I am dreaming other things all the time and it feels like I never rest. I would pay anything for an invention that can record my dreams.
I have some big plans for my home this year and some renovations. Within the next 2 years I plan to sell this house and buy a bigger house (more on that at a later stage).
This being the year of me, I have also decided to do something for myself every month; whether it is buying myself something I want (read: shopping, shopping and more shopping) or just going for a massage and even a weekend away.
I am going to put it out into the Universe that this is going to be a great year: My Year.
