Yes I know I’m a bit late. But still I wanted to wish you a very happy new year. I hope all of you have a great year ahead, stay healthy and as happy as they can be.
Things here are a little less stressful by now. Which is good. Christmas break didn’t really make a big difference, first there was Christmas, and then there were all those meetings with relatives, and then we had house guests for three days for rehearsals for my husband’s band project which was fun but very exhausting, and then there were only a few days, and now school has started again.
In an attempt to make life less stressful we moved our son’s birthday party to next Saturday. Which made the week before Christmas a little less hectic but also will make next weekend a little busier than I’d like.
My insomnia continued until about a week ago. When I decided that not getting enough sleep for a while won’t kill me, and that I’d just stay in bed and relax as best I can, and to believe in my ability to go back to sleep, and so I’ve been getting almost enough sleep for the past five days or so. I’m really looking forward to being rested again.
Of course the sleep deprivation then made me depressed, as it does, which ended in me thinking that nothing makes sense, that nobody likes me, that nobody wants to read my blog, or listen to my podcast, and that the current novel I’m writing is really stupid and boring.
And there is only one answer to that, isn’t there?
So I’m back to writing, back to blogging, and I really hope to get another podcast episode recorded soon. Not this weekend, though, because I need to organize a birthday party, and then I need to sew myself a dress to wear to yet another birthday party the week after.
So I raise my glass to you, and the next year. I’m really curious what it will bring for all of us.
