Yes I haven’t been blogging. Too much social media, so I got lazy.
Just to catch up. K is now in standard 1. the Js are in Standard 4. Finally all are in the same location. It sure saves on petrol LOL
D and I are now full time on the business and working from home. Its definitely a roller coaster ride, especially financially. It still feels like the right thing, although some days its harder to find that reason. Its also been a learning experience, not only managing our time, business and relationships with each other, kids and those around us.
Projects for 2012 (personal) (in no particular order):
Decluttering the upstairs (its going to take some time haha).
Learn to do more things on our own (together) from cleaning (bleurgh), to ironing to gardening, to food/cooking. Need to reduce our dependency (or mine hehe) on a regular cleaner, save for major spring cleaning. This can be part of a learning experience too
Allow the Js to cook under supervision. (eep!)
Exercise to be a part of daily routine.
Teach boys how to cycle without training wheels. (yes, we are late)
Begin Js lessons on managing money.
Help K learn to work though his emotions and control his temper.
Work on our daily routine, especially education-wise and look for alternatives to the govt school system (dont get me started there lol)
Learn to say no to more projects, committees etc
Join a public library.
Join Pusat Sains Negara.
Be more green, use less plastic bags for our frozen food storage and so on. Sort out our rubbish. Recyle/Re-use/refurbish more
These are the projects based on present circumstances. Some will be easier than others, but need to be done nonetheless. There will be days I will falter, for sure, but I think it’s manageable, together The hardest is the improving our budget I think. Gotta keep the faith!
I havent included blogging more. although I should
Happy new year everyone! May 2012 be a good, healthy year for us all
