It’s funny how when you’re in it, life seems to be chugging away as you go through your daily routines. You have a tendency to focus on the what you’re doing and what is up next, as opposed to the what you have accomplished.
It’s the first time in over a decade when I haven’t left the province or the country to go explore somewhere new. I can’t move about as easily and packing takes a bit longer these days so I’m sure that’s part of it, but it’s funny how your lifestyle can go from one extreme to the other.
I’ve also gone from remote working from home, cafés and other third spaces to commuting to an office space and doing the daycare run. There have also been added morning and evening events with my current contract which keep me on my toes and our family’s schedule up in the air but it’s been a good learning curve.
Once Baby #2 arrives, we’ll be getting them set up with their own Irish and Canadian passports and plan to do more travelling once we learn more about this kiddo and get over the newborn fog.
Lots of other goals on the list but none of them as top of a priority at the moment as enjoying family life, looking forward to spring’s arrival and more time spent outdoors!
This post is a small break during a whirlwind year and a pat on the back to remind ourselves of how far we’ve come, without actually having to go that far at all.
How have you spent the past year?
