I have spent the last few days sick with the flu and pretty miserable. There’s nothing worse than having time off and feeling too weak to enjoy it! I’ve tried to remain in good spirits as my husband went out and spent time with our friends. It was the holidays after all. Overall, I’ve been pretty grumpy and generally annoyed. I did discover that I can stream cable to my iPhone and kindle which made laying in bed a little more comfortable (my husband accidentally broke my glasses making it impossible for me to see the TV in the “far” distance).
But this is going to be a happy blog post! 2015 will be a great year, right?! In the last two weeks, I have become aware of some of the “battles” I have in store. My son’s school sent us home a notice that they think he should get an evaluation for speech delays. He’s been in speech therapy before, but I thought he was progressing along nicely. I have noticed that sometimes he talks like he’s on one of the kids shows he watches “Where are we going next, Mom?” The same week, I received my daughters reading and writing evaluation. Like I have suspected since she was in kindergarten, she was diagnosed with mild dyslexia. She also has moderate dysgraphia, a writing disorder. The place that tested her recommended $110 a week tutoring! Not doing that but I do need to get her some help. The tricky part is that she’s doing pretty well in school so that her teachers don’t really feel she’s got any issues. How could a student that’s getting A’s in writing have a disorder, right? So yeah, there’s that.
Happy post…must write a happy post. I reviewed my goals for 2014 and realized I didn’t accomplish most of what I set out to do! Its been hard to motivate myself to create resolutions for 2015 since this year didn’t turn as planned. BUT, I would say 2014 was a good year. I started working part-time at a job I love (although the grant might not get renewed next year) and I celebrated 10 years of marriage with my glass-breaking, desert me on the holidays husband in Puerto Rico. I have enjoyed the simple things like picking up my kids from school (not aftercare) and going on field trips with the kids when normally I would have to work. Actually even though I failed at most of my goals, I would say that 2014 was a great year!
So here’s to another wonderful year of failed goals!
