All good things...

Skip is back to work today. The Christmas tree will come down today. The daily grind will return. It's official – the holidays are over. Sigh.

It has been the most blissful week. We relaxed, spent a lot of family time together, ate a lot of food, went to the beach, caught up with friends, went to the park, read books. The week between Christmas and New Year is my favourite week of the year. Most people are on holidays, everyone is relaxed. It feels like a real bonus week. We rarely go away as we really enjoy spending the week hanging around home and Sydney.

Any way, that's all comes to an end today. The clouds have rolled in, it feels quite chilly and my mood fits.

Up until now, I haven't really thought too much about the year ahead, but now that life is returning to normal and the pace will pick up again, it's time to ponder 2011.

There are going to be a few challenges in the next month or so, the week of relaxing was really needed to prepare for this. I don't really feel like I'm starting the new year fresh, more like I'm at the bottom of really steep hill that needs to be climbed before the cruising starts. 2011 is going to be the year of big change I feel. I suspect the year will end with us all in a very different place than which it began.

For me, the most immediate challenges are changing the way we handle our finances, Goosey's sleep apnoea being treated and Lil-lil starting preschool. There are a million other things running through my mind too. So there's 2011 off and running!
