End of Year Review 2012

Well Seasons Greetings all.  May you and yours be safe and well.

This year had been a bit of a dark one but for me the light at the end of the tunnel is that there is a new year starting in a couple of days. 

Ry has come home from University for the Christmas holidays and I have finally moved of the nebuliser every two hours.  I have moved through to four hourly and now to six hourly.  Still have the classic smokers cough even though I have never smoked a day in my life.  

Life has to get better and I keep holding onto that thought.  Given how I have been bitten so many times by this and that in the last couple of years I have decided that 2013 will be the year of micro baby steps.  If I can move a centimetre or a quarter of an inch I will be ecstatic about any achievement.

The goal for next year is to be standing, able to walk ten meters and to be compus menus long enough to cope with returning to university next September.  That gives me nine months to get out my current permanent residence the day bed.

Craft wise I am also taking micro baby steps to finish at least one project and then go from there.  I have so many things on the needles that I just haven't finished. I think if I can work the different project bags down to a manageable size I will start to feel better.   There will be some projects I know I will have to frog as I will not have a hope or a prayer of working out where I am up to or have lost the instructions.  Somethings you can't work out if you lose the resurrection sheet.  There is just no coming back to it if the project sheet is lost.

Next year I will have no trouble going on a cold sheepie or doing a stash down as the only time I ever leave the house now at all seems to be for medical appointments.  2012 will always be remembered as the year I was medically retired but now for 2013 I hope to find a new life were I find ways to enjoy old passions like knitting, spinning and other creative endeavours again.  

Best wishes for all and may you have a great 2013.
