What is motherhood if not a quest into the unknown? It feels like I’ve been waiting for this my entire life and yet I have no notion of what’s in store for me. I only know that dreams become smaller and little joys bigger.
Hi, how are y’all? Thank you for hanging in there with me, I´ve been pretty emotional on the blog lately, haven´t I? I can´t wait for the day when I´ll feel up to writing about pretty dresses and pretty shoes again, I tell ya! I´m not there yet, though. 😉 It´s still a bumpy road here, although most days are good now and not the other way around.
I´m not defining myself through love,
I know I´m enough on my own
I only wish I could forward this affection
Towards my neglected self
Instead of everyone else.
I´m so tired, oh so tired
Won´t you hold me for a while
Don´t say a word,
Just let me have a sigh on your shoulder
The silent kind,
The one that doesn´t change a thing,
But leaves you hollow.
It´s time for a light entry, I´m starting to get fed-up of my moody blues, so I can only imagine how it is for you. 😉
I managed to buy a couple of Christmas presents at last and ate some of them already. Oops! I´ll be sure to replace them on Monday, though- haha! This year it´s back to basics, food and culture. It´s practically impossible to gift anything in Norway, people have everything and we´re growing so particular that we sometimes get offended by the wrong present. (at least I do 😉 ) haha! Crazy!
To myself I have a brand new me as a gift, ribbon-wrapped and cherry on top- haha!
I feel very chatty today, I hope you don´t mind. In fact, I´m a very chatty person any day of the week! And since I take myself very seriously, God forbid the world should miss on anything that has to do with ME!;-)
As an interpreter, I mostly communicate other people´s thoughts and ideas and I´m always on the run. I don´t have an office, nor any steady colleagues. I just rush from one place to another, waving and smiling and trying to keep up with my tight schedule. Or the lack of it. And that in a world where most people work from 8-4. So I don´t get to talk as much as I´d like to, you see.
How are things with you? Did January live up to your expectations? My January has been nice and easy. I had a couple of things in mind, New Year´s resolutions and such, and I feel I´m slowly getting there. It´s nice to be given a new chance each year and even nicer to be able to cut yourself some slack every once in a while.
This year I was going to eat better, work out more, spend less, travel farther, be nicer and work fewer hours. In the health department, I get a case of organic fruit and vegetables delivered to my door once a week and it makes cooking much more simple and fun! I have to admit it´s a big improvement, although we´re constantly battling with all the apples and the kiwis, or whatever fruit that doesn´t really cut it for us.
I also started swimming, for now I´ve only been there once, but the plan is to do it once a week. I´m having a hard time getting out of the house with all this snow and winter, but I do my best. And my best will have to do this year.
Travelwise, I´m going home to Romania for a week in February and taking a 10 days´ holiday in Serbia in June. I´m not sure if I get to see NY this year, but it´ll be there next year, too. I´m trying not to rush things, but I´m not any good at that. I search for houses even though we´re not moving, for apartments in France, although we don´t have a house, and so on.. I have a father who measures success in real estate, so it´s hard to keep up.
But since today is Chinese New Year, I wish you a happy one! I´m so glad I can start anew again in February!;-)
