I love you.
January also marks 'back to school' for all of us. This year Joshua begins year 10 and Jillian enters year 5. Joshua is currently wearing size 12 shoes and 34 inch waisted shorts. He weights 73kgs and consumes this much weight in food with a daily regularity. Jillian is a slight 32kgs and her favourite foods are still gherkins, olives and watermelon, not that she would say no to lollies or chocolate either. As time has passed the differences in lifestyle habits between you two continue to increase. While you both love the outdoors and playing sport, down time is better spent with Joshua in front of the computer, TV or ipod while Jillian can be found escaping to some far away land as a pirate, castaway, rockstar, wizard or all of the above. Joshua can't go past a steak and chips while Jillian prefers Salmon and rice.
In January I learnt alot about metaphors. I learnt that there is no easy way to get out of a waterslide tube (literally and metaphorically) and I learnt that to get struck by lightning you have to go out in the rain.
In January I spent more time with my family and friends at the movies, markets, scrapbooking and hanging out. I missed that last year.
In January, QLD was devastated by floods. We lit some candles and said a prayer. We are grateful.
In January I committed to a better year, month, by month.
