Last Stand of 2009

december 26 2009

1. What did you think of 2009?

Hmmm, it was a very intensive year.
Also with lots of paradoxes.

Some children developed themselves a lot, whereas my autistic son and his father didn't show any development.

There was also the joy about going to england, and the enormous disappointment that it didn't happen.

This year I became more aware of age, and that the fact that I have the complete care for my autistic son is limiting me in almost everything.
I'm always at home, I have always take care of what I say and do, always be the director of how people behave here.
I'm ready to let go.

I've given up almost all my dreams, and that's depressing and shouldn't be.
More than ever I've realised that I'm ready to travel the world, if needed as a reporter, and I'm ready to meet new people. Have a life of my own.

2. What do you think was the news story of the year?

Obama president, followed by the way the republicans tried to undermine everything he planned.
And then ofcourse the recession.

Here in my country there was also a lot to do about a young girl wanting to sail the sees and childcare stepping in in such a way that even more than ever I felt we're just puppets on a string. As long as we do what's wnated from us people are nice or neutral, but when you want to be your own unique self.... oh me oh my!

3. What happened this year that you never want to hear another word about?

I'm not a person to push things aside.
Life is so full of daily stress that I forget what needs to be forgotten.

4. What was your favorite song of 2009?


5. What did you accomplish this year?

The councilwoman gave my son the chance not to go to school until he's 18 when he goes to the daycare facility.
I got my second son live in his own apartment.
And we've finally got a new vinyl floor downstairs.
It's nearly ready now. Just a few things and it's completely done. By me. And it looks good.

6. Did you learn anything new this year?

Yep, laying a vinyl floor. LOL!

I also learned a bit more not to take responsibility for the mistakes my kids make.
I've raised them very well, it's up to them to show what they've learned.

And I'm learning not to save nice things for better days.
Maybe I'm too old when those better days arrive and then I can't use those things anymore.

I've also spend some money just for me. Bought two nice bags without consulting anyone. I haven't earned anything sunstantial with my blogs this year. Just a few dollars and I used them just for me.

I'm sure I've learned a bit more, but I'm too tired at the moment.

7. What are you looking forward to in the new year?

I hope to find a way to make my autistic son accept that he needs to be able to live without me. When something happens to me he needs to be able to trust other people.

And England/Scotland is still on my mind.
I really want to move to Scotland, even when it means living in a tiny house in harsh nature. So I want to work on my plans.

And I want to spend a bit more time practicing smallpipes.

8. What are your plans for New Year's Eve?

Just being at home, celebrating old year in the traditional way and an hour after our change of years celebrating with the UK too, in honor of the warfriends of my father.

9. What's the best thing you ever did on a New Year's Eve?

Having my first child on my arm and wishing my dad a happy new year.
He would never witness another new year with another new baby.
