For those who know me really well, it's no big surprise when I say I have trouble making decisions. Which is one of the reasons I've never done the New Year's resolutions thing. I have trouble committing to just a few things I want to change. I'd end up with a list that is a mile long and then get distracted by the length of it and just give up. Which is funny given that I get such satisfaction from crossing things off a list. I admit that I'm the kind of person that adds something to a list after I've done it, just so I can cross it off.
So when some of my blogging friends started talking about their word of the year, I thought it was such a good idea. A word of the year encompasses so much without the big long list and frees one up from the pressures of completing said list. I'd like to say that it's take me this long to get my word up because I wanted to pick just the right word, but in reality (again), I had trouble settling on my word.
I finally did and I think it's the perfect word for me to focus on this year. My word for 2013 is breathe.
You see, I have a LOT of changes coming up this year. It's time again this summer, to move. Ironically, you'd think this would be a piece of cake given the number of times we've moved in the last 6 years. On the outside I seen calm, cool, and collected about each pack out, but I start worrying (months and months in advance) about all the little details. This move will come with more "details" than ever since we're heading back to the United States (Yippeee!). This time around we've the added pressure of selling the house we've been renting out and buying a new house that's big enough to fit the 2 extra children we're returning with. Not so much in itself but there's the complication that it needs to be done before the oldest starts school so we don't have to move him mid-year. Then there are preschools to find, friends to make, and another huge change that I'm not quite ready to discuss. And NO it is not a pregnancy!
