About a week late, but since we have been visiting family and friends in the Netherlands for the first week of January, it feels like this is my real first week of the new year. Today all three of us had to go back to normal life (work or daycare), and although I don´t really do resolutions, I do like the concept of picking a word of focus for 2017 and some goal planning.
After not feeling good for almost two weeks, I realized on Monday that I had been living on aspirins all that time to deal with my cold and my headache so I decided I had to go to the doctors. And, of course, I should have done this much earlier because with the medicine he gave me I felt SO much better within a day. So I am finally starting to recuperate from the huge cold that I caught, just in time for Christmas.
I can´t believe 2016 is almost over. CRAZY how fast times goes by! Time to reflect on the last year with a roundup of my favorite posts here on Working Mommy Abroad.
Finally… Friday. Seriously, I don´t think I ever needed it more. I have been having a huge cold for the last 10 days and my head is just exploding at the end of each day because it´s so full of snot. (Too much info, sorry) Having the bichin having some weird nights doesn´t help either, he falls asleep really easily (I am still in a complete amazement stage over how easy our new going to bed ritual is) but due to teething wakes up several times a night. Doesn´t really help to get rid of a cold!
This week has been quite a weird week in terms of schedule since Tuesday and Thursday were bank holidays in Spain. So it was an interval of work, day off, work, day off, work and now almost weekend. Quite disorientating because every working day felt like a Friday and the next day then felt like Sunday eve and this 3x in a row. Well, I am not complaining.
