2022 Phrase Of The 12 months
Joyful new yr!!!
I’ve been selecting a phrase of the yr since 2016!
So much has modified over the previous six years. I began over in lots of methods: a model new relationship and went again to life with a child when Birch was born. The pandemic has felt like going again to start out within the recreation of Sorry (or perhaps the longest chute in Chutes + Ladders. Whomp whomp.) So much has modified throughout these years, and my focus has flowed with that.
Previous phrases of the yr:

Right here’s the temper board:
And right here’s how I’m pondering recent within the completely different areas of life:
Birch is smack in the midst of the transition stage from toddler to child. He’s 90% potty skilled, doesn’t essentially want a excessive chair, is sort of prepared for an enormous boy mattress, and is dropping his nap (<– not enthusiastic about that one!). I do know from expertise that every one of those adjustments result in extra adventures on the horizon.
From day journeys to household ski days this winter to a attainable flight someplace heat, I really feel like our household is able to make some recent reminiscences. Ever since Birch realized to speak, his relationship with Mazen has actually blossomed. And regardless of their age hole, they really feel nearer in years than ever earlier than.
Recent….Credit score Playing cards!
A part of the rationale journey is on the thoughts is as a result of Thomas and I found journey rewards final yr. I’ve all the time been actually accountable with my bank cards – even to a fault – as a result of I used the identical one for like 20 years that solely received 1% again. That’s it. If you realize something about bank card factors, you realize what a wasted alternative price that was! Via a number of the monetary podcasts I take heed to, I realized about journey rewards playing cards and the way the sport works. (In case you have no concept what I’m speaking about, ChooseFI has a journey rewards 101 course you’ll be able to take.)
We began with the Chase Sapphire Playing cards. In the event you don’t have that card, you want it – it’s the perfect of the perfect.

Recent New Home?
Additionally on the recent & new theme is considering our home. Thomas and I debate weekly if we should always keep right here without end till the youngsters are grown, if we should always renovate this home, or if we should always construct/renovate one other home. We love a lot about this home (superior location, nice neighbors, the porch + view, the house), however the home as it’s now shouldn’t be what we might select have been we to start out from scratch.
The issue is there is no such thing as a land left within the metropolis, I don’t need to reside far out within the nation, and the actual property market is sizzling, so shopping for a fixer is dear. So we simply sit in limbo questioning what to do. There may be additionally the query of the logistics of a reno/construct when it comes to financing and possibly having to maneuver till a rental whereas the home we’re renovating is full.
Since we love our location a lot, now we have a gathering with an architect to see what we may do to this home to actually make it our personal. A lot of the adjustments can be in our important dwelling areas and bettering “the envelope” with new home windows and insulation (our important flooring has zero insulation!) We must transfer out for some time although, so this is able to be main. And we wouldn’t begin till spring 2023 if we determine to maneuver ahead.
Refreshing Well being
The analogy that involves thoughts for my well being and self care is that of a tunnel water slide. Popping out of being pregnant and the primary yr is tunnel imaginative and prescient – you simply gasoline your physique and survive. After which I got here out of that and was plunged into this pandemic that introduced new stressors on us all. I really feel a bit like I’ve misplaced all of my mindfulness and am able to get again to a spot the place I’m placing extra effort into my well being. The easiest way for me to refresh my routine is to encompass myself with inspiration, so I’m going so as to add a health-focused podcast to my record. What’s your favourite??
