    Highlights- I lost 30+ kilos and found myself again.
    My DS1 completed kindy, Ds2 is just a firey ball of awesome. I did well at work and got my contract renewed in my higher duties position. Won an award at work with a great cash prize.

    Lowlights- ds2 was sick for the first six months. Ds1 took ages to adjust to his new kindy. My work are making me go back FT. I just missed out on a promotion by a hair. Worst was a truly horrible situation at DH's work that has required ongoing police investigation and still has no real resolution. The following depression and anxiety that it caused my DH was crippling.

    Feeling so connected to DH after so many years and so many hardships.

    Lowlights:
    There were plenty but they've passed and I've learned and grown from them.

    Highlights:

    I had, what I consider to be, life saving surgery resulting in me losing 43kg.

    I got some self esteem and started paying attention to myself.

    I reduced my anti-depressants drastically and went off BP medication all together.

    I finally (I think) have made peace with the fact that my family is complete.

    I settled into my job and have loved every moment of it.

    Lowlights:

    I failed at so many aspects of parenting.

    I spent all year in financial ruin, again.
