I have had a peaceful weekend. No mood swings.
On Saturday, I was out shopping for kiddie gifts. I had a ball because I love toy stores. I think I am done shopping. My family and I gave up giving gifts to each other for the New Year because, thankfully, we all have what we need. So, instead I am buying gifts for the children of the guards, the gardener, the office assistant and the office boy. I am also giving gifts to the daughters of the cleaning lady.
On Sunday, I was planning to paint the large piece but did not feel like it. So, that is on hold. As I was waxing the two pieces I have painted, I found some areas where I did not do such a great job. I must touch those up too.
It was a dark and soggy day on Sunday so, I did some laundry, spent time on the couch watching TV and dozing off.
I will be in Ankara tomorrow and Wednesday. I will have only a few hours to see mom but, that's OK. We'll be together for the New Year.
I cannot believe that 2017 is almost over. Personally, it was not a bad year but, I think it was a pretty bad year in terms of economy, unemployment, international relations and general governance of the country. I have a feeling that 2018 will not be much better. The growing tension between the nations for all sorts of stupid reasons make me worry but I will foucus on my life and try to make the best of every single day if I can.
It is time for me to come up with the budget of 2018. I will be working on that till the end of the year.
