I hope you are all well and have had an amazing Holiday Season. It seems crazy that the holidays are coming to a close already, that seems to be the theme for this year – “Where has the time gone?”.
This past year has been an amazing year with so many exciting times. I am so grateful for everything that has happened over the last year. I thought since it is New Year’s Eve I would take some time to thank you all for your continued support and patience while my life has been a little crazy.
We have moved into our new home, it has been one month since we moved in. Everyone is settling into their new schools and schedules. I am slowly figuring out our new neighborhood and bus routes to my favorite places and boring places like the bank and doctors too. But I definitely have the route to Starbucks cased so we are all good! Rick my Guide Dog has adjusted amazingly to the new area and the new routes so well too he amazes me every day.
The kids are loving their new schools and have made some new friends as well. One of the reasons that we moved was our daughter was having a hard time in the schools in our last community with fitting in and being bullied. She has made a complete 360 and seeing her happy is worth all of the struggles. The other reason for the move was to be able to spend more time with the kids we were commuting an hour each way every day and I was commuting an hour to my husband at the end of the day as well as the hour home. So now I commute 25 minutes to work on the bus, and we are home by 4:30 p.m. which gives us plenty of time to spend with the kids which has been great.
This year has been great in so many other ways like being recognized as one of Saskatchewan’s CBC Top 40 Under 40, and being nominated for the YWCA women of distinction awards, finally gaining employment and loving my job, being a contributor for AMI, and so much more.
I would like to wish you all the best in 2018 and Thank You all for your support over the last year with all of the changes and amazingness. This blog has been great and has grown so much and I want to thank you all for your support. Without you, there would be no Blind Moving On.
Until Next Time,
Ashley and Rick
