New year – new possibilities

This year has passed by with a tremendous speed, I’ve written a lot in 2009 and commented Norwegian news a lot – it has given me a lot of traffic and attention from new places. I’ve had visitors from 160 countries/territories, which is a new record for me. I’ve had hectic days at home; school, kindergarten and after school activities for the kids. We’ve prioritized football and the general sports school – a fantastic offer I’ve often tagged along; forest and mountain walks, glade-walking, canoe and fishing trips. Its fun to see kids in these environments instead of placing them in front of the tv.

On the society side it has been an ordinary year, I’m an active Red Cross member within the home-visiting-service, been an associate judge for our local district court in many cases where I learn a lot about what happens out there, active in Kiva lending money to exiting people on the other side of the planet. The most exciting thing in 2009 was being part of the mass vaccination as helping personnel from Red Cross. A weird experience. 🙂
