I hereby dub 2010 my Year of Radical Change.
I started out a new mother, with a baby only 14 days old. I do not remember New Year’s Day at all. In July, when the baby was refusing to sleep for more than 45 minutes at a time, I became a single mother. I don’t remember much of that month, either. But I remember that conversation.
Now, with the end of the year in sight, I am becoming an unemployed single mother. A day after returning to work, I’ve been made redundant. That was one meeting I don’t think I’ll ever forget.
