This is me with the figurative Pledge and rag in hand dusting off my blog for 2014.
I may have completely ignored my blog for the majority of 2013. Whoops! I did sit down several times to write, but it is harder than you think to start writing when you've taken a break for weeks/months at a time.
But I'm here now to report that 2013 was a pretty spectacular yet dull year. And that is a-okay with me! We did have a few big moments, Marcus graduated from High School, Ben was fully potty trained and learned to write his name, Jake moved in...then out....then in again, and Don and I worked hard managing our money and were able to hire someone to replace (almost) all the windows in our house. We are also in good shape to replace the bay windows and siding this spring. Yay for home improvement!
But aside from those few items of import, 2013 was really pretty uneventful. Just a lot of work, school, play and happiness. I'm not sure you can ask for much more than that.
As for 2014, it is so far on course to look exactly the same as 2013. Plugging away at my accounting degree, wishing it was a bit more interesting, working too many jobs but enjoying them, spending time with my favorite almost-four-year-old (yeah that's right FOUR), reading and, hopefully, writing.
I'm not going to set myself a lot of goals for 2014, but I do want to read less (perhaps I am the only person in the world with that goal?) and write more. There is a woman and a story in my head that have been hanging out there for a while, and I think I need to see what happens when they appear on paper. Probably nothing. But then...maybe something. I guess I'll find out in 2014!
Happy New Year!
