2013 was a pretty quiet year for me.  It had some ups and downs.  Some ups included seeing friends I hadn’t seen in a long time and a surprise visit from a cousin I hadn’t seen since my mom’s funeral in 2007.

Our family went on two vacations - one to Williamsburg and one to Virginia Beach.  It was the first time we have been on two vacations in one year.  

My husband got a part-time job that works well with the boys’ school schedule.  He’s glad to get out of the house and make some money.  

The biggest downer for me was the government shutdown which occurred in October.  Because of that, I ended up losing a total of 7 working days. However, I did receive a partial government shutdown payment from my job the week of Christmas!  It was a very nice surprise.  In addition, this was the most I’ve been off in a year due to the shutdown and two other unexpected days off (due to no power and snow).

Another downer was Coda, our dog of 15 years, had to be put down.  It was a hard decision and painful but we ended up getting another dog in the summer.

What will 2014 bring?  I’m seriously thinking of looking for another new job so hopefully I will get another job.  We might also move (again) next year.

How was 2013 for you?  Was it good or bad or somewhere in between?  I wish all of you fabulous ladies a wonderful 2014 and may all your dreams come true!!

Love it
