Melbourne New Year 2014 (Photo credit: PreciousBytes)
I’m sure I have no more readers by now. It has been ages since I’ve kept this blog updated. I hope to change that this year.
2013 has been somewhat of a challenge for my family, but we have kept going. This past year started with all five of us down with the stomach virus. February saw my (at that time) 10 month old in the hospital for a week with RSV. March I lost my step-father, who was a great man. He was there for me and my brother for over 30 years, even when we messed up. He was a hard ass at times with us, but damn he was awesome. The best Opa there ever was as well. In October we also lost my mother-in-law. She wanted little girls and ended up with two boys. She finally got the little girls she wanted when we had our three girls. My husband’s family is still dealing with the loss and it is tough. Our girls are going through the ups and downs of trying to understand why Grandmom and Opa are no longer here.
For 2014, I want happiness. Pretty plain and simple, right? A healthy family, healthy friends, and a more focused me would make me happier. There are many specifics that I have yet to flesh out, but I hope to soon. Maybe tonight while I wait for the ball to drop and try to ignore Miley! I wish all of you a Happy and Healthy 2014.
