The year in review

  • Out of town visitors. I miss my far away relatives. It actually got me to do a little housecleaning, lol
  • Teaching card classes at the local scrapbook store, which has inspired me to hold "Crafty Lunch hour" at the office. It is good way to unwind for a bit and also use up some of my stash.
  • Lots of museum visits. I am fortunate to have so many great museums close by.
  • A new hobby: knitting. Hopefully, I won't overbuy supplies like I'm doing with my scrapbooking stash.
  • Figuring out that I should be able to retire comfortably if I keep doing what I'm doing. Yay!
  • Finished the last month of the year with at (slightly) lower weight and a renewed interest in exercising.
  • Awesome coworkers who were very supportive during the month from hell (see below)
The lows:
  • Too many losses (a dear friend's mother, an uncle, and an aunt). Very stressful for the family
  • The close of Two Peas in a Bucket, one of the most popular scrapbooking sites. Obviously, not popular enough since they had to close. For me, it is an unfortunate statement on the the state of scrapbooking. Thankfully, some peas organized a new message board so I still have a place to hang out.
  • November, the month from hell. I'm just now feeling like life is getting back to normal.
  • Huge bills from November and unexpected bills this month. Good thing I'm a saver.
  • Didn't hit my 2014 goals, oh well.
 Hope you all have a wonderful 2015!
