2012 was a roller coaster, that's for sure. It started out okay, but quickly went down hill. Money problems, jobs lost, jobs found, jobs having to be given up, 3 moves and a cat that was taken from us.....yea, it's not been all rainbows and sunshine.
In February, my husband lost his job. I was working, but only part time. We still had some money from out tax return, but that quickly fizzled out because of a few payments that came out that we wasn't expecting. In March, he found a new job and I had to give up my job, which I loved. That made me sad. But little did we know, this wasn't just a job my husband had found..it was a career.
Then, we were evicted from our house because of our cat.

In October, we hit a little snag, but we over came that and it's been pretty good.
Things have been steadily improving since then. We pulled Christmas off without stress and it was a success. We aren't struggling financially. We are happy. So 2012 is ending much better.
My hopes for 2013 are very simple. I hope my husband continues to excel at his job and to continue to advance. I hope my kids continue to do well at school and excel in their studies. They'll start 4th grade and can join the basketball team and cheer leading squad. Cailin will get to start preschool this fall and I'm hoping to get my business launched. I'm hoping to be at least 75 pounds lighter than I am now and I hope to be healthier. I hope we are still in the same home we are in and well on our way to buying our own home. I hope we continue to grow as a family and just be happy.
So see ya 2012! And bring it, 2013!
