2013 A Year in Review I Guess

January 3, 2014

2013 was a year of changes with a little bit of stay the sames mixed in.

I started the year off working for myself for the first time with no safety net of a “regular job”.  In February Bill starting working for a corporation and not for himself for the first time since I’ve known him. That was a pretty big adjustment for both of us and we had to try to figure out how to live together full time for the first time even though we had been together for 5 years.

In March I finally got Bill to come out to LA with me so I could show him the wonders of a 70 degree year round life. He gets it now! WOOHOO. Now to find our way out there. That’s the trick.

In May Skylar turned 14 and the realization that she only had 4 more years of a kid life with us proved to be too much. Bill and I cried the night away like 2 fools. Well, that and the series finale of the Office was also that night.

Summer Summer Summer.

Back to school started with me deciding to home school Skylar. It’s actually going well. She’s getting good grades for the first time!

October we moved to Lakewood, into a big beautiful house where the kids finally have their own rooms and I have a 6 mile drive to work. Fallyn and J braved their way to new schools and they have to walk there for the first time in their lives. It kicks ass and we love it here.

November we celebrated 5 years of marriage with a bunch of our awesome friends and a lot of rape juice. A week after that I turned 35. Does anyone ever feel their age? I don’t.

December got weird and I came the closest I’ve ever come to ending my marriage. I believe in fighting for someone you love but it also reminded me that I’m worth fighting for too and I felt stronger than ever after I remembered that. In the end we decided to stay together but it feels really good to not be afraid of losing Bill anymore because if that ever does happen, yes it will be shitty and I will be sad but then I’ll be ok again.

So what I’ve learned this year is that everything is temporary and life will never stop going all the way up and then dropping you all the way down so just to slow down and appreciate the good times and brave your way through the hard times because no matter what there will always be another good thing waiting for you just around the corner.
