2013 in Review

2013 was about the hardest year of my life. But that’s not a bad thing, really.

Some highlights and accomplishments (in no particular order):

  • Dillon went to police academy (and graduated), leaving me home four or five days a week alone with MM.
  • I gave birth (naturally) to a 9 lb 9 oz baby boy. I am still ridiculously proud of that.
  • I fought with a roller coaster of emotions throughout the year but I finally feel like I’m in a pretty good place with all of it.
  • Went to Utah in March, August, September, October, and November.
  • Finished writing my Grandma Jane’s history.
  • I attempted to garden and failed.
  • I exercised better throughout the year than I have for a long time.
  • MM is now talking really well.
  • I decorated my house, including getting a new house, a new bed, etc., and a lot of projects like a headboard, frames/pictures throughout the house, and painting the main part of my house.
  • I served as second counselor in the primary presidency at church.
  • I made whole lot of friends/improved friendships–some online, most of them where I live now. I feel like I connected with people better this year.
  • I published some articles on Family Share and one on
  • I finished a new good, complete draft of my Superhero Wife novel.
  • I found a writing group/more writing friends.
  • I read 52 books (sort of. Two were partial. I’ll finish them soon).
  • My husband continued working as a park ranger in Nevada.
  • We adopted a dog.
  • I got a piano.
