It's been a year since I last posted.
Hard to believe but I have been really busy. Too busy to do much of anything except work 2 jobs and sleep. Just ask my honey. He doesn't see much of me anymore. I feel a lot like a passing ship when it comes to him. I am hoping to change that in 2013 by getting a job that will allow me to have more time, more freedom and make more money to make all of those things possible.
I was happy to let 2012 go. It was a really tough year. I lost a lot of people I cared and loved in 2012.
My grandmother, Ellen Crawford, passed in the spring after being in hospital.
Then my cousin Bobby Alcorn was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 24 in June.
A few months later, my Uncle Keith Ashford died after being in the hospital for complications of a stroke. I miss them all.
Work consisted of me going from one job to the other with no time in between and barely any time off. I did take a week's vacation in September and went camping with my honey. Fishing wasn't the greatest but the weather was awesome and we both needed the time off.
We were blessed with another grandbaby in 2012. Easton Michael Milless was born on November 20, 2012. He is a handsome little boy and his sisters, Ava and Lilly are doing well.
Right now, I am writing this on my first day off of 2013. My last full day off was the day after Christmas. My best present (other than the new tires I needed for my car I got from my honey) was my son, Alex, and his girlfriend, Ali, coming home to surprise us. Andy came home from Iowa and was able to spend Christmas with us, too, which was great.
The book we published in my last post sold a few copies, but we didn't make a fortune off of it. I did learn a lot from the experience of publishing it and plan to have a few other books added to the list to sell this year. I did get a new Kindle from my son for Christmas, which is awesome. I love being able to just read and have all those books on one little device. It's like holding a library in your hands.
I do love old fashioned books because I don't have to recharge them and can take them anywhere.
I know a lot of people are making resolutions. I have decided to embrace the idea of making commitments for 2013. I have listed them here:
Commitments for 2013
1. Give more time, love, energy, and prosperity to my honey in 2013. (Spoil him rotten!)
2. Be grateful and appreciative of each and every day I'm above ground.
3. Take my honey to Alaska to go fishing.
4. Publish my writing.
5. Lose 50 pounds or more.
6. Make $25 an hour or more at one job.
7. Spend more quality time with my family, especially the kids and the grandkids.
I hope everyone has a fabulous 2013. I will be posting again very soon, well before 2014. :)
