2013 has been a roller coaster of a year. Here’s a quick summary of some major events that happened.
January – Early in January my uncle passed away and 12 hours later, my grandfather passed away as well. I was excited to be moving out of a crappy apartment where the heat and A/C didn’t work properly. We moved our belongings into a house that was supposed to be move in ready. It was not. We moved our stuff back into old apartment and had to find a new place to live within a week. Found another horrible place, this one in a bad area. I had an upper GI endoscopy while awake, very unpleasant. On the plus side, I won a Pintester tshirt and $500 from a video contest.
February – The new apartment was a mess, literally. Found myself, yet again, searching for a place to call home. My best friend had her baby while I was visiting her.
March – Pretty uneventful. Did a lot of cleaning and apartment searching.
April – We started budgeting and moved into our current apartment.
June – I celebrated my 28th birthday and 18 years of being cancer free.
July – I started volunteering at a local animal shelter and became a volunteer wish granter with my local Make-A-Wish chapter. I took a two week trip to visit my family in Upper Michigan.
August – I interviewed my first Wish kid and this first wish shall forever be remembered as a wish full of Kaseys. Me, the other wish granter, and the wish kid’s mother, all named Kasey – with a K no less!
September – We bought a couch.
October – The month of many interviews. I started working two jobs!
November – Been busy between work and volunteering. I started 30 days of organization, which is looking more like 60ish days of organization now!
December – Debt Perception turned 1! Got hearing aids. House cleaning job has been non-existent since Thanksgiving. Picked up two pet sitting opportunities. Learned to use chopsticks.
What will 2014 entail? Stay tuned!
