2014 Year in Review



It’s been a while since I published anything so figured what better way to start off 2015 than to recap our year in 2014.  For the most part, 2014 was a great year for us.  I did have some health scares in March, November & December that have tested me in many ways.  I am physically much better now and I know the mental part will follow in time.  But for now I am SO ready to see what 2015 has in store for us.


January:
-      We closed on our new house.  I call it our forever house because not only do I love it, but I am NEVER moving again.
-      The Hudson Valley (and most of the country) had record breaking freezing temperatures.  Per weather.com, the core of the cold came Monday, Jan. 6 (the day we closed) and Tuesday, Jan. 7 (the day the movers came with our things).


February:
-      “Snowpocalypse 2014” was in full effect this month.  We received over 30 inches of snow here in the Hudson Valley that month. The 2013-2014 winter was the 7th snowiest season in 120 years.
-      Our son and I attended the Valentine’s Day dance held at his school (on one of the few days it didn’t snow).

 

March:
-      I had surgery to remove the left half of my thyroid.  Thankfully all tests came back normal and I am doing just fine now :)
-      Hubby and I celebrated our birthdays!
-      The snow and cold continued…..
