It’s the last week of December/the first week of January. Crazy 2013 is almost done. This year has been full of highs and lows. The high was our vacation to Virginia, South Carolina, Atlanta, and Alabama. The low was the loss of my father-in-law. We knew my father-in-law was not in the best of health, but we didn’t know we would lose him so suddenly. The vacation is full of memories with him that the whole family will cherish. I’m so glad we went on vacation.
I’m now looking toward 2014. We are planning our trip to Disney. Todd and my fourth time as a couple and the second time as a family. It’ll be the sixth time I’ve visited Disney. However, I don’t think you would count one of the times because I was down there for four months as a college intern.
I don’t have any resolutions for the next year. Actually, I do have one resolution. My father-in-law played Santa for 45 years and was kind to family, friends, and strangers. He would talk and really listen to others. So I will be a Santa to my friends, family, and strangers. Do you have any resolutions?
