it's been a funny old year with all sorts happening.
Obviously the highlight of our year has been the arrival of the two "N's." Miss Nora who arrived on November 16th and our little Princess who arrived on January 12th. Both have put so much love in our hearts and are such a blessing.
We were also fortunate to be able to go away on vacation in September to our beloved Smokies. It was a break we both needed and it made us realize how much we missed going away, and that along with a number of other things also made us decide that this house is too much for us, which triggered another big decision to put the house up for sale in 2014.
Also due to some ill health and even some people dying both close to us and passing acquaintances in 2013, it made us realize we need to embrace every day we have left on this earth. You just never know when it's your time to be called away.
We did try earlier in the year to replace Molly with Milly, but that just didn't work out and we haven't felt the need in our hearts to look for another dog, although we have been tempted a time or two. I never knew an animal could affect me so much and we/I think of her nearly every day.
I will not be seeing the New Year in, haven't done in a number of years now. We do go out for dinner tonight, no where fancy. I will clean out my coupon wallet today and will write down all the important dates and birthdays on my 2014 calendar before I throw out the 2013 one.
I will talk about our plans and hopes for 2014 tomorrow.
A Happy New Year everyone.
