Romel has a severely damaged Achilles and has the beginnings of carpal tunnel syndrome in BOTH wrists. And we all know we’ve put on even more weight this past year. Not healthy, I know. The main thing is, WE’RE HAPPY. Honestly and truly happy. My son graduated high school, my daughter got moved to our alma mater, and we’re all in good health and haven’t killed each other, yet.
With RJ in college, Shelby in high school, and Emily slowly getting potty trained, I look at my calendar and RECALCULATE my retirement date. L O L! Emily pushed me back another 14 freakin years! I was nearing the end of the line and I succumbed to the original plan (dated 1994) to have THREE kids with my husband. Sigh.
2014 marks 23 years that I’ve been with my husband and 19 years married. My god where did the time go?!!! Now, I look at my teenage daughter and I cringe at the thought that when I was her age, I already had a boyfriend. I look back at that and laugh at how stupid I was. How, as a teenager, I thought I knew everything. I see all of me in her and it kills me. I’m a complete hard ass and if she’s going to be twice as bad as I was, I’ve got my work cut out for me.
Welp, goodbye 2013, hello 2014. Let’s make this new year another good one, shall we?
Happy New Year, don’t drink and drive, be safe, and rock out with your wok out!
Hello, to make PANCIT! HAHAHAA!!!
