2014- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
I can't say I am sorry to see 2014 end. It was a most challenging year, testing me in so many ways.
No, I do not have much good to say about 2014 but I will try.
So, here are some of the good things for 2014:
a trip to the Christmas Revels at Harvard University
a sunset lighthouse cruise in New Hampshire
a visit to a sunflower field in Newbury
a few trips to the Vintage Bazaar in Salisbury
meeting Matthew Mead at Brissonte in North Reading
a couple of trips to Rockport
seeing the members of the Boston Ballet on the Swan Boats at the Public Garden
a few cat sitting jobs
some photography work- First Communion, family reunion, and 50th birthday party
discovered a new coffee shop in Concord
Some of the bad:
leaving my old job, wasted 26 months with a company that made promises they never kept.
my old car cost me quite a bit in repairs
I had to pay thousands of dollars to have the house painted - my share of the condo assessment
And the ugly:
the stress of my job and working on commission
my Dad's hospital stays in February and March, a trip to the emergency room the day after Christmas
my Mom's trip to the emergency room in July, and hospital stay the week of Thanksgiving
So there you go. My year in review. Here's to a better 2015! Happy New Year!
