2014 in Review

2014 in Review

I like this thing that my cousin Emily does so I'm doing it too.
  1. What did you do in 2014 that you'd never done before? Moved to Utah
  2. What would you like to have in 2015 that you lacked in 2014? Family reunions of all kinds! :-)
  3. What dates from 2014 will remain etched upon your memory, and why? Considering how bad my memory is getting, I doubt any dates will be etched on my memory.  But hopefully I will remember April 13, 2014 since that's the day my second granddaughter was born! :-)
  4. What was your biggest achievement of the year? I followed the promptings that we received to move to Utah.  It was a BIG decision.
  5. What was your biggest failure? This will take some thought.  Biggest failure? I'm sure if we asked my kids they would come up with something.  Possibly moving my 16 year old away from MA will be what he sees as a failure but I just can't honestly say I would do it differently.
  6. Did you suffer illness or injury? Nothing major.  Same ol' stuff with me.
  7. What was the best thing you bought? A new house in Utah with a basement apartment for my son, daughter-in-law, and grand babies!
  8. Where did most of your money go? Moving expenses and house/house expenses.
  9. What did you get really, really, really excited about? Being near my family.
  10. What song will always remind you of 2014? Hmmm Probably "All about that bass" because my kids love to sing just a piece of it around me, knowing it will get stuck in my head and drive me crazy.
  11. Compared to this time last year, are you:
    a) happier or sadder?
    tough one.  Happier to be near family but moving away from your friends of 10 years is super hard and moving your teenager away from his friends is super hard which makes me sometimes feel sadder.
    b) thinner or fatter? ugh fatter.
    c) richer or poorer? feels like more money is flowing outward...
  12. What do you wish you'd done more of? spending time with friends
  13. What do you wish you'd done less of? hmmm...facebook? haha such a waste of time most of the time!
  14. What was your favorite TV program? I finally watched Gilmore Girls. :-)
  15. What was the best book you read? I read so many!  Um, I loved Unbroken.  But since I didn't keep a list this year I can't remember all the books I read.  Keeping a list in 2015!
  16. What did you want and get? A new bike, to live near my grandkids/kids/siblings/parents
  17. What did you want and not get? wood floors
  18. What was your favorite film of the year? No idea.  Seriously, I have a baaaad memory.
  19. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you? 48. lunch and movie with my friend Annette.
  20. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2014? comfortable and usually unattractive
  21. What kept you sane? chocolate?  Although it also helped cause 11b so...
  22. Which celebrity did you fancy the most? Don't care about celebrities.
  23. What political issue stirred you the most? Don't care much about politics either.  But I can get going about some things in private.  Not a "put my politics on the internet" kind of person.
  24. Who is the best new person you met? Kaylee Elizabeth Hill
  25. Who did you miss? All my MA people (after July). 
  26. Tell us a valuable lesson you learned in 2014.  Even if you know you are doing the right thing, it might still be hard.
  27. What were your favorite photos from 2014?   


  1. I'm so glad you did this! I always have to look back through old blog posts to get my answers, I can never remember what happened when. I love your answers!

  2. I purposefully didn't look back at old bogs. Wanted to see what I could remember! Haha probably a mistake.
