So, in lieu of the usual year-in-review survey I've completed in the past I'm going to do a quick bulleted-type list review. With pictures - of course - always with pictures. This will be difficult for me to keep my wordiness in check. You people know I'm wordy. Okay, so 2014. Here goes.
1/16/14 - Pregnant!
1/18/14 - Not pregnant. Chemical pregnancy.
1/18/14 - 1/20/14 - My child is potty trained in three days! Yah!
2/14/14 - You'd think I'd say something about Valentine's Day. But no. Decorated my foyer.
2/15/14 - Pregnant again!
3/20/14 - Confirmed miscarriage. This makes #4.
3/28/14 - Camping at Dreher Island for the weekend.
4/10/14 - Interview for a new job much closer to home!
4/12/14 - Leave for Daytona for a week's vacation.
4/14/14 - Turn 32 years old and celebrate with my family at the beach.
4/24/14 - Charleston, SC for a few days.
4/27/14 - Family pictures
5/6/14 - First ever broken bone - my baby toe!
5/15/14 - Second interview for new job. And yes, I squeezed that broken toe into heels and hobbled my way into the interview.
5/25/14 - Hosted a fun little Memorial Day cookout at our house.
5/29/14 - I got the job! And with its acceptance, we officially put any efforts in trying for baby #2 on hold.
6/13/14 - Last day at my old job. I was there for 7 years. Don't miss the commute but do miss a lot of the people.
6/14/14 - Take off with John, Charley and my parents for a 10 day trip to Chicago and Michigan.
6/21/14 - Attend our only wedding of the year which was the reason for the trip in Petoskey, MI. It was for my old coworker Katie whom I hadn't seen in a few years! (Sure, that post is about a different coworker but Katie and I were in cahoots for all of that so it's appropriate to link that up!)
6/24/14 - Start my new job.
7/4/14 - Spend the day at the lake, but it's just not the same as it used to be. Come home early and take Charley to fireworks instead.
8/15/14 - Still NOT trying to get pregnant while at a new job and all. So naturally:
8/16/14 - Camping at Foothills Family Campground.
8/28/14 - Charley starts preschool.
8/29/14 - Camping at Dan Nicholas Park for Labor Day weekend.
9/4/14 - Charley turns 3!
9/6/14 - Charley's birthday party & the cake I'll never be able to top.
9/11/14 - Finally good news at an ultrasound. Baby measured perfectly and is healthy.
9/19/14 - Hilton Head Island for the weekend.
10/11/14 - Camping in Myrtle Beach, SC for a long weekend.
10/31/14 - Halloween!
11/2/14 - It's a girl!
11/25/14 - Anatomy scan & she's a HEALTHY girl. Hallelujah.
12/8/14 - John turns 33.
December - holiday stuff. Craft shows, parades, craft day, Christmas parties, Polar Express, Christmas, etc.
12/31/14 - It's 11:30 p.m. I didn't think I'd make it this late. Charley's asleep, John's asleep and I'm blogging. It's been a good year even though there were some really obvious low points. Hoping for an even better 2015!
