Good-bye 2013, hello 2014

I don’t know about everyone else but I’m ready for 2014.  2013 wasn’t bad for us, except medically the last part of the year.  Let’s see, starting in September, we had:

– Kenny:

Broken toe = 4 X-rays and a trip to an orthopedic doctor.  Plus, he was sick for the entire month of November.

– Eric:

Bruised ribs = X-ray to make sure they weren’t broken.

– Luke:

Sick for most of November.

– Me:

Sick for the entire month of November.

– Camille (dog):

Cancer of the mouth = X-ray and a trip to an oncologist.

– Mac (dog):

Tore his ACL.  Luckily for us money-wise, our vet doesn’t recommend surgery for him due to how big he is.  He said if he was a working dog, it would be another story.

I had the boys fill these out on New Years Eve so I could remember what they liked best about the year and what they are looking forward to.



I’m not the best at keeping up on this blog anymore but I still try to get in and record the bigger things, even if it’s months later.
