As you know, I spent about half of 2013 on a coffee break. Now that I’ve finally put my mug down and picked my laptop back up, I thought I’d give you a synopsis of how just kind 2013 was to us.
Brock learned to read.
I learned to write (in HTML).
*Side note: Comparatively speaking, I’m only about as proficient in writing HTML as Brock is in reading English, though.
Brock hosted his first sleep over.
I hosted my first Flag Day party.
Brock got a new sled.
I got a new car.
Brock lost his first tooth.
I had a first date (for the first time in nearly a decade and a half).
One of Brock’s goals for 2013 was to meet his cousin, Ainsley.
One of my goals for 2013 was to pay off my credit card debt.
(On a single mom’s part-time salary, guys–it’s possible!)
A few other things that happened during my coffee break:
- I went to 7 festivals, and 7 shows.
- Brock tuned 7.
- We adventured in 7 different states (one of which was a new state, as promised in last year’s recap).
- I discovered 17 new coffee shops. (Did you honestly think I would’ve stopped at just 7?)
