Addition to the family

2013 brought a new family member. Meet Nymphadora, our new black kitten. We picked her up about a week ago, and she's settled in just fine. She's afraid of our Chinchilla. BradLee torments her, and she sleeps with us. She's pretty playful at the moment.

Since I put off moving back home this summer, right now I'm aiming for vacation at the end of November. I really would like to go to the L.A. Auto Show, it falls the last week of November, I'll have vacation built at work as long as I don't use it when I get it in May, and it'll put me away from here for Thanksgiving. BradLee will be a year older by then so a lay over flight will be easier hopefully, if I travel alone I need it easy, and he can enjoy Disney even more. We can spend Thanksgiving day there, maybe have a dinner at my dad's, if he's still living there then.

I need to actually put to paper or Word my mod list for my car, I'm going to save for parts for it as well as vacation when I can. I need to open a savings account soon to stash money away in. I hot 90,000 in her the other day, which also means to put money away to start replacing things that will need to be at 100,000. That'll be a good time to add an oil cooler, something I've wanted for a little while now.

Hello 2013

All I can say is I'm glad 2012 is over. It was probably the worst year I could have ever had.

I wanted to do a wrap up of the year, but its just not worth it. I enjoyed my trips to Cali and Oklahoma, I plan to go back to both this year. The holiday season ended up being a decent one for me, things started to look up. Now if only they stay up this year.

BradLee turned 3! and Myles turned 6. I can't believe it's been 6 years since Myles arrived. It doesn't seem like it should be that long.

For the first time in 4 years I bought stuff for my self aside from just books. I also got to do more of what I wanted.

Goals for this year are to get back into my writing like I was, I submitted a piece for the Fandoms for storms, and I realized how much I missed writing. I also plan to read more, I missed my goal horrible last year for books read in a year. I lowered the goal this year by a little bit so maybe I can get back into reading like I used to.

This year I get to legally become a single woman, by finalizing my divorce, which I can't wait to do. Only 79 more days till we can petition for a court date. By Feb I'll see a lawyer and get cost so once I have my taxes I can get papers done. Plus I don't have to worry about him just taking BradLee if he ever decides to. Tho I don't think he will, He hasn't seen him since August. I made the effort on Thanksgiving and he didn't show, He made no effort for Christmas either.

I don't know what 2013 has in store, but I entered it with  my boys, maybe it will be a good year.
