2015 has been a busy year with changes. Here is a recap of my year.
January brought us into our third year of marriage the first week of the month.
February brought me vacation from my prison of a job which I used as a week with Wrangler in the semi on the road. We had a big cold snap below freezing. We went to a horse festival in Wichita as a vacation.
March was probably the worse month of the year. My job was getting to a point where I no longer felt safe. My boss had started to throw his phone, stapler, etc across the office. Nothing I did was right. The only good that came was putting my two weeks notice in the last full week of the month. My Grandma died on the 25th on my dad’s birthday and Wrangler’s grandma died the 30th.
April was a month of finding my feet. April 3 was the last week I worked. I went out on the road with Wrangler. Those first couple of weeks we were in a loaner truck because Wranger’ s was in the shop. We had a funeral mid week for his Grandma. We celebrated my 28th Birthday on the road. I was adjusting to getting use to my grandma being gone. After we got Wrangler’s truck back at the end of the month things settled more.
May brought me out on the road with Wrangler the first couple of weeks. The second to last week BIL graduated from sixth grade. He spent two weeks with us. We went to the lake at Memorial Day on possibly the coldest lake trip ever.
June brought partial weeks in the semi with Wrangler. I had to go to a lawyer and a court hearing for Grandma’s estate. I got my garden in and it started to grow.
July brought staying home and watching the neighbor girl. Fourth of July we hosted a block party. I did go one week on the road and we had two different break downs and ended up in hotels two nights. While broke down we did start looking at houses. The last week BIL was up here. It was also fair week.
August brought some additions to our family. My sister got married to her boyfriend of seven years. BIL was here until the last week of the month. The best thing that happened was at the end of the month I became an Aunt to Niece. I went in the truck the last week of the month.
September brought Labor Day and another lake trip. The rest of the month I was in the semi during the week and canning on the weekend
October we bought our house. We had to get our lot ready for it. The house needed prepared to move. I went in the semi two weeks than was home. In the middle of this I helped SIL and her family move.
The first Wednesday of November brought the house moving day. I woke up the next day realising the fact I was suppose to host Thanksgiving in three weeks. I got us moved in and settled. We gutted the master bedroom to make it our own. The week before Thanksgiving a snow storm hit dumping 25 inches on us. Thanksgiving hit and so did an ice storm. None of the out of the out of town family could make it.
December brought two weeks on the road with Wrangler. A much needed break. Than the last three weeks I have been home working on Christmas. I made the majority of our gifts. Also all the baking, decorating, and such. We had Christmas number 1 the 20th. 34 of us. 11 came to Christmas Eve at my house. 6 on Christmas Day. This last week I have been hanging with BIL at home.
I have traveled many places this year. The states I went to are the following:
Kansas (my state of residence)
New Mexico (New state for me)
I can not wait to see what 2016 will bring.
