Saying good-bye 2013

It is hard to believe that 2013 will be over in a few hours. I had a chance to see JJ this weekend for a delayed Christmas. We had an awesome time filled with gifts, adventures and Krispy Kreme. This was my favorite photo that summed up my trip.

It has been an interesting year. I was looking back at the 13 things I planned to do in 2013.
Here is a quick recap and whether I was successful.
13 things to do in 2013I will spend more time with my son at his home and at my home. This year, I have seen him once a month for a long weekend. He spent a week with me in RR in August. Hopefully, I can convince his father to meet me half way so we have more adventures in RR.

 I will not let ED win. I will continue the fight. The fight continues! I will admit the last few months haven't been easy without insurance and medication. When the clock strikes 12, I will become insured once more.
 Focus more on my love of photography. I have busy but still stop to take photos. My son is still the focus of a l…

My year in review according to Facebook

It is hard to believe in a few days that 2013 will be over. 2013 has been a pretty decent year.

December musings

It is hard to believe that December is almost half over and 2013.

My editor had an emergency last week so I had to paginate the entire paper. It was quite experience involving eight hours, lots of caffeine and tons of prayer. For my hard work, I was given the Staples credit card and told I could pick out the day planner, pens and any other supplies I needed. To me, it was the equivalent of having a shopping spree in Macy's. It took me a hour to pick out the planner and 30 minutes to pick out the pens. I am a very happy Jackie!!!

It has been a busy month so far for me. So far, I have :
Used a free moment to decorate my computer monitor, which is very old school and cracked to look a little better.
Discovered that health insurance is no longer cheap. Through my work, it will cost me about $425 a month for JJ and I for the cheap version. Then I found out the cheap will not cover him because he lives in SC. Got to paginate the entire newspaper by myself after my editor had an emergency.…
