2013 in Summation

I can’t believe 2013 is over and 2014 is here. The other day someone said that when people refer to 10 years ago, they think of 1995, not 2003. I totally agree with them. So surreal.

2013 was a helluva year – so much good, and some not so good. Here are’s the run-down:


  • Started the year with a nasty cold and moonshine with my sister, brother and good peeps
  • Annual January 1st soup and margarita night with good friends
  • Ended a relationship that wasn’t working
  • Started taking dance lessons
  • An old friend came to visit for the weekend


  • My niece giggled at me for the first time while I zerberted her belly
  • Went to the Hot Sulfur Springs
  • Spent many a night at Happy Hour
  • Went to several basketball games on campus
  • Met the man my friends would refer to as “Mr. Typewriter” and started down a path I knew would hurt


  • Took my nephew to a WWE event and blew his mind
  • Realized watching NASCAR can be amusing
  • Spent time with my sister-in-law and nephew during their trip home
  • Spent an inordinate amount of time with Mr. Typewriter


  • Ended things with Mr. Typewriter
  • Started online dating (blerg)
  • Continued dance lessons
  • Broke a cardinal rule of online dating and went WAY out of my way to meet a guy only to have him open the door and feel utter disappointment


  • Back with Mr. Typewriter (not shocked, are you?)
  • Started going to church (shocked, aren’t you?)
  • Zac Brown concert

  • Dealt with near flooding at my house during the crazy rains
  • Really, really, really ended things with Mr. Typewriter
  • Took my dad to our annual Rockies game
  • Still dancing my butt off every chance I get
  • Went camping in Redstone, CO


  • Celebrated my birthday
  • Went to my favorite hot springs
  • Purposely spent a lot of time by myself as an alternative to spending time with the wrong people just to distract myself from myself
  • Went trick-or-treating with my niece and nephew


  • Attended the memorial service for an old boss of mine who died way too young
  • Went reggae dancing with my sister and her manfriend
  • Went to a great concert to watch a friend’s band
  • Spent the weekend watching my niece
  • Had a great Thanksgiving with my family
  • Started the 24 Day Challenge


  • Dancing as much as possible
  • Stayed at my parent’s house with their pooch while they were out of town
  • Went to a few fun holiday parties
  • Finished the 24 Day Challenge with a renewed sense of health and well-being
  • Spent Christmas with my family

Here’s to 2014! I hope it’s a good one for all of us!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
