2013 Year End review

In 2013 we:

  • Went down to one car and bought a really big bicycle.

proof that federal tax credits DO stimulate the economy

  • Put a lot of miles on our bicycles, Dan riding to work and Leah riding with children in the back, stopping ever two minutes to adjust seat belts or pick up a dropped stick.
  • Lost 10lbs due to bicycling, gained 35lbs due to pregnancy (Not Dan, he's still very skinny).
  • Froze 15lbs of tomatos that Leah couldn't eat because of pregnancy-induced acid reflux. Froze ten servings of snow peas that went in less than a month. Note to Dan: order more snow pea seeds.
  • Started weaving on a loom. Stopped wearing make-up. Cut hair at home, and everyone was very forgiving about the mistakes in their haircuts.
  • Logged 1000 individual events of waking up in the night to take care of children. (This does not look likely to improve in 2014.)

And I'm sure we did many more interesting things that we can't remember, but that's what we keep this blog for. Right now we are planning a New Years party for 30+ people. By the end of the day I will be able to add to this list: "made chopped liver for the first time." And "cleaned my house for 30 people." But can't jump the gun yet...

A very happy new year to all of you!
