2015 In Review
Jan 08 2016
Not too bad doing an entry and it is only Jan 8th!! So I need to do a quick recap of 2015 so I can essentially say good bye to 2015 and hello 2016! 2015 really was a rough year with extreme highs and extreme lows. But we managed and we got thru it and here we are welcoming a new year.
Have to wonder where to even start. Since it is a BDSM Journal guess there is as good as place as any. I sincerely cannot imagine living my life any other way. We have a routine, I have my rules, and it works, it just works. No it is not all sex and scenes but it is always M/s. I know it, He knows it and it really works for us. I do not think, I have even been as comfortable in a relationship as I am in this one. Our sex life is good, our M/s life is good. Yes it is all good..:)
2015 however brought us alot of money issues, yup we bled it, over and over and over again. Kids and weddings and houses and babies and cruises (three of them!) ALot of stress, but in the end we survived and we are still here working away and saving money for an early retirement. Which really can't come fast enough.
As well as the money stresses 2015 also brought us alot of happiness. Our son is finally married and has purchased a beautiful 10 acre piece of property and our daughter and son in law had a baby girl. We did three cruises, plus numerous trips to Disney. No lacking in the happiness category!
And the animals - we rescued something like 20 wild animals this year. Many sleepless nights taking care of them and lots of tears shed when it was time to release them. Our family grew with the addition of one more flying squirrel named Ranger and a few more chickens. We also discovered that Our Rocky boy was not a BOY but a girl. Phew am glad we did not allow Ranger (whom is DEFINITELY a boy ) and Rocky to mate! We also received devastating news when told our Gypsy dog had cancer. It put me in a huge depression, two surgeries and chemo later and she is on the road to recovery. Like humans, we now just wait. The longer she goes without a re-occurance the better it is. The meds OMG caused her to pee and pant and eat and did I mention pee??? All over the carpets ARGH was a rough few weeks I tell you. My OCD..OVER DRIVE. LOL But Gypsy is a trooper and she did so well and I love her to death and I can only hope that I get another few yeas out of her.
My health went up and down this year, the MS can be a bitch but I did lose alot of weight and I plan to continue that into 2016. I am not foolish I know it will take awhile but I sincerely hope to be at my goal weight, by the middle of 2017. I did end up on anti-depressants this year and yup menopause is a bitch!
We did lose a couple of family memebrs in 2015, gram was 96 and she had a great life. The other, was a cousins of Masters, never met the man. But he died young. In his 40's my understanding was complications from Aids.
The business continues to grow. We invested in some new equipment which makes the shop run more efficiently and we fired one person. So far the shop is functioning well without that additional person.
And I guess in closing, our life, this journal and 2016. Overall it was a stressful year, the journal showed it with so few entries. Time is always an issue. I hope to change that this year. But we shall see what the new year brings us. Hard to beleive that I am now on 16 years of journal entries. HOLY CRAP! LOL thats alot of hot air coming out of my lips lol. So heres to the end of 2015 and to the upcoming year. I cannot wait to see what it brings us!
I have lost 52 pounds this year
