I'm sorry you ripped your finger open!
I still have Christmas cards up from 2012. We didn't get nearly as many in 2013 for some reason, so if I put those up I'll wait to do it in our new house next month, or just wait until Christmas 2014. I put the Christmas decorations away.
My husband and I went to the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami Beach this past weekend. http://btcmiami.com I sold magazines at the Bitcoin Magazine table and I would have heard Jason King speak but he wasn't there when it was time for his speech. He named Sean's Outpost after a friend of his who died, and that is the name of his program in which he uses bitcoin donations to buy food to feed homeless people in Pensacola, FL. The other speech I went to was by Elizabeth Ploshay, who works with me on Bitcoin Magazine. My husband's parents watched our children while we were gone. I could've done without the loud booming music almost everywhere we went in Miami Beach but boy was it great to be around adults all weekend!
My husband started working on taxes this week. What a headache! I'm so glad I don't earn enough money to have to pay taxes and I don't have to be involved very much in that process.
My younger three children finished their chore charts in the last week. I hope my oldest will improve her attitude and get motivated so she can join them; chore charts include schoolwork and she needs to do more than just read and play.
My exercise bike sounds like a frog. I sprayed it with WD-40 on Tuesday night because it was squeaking (high pitch) and croaking, and rode it last night. When I rode it for about 5 minutes tonight, it started to sound like a frog again so now that our guest is gone and I can get to the WD-40 I will spray it again. I found out that the exercise bike I bought at a yard sale last November, the VitaMaster Air Waves, is made by a brand that doesn't exist anymore so if it breaks I can't get parts. I hope it lasts a while longer though because it was only $10 and it works both my arms and my legs.
This month I turned 29. I like that I'm still under 30 and I can still feel sort of young.
I hope you all have a great last day of January!
