30 Day June Blog Challenge- Day 17: Highs and Lows This Past Year
Today's post for the blogging challenge is to talk about your highs and lows this past year.
2012 was a decent year for me, but it wasn't great. I moved out of my parent's house and got a place with my fiance in July, which was definitely a high but once winter time came it was really hard. My fiance is in construction so winter is always really tough in finding work. Of course when we moved it was fine because he had steady work, but then it died off in October/November. With my retail job not making it any better, I wasn't sure if we'd make it. We always made rent and paid bills on time though, and David was still able to find work here and there, but he had no work for literally almost a month at one point. I'm a really lucky girl though because I have amazing parents who helped us out alot at that time by getting us giftcards to get groceries and whatnot. They still help us out now, but damn, I hate winter.
Hurricane Sandy was a big low too. We didn't have power for nearly a week and we lost all of our food in the fridge and freezer. We had just gone shopping to prepare for the storm too and that killed me. We had to go to my parent's house to shower and charge up our phones. Sheesh, I really hate thinking about Sandy. I was seriously in full-on depression mode. Our house was freezing, I wasn't able to cook anything so I had to constantly buy breakfast at Wawa and buy lunches at the food court at work. That got real expensive. One decent thing about that hurricane was that our electric bill for that month was about $10 less than the month before.
I can't really think of any other highs and lows. The major high was just me moving out on my own, trying to be a big girl. The main low was all of winter. Seriously, I hate winter.
