Work is All-Consuming

I am certain that all of you -- our friends and family -- officially think we have fallen off the face of the Earth, but I assure you we are still around and kickin'! Work is all-consuming at the moment, both for Hubs and myself, together we worked 110 hours THIS WEEK! To be honest, neither of us are extraordinarily happy about the arrangement, but we put our heads down and get through the weeks because that is what needs to be done. There is no end in sight for either of us regarding the long hours, so the blog will likely be on hiatus for some time.

Happy New Year!!

2014 Phillips Family Year in Review
I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the things we wanted to accomplish this past year and see if any of them actually happened:
Hopes for 2014!
1.  Go on another dig (Yes -- here) 2.  Go to a convention or two -- Nope 3.  Travel and see new places (Yes -- here) 4.  Finish my Hepcat model (Yes -- here) 5.  Get the Spruce Goose to fly (we tried -- here) 6.  Have a wood insert installed in the fireplace (Yes -- here) 7.  Entertain more and have more visitors over to the house (Yes)
We did this! We had Mitch and Joy, Dan and Amy, Matt's friend Brett and my friend Marlane over 8.  Work on the yard and plant a garden -- Nope 9.  Reach my goal weight (only a few more pounds...) (Yes)
Did it! But put those few pounds back on during the holidays. Still a success!
10.  Find a church that we really like -- Nope 11.  Have a healthy and happy little furry family in our teeny tiny little house! :-) (Yes)
Trudy was only broken once this year and the other animals…
