Happy New Year everyone!!! I hope you all had a great New Years Eve ringing in the dawn of brand new beginnings with loved ones!
My hubby and I actually went out to a new year’s eve party! We usually stay in, order take out and watch movies but we were invited out by some great friends and it turned out to be a super fun night.
Looking back at 2017, I must say it was a pretty great year overall. I am not the type to dwell on things that didn’t got my way so I choose to look at the positive. Even though I lost a job in 2017, I gained the opportunity to work on my business, gather more cat sitting clients and spend more time doing things that I love. The lack of a steady paycheque was scary but with a supportive husband who was able to carry the weight of our living expenses, I was lucky enough to take that time to figure out what I wanted to do.
Kitty had a great year as well! She filmed a commercial for a brand new pet food company (waiting for the release soon!) and made many new friends and won several contests!
Overall, it was a great year which brought us good health, new opportunities and a lot of great friends!
For 2018, I am looking forward to working on my business. I will trying to streamline things a bit more as I will be returning to a full-time 3 month contract starting Jan 2. That will be keeping me busy for the first few months of the year. I will also be taking on more cat sitting clients as well as freelance writing assignments. The idea is to build a cash reserve so I can focus on the business once my contract is done.
It is also our 10 year wedding anniversary this year! We would love to be able to go on a small holiday to celebrate it! Considering we haven’t been on vacation since we got married in 2008, it would be a welcome getaway.
I am hopeful it will be a great new year filled with wonderful possibilities and opportunities to make our dreams come true!
