2014 In Review - for better or worse

Wow, I just cant believe its actually the last day of 2014 today!  It has been a game changing year for sure not only for me personally but also for the United States and the World at large.

For myself, if you read this blog, you know that In April I made the decision to have bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve) and on September 2nd, I actually went through with it and as of today, December 31st, 2014 I am down 65 lbs total from my pre surgery weight of 348 lbs!

In December, actually about a week ago, Xmas Eve, I got a huge diamond engagement ring from my long time (14 years) boyfriend, which made me very happy!

In the world, early on in 2014, we had to deal with these assholes Isis hacking off peoples heads.  I dont know about you but there is nothing there but sand and people that live in sand, why would anyone that isnt a soldier want to even be there?

There was the Malaysia airliner that went down somewhere in or near the indian ocean, never to be found again and another one later in the year that was shot down over the Ukraine.  I would stay off that airlines for sure.

We had huge mudslides in washington state that killed 40 people, what a way to go right?  Oh and how can we forget the Ebola scare in the US?  Unfortunately its still raging over in africa but didn't come anywhere near what a lot of people thought would happen on US soil.

We had Robin Williams suicide, NFL Players beating their wives and children, Bill Cosby rape allegations.  The deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner that lead to people rioting (protesting?) in the streets and even worse, the execution of several police officers.

On a better note, we also had more states open their minds and hearts to gay marriage and a few more that legalized marijuana.

We had the GOP take over the senate, the economy start to get better and I read yesterday that the gas prices are at the lowest price ($58.00 a barrel) since 2009 (i'm thinking the gas prices should be lower then, maybe under $2.00 a gallon)

And to end the year right, Sony pictures gets slammed by Lil Kim for a comedic movie about trying to assassinate him.  What a little bitch he is!  I guess he still doesn't realize that his whining made that stupid movie a smash hit because NOW everyone wants to see it!

All that come this way, Have a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!
