2014 by the Numbers
Happy New Years Eve everyone! I know I just did a 2014 Grit and Polish recap yesterday, but since this is my favorite holiday of the whole year, I figured one more post is in order!
We don't tend to celebrate New Years Eve all that glamorously, but I love the idea of a fresh-start, a clean-slate and the potential of what's to come. But before we ring in the new year, I wanted to do a quick look back at 2014 by the numbers:
1: Number of moves
0: Number of houses we've bought
4: Number of permits closed at the Ravenna House
8: Pounds Wilder has gained in the past 12 months
5: Times the repairman has been out to the Ravenna House for appliances
6: Airplane rides Wilder has taken
88: Age of the Ravenna House
1: number of sidesewers replaced at the Ravenna House
0: linear feet of fence built at the Ravenna House
1000: dollars given to us in rebates for switching our windows to double-pane
1: Number of mustaches Garrett has grown this year
1 million: books Wilder owns (estimate)
24: Bottles of wine purchased in Sonoma
4: Number of offers we've submitted on houses
1: Number of offers we've had accepted on houses.
More on that last one to come in the new year...!!! Hope you've had a great 2014, and here's to an even better 2015!!!
