  2. I definitely think that you LIVED alot in 2013. While you might not think that it showed up in your did actually make quite alot. And just like you traded this (craftiness) for that (family-time)...which is never a bad thing. I did alot of TV watching too...too much Sherlock, Doctor Who and The Paradise for me. I think I spent 1/2 of my vacation rewatching the same episodes, just so I could swoon/cry/laugh.
