In a few hours 2012 will be fading away and 2013 will be upon us. 2012 was a year of recovery for me after a couple of years of intense treatment. I can eat almost normally now and have not had anything major happen over the last year which is a big step for me. In looking to 2013 my hope is that I can bring some stability to my life and to my family’s lives. Life by itself is enough to deal with without being concerned for a loved one’s health.
In this new year I would like to get involved in a couple of activities that hopefully can get me out of the house. I would love to be apart of the Austin WordPress Meetup again and would love to be involved in my church again as well. I would also like to do some money earning as well but we will have to see how things pan out.
I think if I would like to get anything out of 2013 it would be purpose. I have made it through a lot of really difficult situations in the past few years. I am still getting back on my feet but I know I went through those things for a reason. I would like to figure that reason out this next year and do something with it.
If anything, I have learned in 2012 that God can bring me through anything. I want to carry that thought into 2013 and apply it other areas in my life and help others do the same. If anything, I would like to share hope with others that may be in situations simliar to mine. Purpose and hope are powerful things, they helped to get me where I am today.
So my wish has come true and the ailing Washington Mutual has been scooped up by other bank Chase (or JP Morgan Chase as they like to be called). It seems that the FDIC swooped in and shut them down and Chase bought up what was left (mostly the depositors like me).
With that my wife and I have around 15 accounts with WAMU JP Morgan Chase. Obviously we will hold on to the higher interest savings accounts that we have with WAMU and now I don’t need to open a new business account with Chase as my WAMU biz account will transfer over.
I would say that the only unfortunate things about the transition is that they say that the “systems” should be integrated by the end of next year.
