Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

I say that with as much optimism as I can muster. The holidays as relaxing as they were hectic. We got to visit with our families, celebrate with friends, and spend some quality time with our daughter. As we closed out 2008, we realized that we ended it on a good note.

Entering 2009 has been a mixed bag. I, for one, am thankful to have a wonderful little girl who is, apparently, enamored with me. Thankful to have a loving wife and family. And, thanks to this morning, thankful to be working.

I am saddened that some of my friends have gotten laid-off. The poor economic times had not yet knocked on my door. Now, I am aware of the trying times. I don’t know what changes this will lead to, but I am sure that we will be hunkering down a bit. No more diamond-studded swimming pools for us. No more opulent dinners in Tahiti over the weekends.

Anyway, to our friends, good luck. To our families, we love you. To our pets, stop peeing on the carpet!
