Oh yeah....my blog. I almost forgot.
So, everyone has been blogging about how their lives are back to "normal" (whatever that means), and I figured I better get my 2 cents in too. Otherwise, Laundry Lady will drop me from her links list. Or maybe I'm an honorary listing since I'm her husband? And I know her password...teehee.
So, life for me is back to "normal." I'm fortunate enough to work for a company that shuts down between Christmas and the New Year. So, it's sort of like being in school. Only not. But I digress.
The week off was a fun one. If you know me, then you probably have already read Laundrypile and know that we did a lot of late nights, nothing, sleeping all over the house, etc. I did get in a quick snowboarding trip to a local ski resort. That was fun. Except for one bone jarring face plant, I'd say it was a nice outing. I hope to get out more this year with my new board.
Work is back in full swing. Last year I started into a new area with a different job title (someday I'll have to blog about job titles and how ridiculous they can be), and I'm really liking it. This year looks to be a busy one, but that is good. Job security and whatnot. Perhaps another trip to Denver, CO will happen later this month. If so, the Project Manager and I will try to get in some time at this place. That would rulio. But I digress...again.

No, I was using it correctly...I think.
Anyway, I am already thinking about this upcoming year...where we will take a family vacation, what I will be doing in work and ministry, whether I am going to start running again. The door is wide open and the possibilities are endless.
For the first few days of 2006, I was lamenting the passing of 2005. I'm one that always looks back on the past with rose colored glasses. Things always seemed to be better than they probably were. Heth has called me on that a lot. I'll be remembering something and I'll be thinking it was all really awesome, and she'll bring me back to reality and proceed to remind me of how things really were.
But I'm past my sorrow for losing 2005. It's gone. Goodbye dear 2005.
HELLOOOOOOO 2006!!!!!!! Woot Woot!
