It seems like when I get into the groove of posting on a regular basis, I just get back out again and it’s months before I get to posting something. I need to find some kind of speech-to-text plugin for WordPress so I can just ramble into the microphone and have it come out on my blog!

So much has happened over the past month or so, some good, some bad… the biggest is the change we made for the kids’ school – they are now going to Catholic school. It was not an easy decision to make, but one that we are ultimately feeling really good about. I’m pretty sure the kids are not feeling AS good as we are, but hopefully, they will look back at our decision and agree that it was the right one.

I did a couple of photo shoots, posted them to my blog: as well as some other pictures that I have on my other site So far, I’m somewhat pleased with the picture taking, but there are many aspects I want and need to work on. One step at a time… I know, but in this world of instant gratification, I just want to shoot a picture and have it perfect straight out of the camera (yeah, get real).

Amazingly, I just got an email from a friend that I haven’t spoken to in at least fifteen years. It was good to hear his voice and hopefully, another fifteen years won’t pass before we get together for a beer. It’s amazing who you can find when you start using websites like FaceBook, Classmates, etc. SO MANY fun memories. It really makes you think about how quickly time passes and how easy it is to lose touch with people. I don’t like the fact that I’m not good about picking up the phone and reaching out to people. Perhaps 2009’s resolution will be to get back in touch with those friends that I’ve lost touch with?

Finally, it looks like I have a new band (and I mean FINALLY)… right now we’re a trio, but with any luck we’ll be a quartet after tonight’s practice. I’d like to be out and playing by end of Feb / early March… so stay tuned!

That’s all for now – keep in touch, and I’ll resolve to do the same.
