Wow! Long time no Type 2009 off to a fast start

A quick close to 2008:
Christmas was wonderful, we set up a train set for Reece on Christmas eve. Drank wine and listened to music, Christy bought a marble tower run type thing that was a nightmare to set up (maybe it was the wine)
The expression on Reece's face coming down to see his gifts was classic:

New Years eve featured a scallop dinner with friends and some dominoes!

Had two races to start the year, finished 4th in one and 7th in the other and 3rd place for the series.

About two weeks in to the year rates dropped to an all time low and work flowed in. It was so fast I was forced to clean my office and start a new approach for doing appraisal work.

The biggest accomplishment so far has been successful weight loss. My friend Liz recommended a web site called:
they can help you track the calories you are eating. I used it for about 3-4 weeks starting late December with no results, but hey its December what can you expect? My goal was to get down to 200, but now that is only a few pounds away and I still have a nice beer belly left. I ended up losing 11 pounds in 8 weeks by counting calories and exercising. Luckily there was never a need to give up BEER Not sure where the bottom will be, but I will continue to exercise and eat a reasonable portion with modest amounts of cheating.

The Babe got a promotion and is now the office manager. Taylor is crawling and cut two teeth, Reece is about ready for potty training (no arguments on what "about ready" really means!). Reece also started swim lessons, so far so good.

I have had 4 epic mountain bike rides with fellow team mates and friends. The winter season did not offer up any night rides, but got 3-5 good snow rides in.

So far 2009 has shown some promise in the appraisal biz and maybe finish the house?

War out,
