2014, the year ahead

So many things are afoot for me in 2014.....literally when you consider one of them is that Marissa should be walking any day now. That means all sorts of things, not the least of which is replacing some furniture with more baby friendly stuff.

LL and I will also start working on second bundle of joy, whose arrival could take place before the end of the year.

In the spring we will revisit our wedding destination for some r&r, though we don't have any other trips on the horizon.

My new real estate venture will start to take shape in Q1 as I learn the blocking and tackling aspects of the craft while providing my new partners some guidance on growing their firm and generally trying to be a successful business. It should be very rewarding. There's still some CPE I need to do before April, but that should be interesting and possibly even enjoyable.

As always I look forward to another year of helping my consulting clients.  They are great folks with whom I enjoy working and there are some good things happening at all of them.

Softball will be more enjoyable this year as we've removed some less desirable players.  Hopefully the new group will click and softball will return to being as fun as it should be, which hasn't happened for a few years now. It's been fun, don't get me wrong, but there have been one or two bad apples that seem to spoil the bunch. It's tough to merge teams and get rid of the people with huge egos who put themselves above the team. We'll try again though.  Plus our 40 and over team should have another good year after going 16-2 last year.

Hopefully I'll be completely healed from my abdominal strain which would be nice for both softball and golf.  At the end of last year, I really couldn't golf as well as I would like because I couldn't twisted and rotate through the ball.  Hopefully that problem will be behind me this year.

It should be an eventful and interesting year!

You've got some exciting plans for the year! You know me, of course. I'm looking forward to double the amount of cute-kid pics! :-)

Sounds like a very full year indeed!

I love how open you guys with your reproductive plans! When you are working for an employer those things are less likely to be discussed openly.

Oh, don't forget Alexis, LL works for an employer. I doubt any of them read my blog though. Ha!
