2013 was not a great year. It was a year of change for Connie and I - some of it by our choice, but a lot of it not at all by our choice. We begin 2014 in a brand new town for the first time in a decade, and with some burdens lifted from our shoulders. Connie is back in school and doing as fantastic as I knew she would. This year has to be better than last year.
Otherwise, I will kick 2014 in the nads and knee it in the face when it doubles over in pain.
To my father and my brother, my sister-in-law and nieces and nephews, and grand-nieces and grand-nephews. To my uncles and aunts and cousins all over. To my father-in-law and mother-in-law, my uncles-and-aunts-in-law and cousins-in-law. To my friends who are family by choice rather than by blood. May you each and every one have a happy, safe, prosperous, inspiring, and productive new year. I love you all.
