Merry Christmas everyone!

Hey folks......remember me? How the heck are all you folks in blogger land? I just wanted to pop in to say "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" to all of you. Just to update you:

Joseph - Just completed his first semester at Indiana University. All A's, 2 B's. He's in "The Singing Hoosiers", which he loves. The kids, my parents, and I all went up a couple of weeks ago to see his Christmas concert, which was beautiful. He is home for the next 3 weeks.

Rachael - Doing well as a junior in high school. She has a lead in "Seussical, the Musical" through the local community theater. She's driving a lot and getting excellent grades.

Daniel - Daniel finished the football season, now he's onto wrestling. We have a beautiful brand-new YMCA in town and Daniel is loving it there. He has lots of girls calling him, and his grades are great as usual. His sense of humor keeps us all laughing.

Aaron - Aaron is 3rd grade and doing well. He is loving the "X-treme Arcade" at the Y, which features "Dance, Dance Revolution" and virtual snowboarding. His grades are good, and he is showing signs of growing up! (yikes)

Me - Work is going very well. I am coaching the Quick Recall team, which is fun. Steven and I went to Texas for Thanksgiving, which was great. Steven is switching trucking companies to one that is based Louisville, so he's been here a lot while he's going through orientation and switching things over. It's been great for me having him here....I've gotten really spoiled. It's like we've been living together, which isn't always perfect, but we've really been enjoying it. We went to see "Larry the Cable Guy" and I actually talked him into going to a friend's wedding with me AND the faculty Christmas dinner. I DO miss blogging, but it really is good to be more OFF-line than ON.

I hope everyone is happy and healthy and has a terrific 2009! I'll be back sometime in the new year.

Merry Christmas!

Hey! I was just thinking about sending you an email to wish you a Merry Christmas and see how things were going... and here you are! Good to hear the kids are doing so well - and you too! I hope Steven gets to be around more if he's with a company based in Louisville - it would be like a home base?

I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas and a VERY happy 2009!

Everything is great in Dayton. In fact .. just peruse my blog if you feel like catching up.

And I agree with Trukindog .. a post every once in a while wouldn't take up much of your time. You could even give yourself a "blogging hour" a couple times a week. Just a thought.
