The sun is setting on 2009 yawl

From the "Letters to my fam" Series

While I share my usual ramblings to my family lets have coffee shall we?Good morning mi familia. I seem to wake up before the crack of dawn when my house is silent. I dont mind the quiet but the quiet itself seems to wake me. I've got a meeting scheduled with the workout room in a little while, I'm feeling the pull to nature's prozac, cardio! I've already started making a mental list of what I want to do in 2010, too early? Nah, there are 5 days left in 2009, I'll make the best of them but I am very ready for the New Year. Lots of things to look forward to, a possible trip to Hawaii in May (crossing everything I have that this trip includes me getting on a plane headed west), getting my kitchen ready for new appliances and floors, (mom will you believe this, they've sent me a note saying its scheduled for march, I know I know), work is going to be interesting as my "team" is gaining 4 new members, not a bad thing given these times of layoffs and whatnot, my workout zone needs me to get back in it, hence the workout room today, lets see......personal growth. Well I always do that. At least I think I do. We all do, without even meaning to, unless we're sleeping through the days and not paying attention. Mom got me "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch, for Christmas. I've almost read this entire book in two days. I'll finish today. This will be one I keep, its going on "the shelf". Only my favorites go on the shelf. Or books I havent read yet. Or books given to me as gifts. What I mean is, the luxury of having a Half Price Books nearby is that I can get a few books for ten dollars, read them, and then sell them back and get more. But if they fall into those 3 categories, they stay with me. I will now share what we all would like to know, so that we can wake up fresh each morning. I hope everyone had a delightful Christmas, and you're still enjoying the weekend. Monday calls early, I suppose I'll answer.


Love to the masses,

And a word from Randy Pausch:"The brick walls are there for a reason," he said during his lecture. "The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something
