Goodbye 2008

This has been an eventful year, here are the highlights:

  • Sadly, aside from moving from Fresno to Clovis, very few memorable events occurred from January through April

  • May was the month David moved out of Fresno

  • June saw:

    • My interviewing with and subsequently being hired by Pelco

    • My being fired from EFG

    • My turning 26 (ugh, on the closer side to 30)



  • July included:

    • Kim and I moving to Fort Collins, CO

    • Kim and I celebrating 3 years of marriage (during the move!)

    • Kim and I finally living in a place with a garage!



  • August was filled with exploration of our new town and settling into the new job

  • Kim started what became her new job in September

  • September also had a visit to the Sustainable Living Fair (see the gallery for pictures, category: friends.)

  • October Kim and I visited Estes Park (look in gallery->vacations for pictures).  This was momentous because it was our first vacation just the two of us since our honeymoon!

  • November was a fun-filled month of:

    • A visit to The Cave of the Winds

    • Traveling to Moab, UT for Thanksgiving

    • Beginning my hobby of homebrewing



  • December was our first christmas away from family, but we did spend it with new found friends

  • And finally we brought in the New Year at Sean's house, with 5 different meads, different beers, and pizza. It was fantastic


Overall it was a very exciting year. And with the new year I do have a couple of New Year's resolutions:

  1. I will blog a minimum of once a month with the intent of once a week.  The goal is to improve my ability to communicate effectively.   The subject of these blog entries will be self evaluation of goal progress and recaps of events.

  2. I will continue the weight loss activities I started in October.

  3. We will close on a house by June 1, 2009.


Happy 2009 everyone!!!
