I didn’t want New Year’s Day to slip by without some looking back on the year that was 2009, and here I am with about 20 minutes left in the day. So what did 2009 bring me? Some awesome things: a daughter that is the best thing ever, professional successes beyond my wildest dreams, and a spouse that keeps me centered on both things in turn. It also brought some sadness: the death of my grandfather, and other extended family troubles.
But overall, I think 2009 treated me pretty well, and 2010 is shaping up to be even more exciting already. So many amazing things coming this year: new book coming in March/April, a new still-secret-but-almost-ready-to-launch project, some fun travel, and hopefully positive news on both mine and Betsy’s tenure decisions.
Thanks for everything, 2009, but 2010 is gonna kick your ass.
