December 2009

28. December, 2009 - wrapping up the year

Yeah, I know it’s not quite the end of the year, but given my recent blogging pace, this is probably going to do it for 2009. Good year or bad? I think, on balance, good. Plenty of good things happened, and plenty of bad. It particularly sucked having six months of pain from a herniated disc in my back, but that’s been fixed so I’m willing to put it in the plus column.

Looking back on last year’s wrap-up, I had two major projects left on the house. One of those, the bathroom, is nearly done, and might still be completed before 2010 rolls in.

The new crop of politicians in Washington have nearly worked out health care reform. Not as much change as I’d feared, but more than I’d hoped for.

On the travel front, there’s new travel restrictions. I have a ticket that expires in March from a trip I had to cancel last year, plus enough miles for a free flight, but I’m not sure if I’m going to be travelling by air this year or not. I really need to get out to WWDC this summer, but perhaps this is a year to do that as a road trip.

Anyway, on balance I’m calling it a good year, but it could really go either way. And heck, there are still a few days remaining, so the scales could still tip.

12. December, 2009 - been busy

Sorry about the lack of posting lately. Been busy with work, and the bathroom remodel at home has things disrupted enough that I haven’t been in much of a mood for writing lately.

So don’t be surprised if some of these links are “old news.” They are. But hey, it’s better than nothing, right?
