I know it's been pretty quiet around these parts, but I haven't gone into hibernation entirely. It's been nice to lightly unplug a bit for a few days. I've been taking a little time to recharge the batteries and relax a little. I've had Masidaughter with me for almost the entire time since coming back from Taiwan on 12/10 and it's been great to have so much time with her, after being gone so much of the past few months with all the travel.
At the moment, we've also got the company of my girlfriend, which is a wonderful treat- especially this time of year. We've been just hanging out and enjoying some "down time". With the weather likely to get pretty icky over the next few days, it's a good thin we got our time at the beach in yesterday.
Since rain is likely tomorrow and Sunday, it's kinda looking like we'll be going to a few museums and maybe a movie or two.
So far 2009 doesn't stink too much. Hopefully YOUR 2009 is off to a good start as well. Here's to seeing a great new year and the beginning of some real and sustainable economic recovery. Hope you are all getting a chance to get a little relaxation of your own.
