Happy 2012!

Danielle has this theory that our lives are a lot like the Star Trek films. Even numbered films are great, while odd numbered films…could best be forgotten. Looking back over the past 10 years or so, I’d have to say she may be onto something.

The good news is we managed to make it through 2011. Which, for those mathematically challenged, is an odd numbered year. It definitely had it’s share of things to be forgotten. Let’s see, we were robbed, we had mass lay offs at work, combined with no raise, combined with a rather large furlough for the latter half of the year…and those are just the high points.

However it wasn’t all bad. We did have our second great Disney trip and that in itself had too many highlights to fit into this post. And, well, with the economy being the way it is, I guess you could count the fact that I still have a job as a good thing.

Definite good news is the fact that things are really looking up at work.

In any case. I’m more than thrilled to be kicking off an even numbered year. The good news has already started with the announcement that our paychecks are indeed returning to their unfurloughed state and we’ve had a few big projects sign just in time for the new year.

So bring on 2012. I’m more than ready.
