It has been nearly a year since my last post. A few times over the past year I meant to make a post but I felt it would be disrespectful to bump my brother off of the top spot. However, if there is one thing I have learned in the past year it is that life does indeed go on. Let me catch you up as best I can…
On the family front: This past year we had two weddings, one birth, and a funeral, a net gain of two new family members. You gotta take the good with the bad, I guess. My youngest sister is off to Cameroon with the Peace Corps in a few months. Makes you wonder just what you are doing with your life that is so worthwhile.
On the work front: After doing my own thing for a while, I have gotten hooked up with a startup that handles search engine marketing for small businesses. It is an interesting opportunity and I had to take it.
On the poker front: I have played almost zero poker in the past year. Immediately after my last post I made a few grand online but was not into it so I devoted myself to other pursuits. A few weeks ago I played a tournament in Atlantic City, my first tournament in about 8 months. I won the thing for $3K, so I guess I still have some mojo.
On the personal front: I have emerged from a bit of a fog over the past few months and feel good about life. My parents are coming to visit and we are off to my sister’s graduation from college. Should be a great week!
On the canine front: New Doggy! Bogey is the joy of our lives. We got him in December, he is a mutt mix of golden lab and who knows what else. We were going to name him Golden but I did not really want to immediately think of Kelsey every time I saw my dog. So we named him Bogey after Bogus Basin, a ski area where Kelsey skiied a lot. Not a direct, in-your-face reminder, but a nice tribute, I think. Bogey is a tennis ball obsessed playful one year old now, and I miss him now that I am doing the 9 to 5 thing.
