11:59:60 … 2008 gives us an extra second of fun

Happy New Year!!!
We rang out 2008 + 1 second this evening with our good friends and neighbours Pam and Tara. Couple glasses of champagne and some noise makers … who needs the big crowds!

Last year we looked ahead and figured 2008 to be a tough year for us … and so it was in almost every aspect. We did not meet all the goals of last year, but we did not too bad and 2009 is right there waiting for us. I weened my hours back at work and spent more time with the boys, we got home for Brendan’s wedding – but we did not get out as much as we hoped.
So for this year…
1. Continue the family fun
The past year we started to participate in more things as a family unit, this year I hope to do continue that.
2. Owen takes to the potty
Owen has started to be interested in going on the toilet … so hopefully we can secure this routine.
3. Sports
Both Joe and Owen have now been skating a couple times. Joe’s feet are starting to fit his skates and Owen is growing into Joe’s old pair … so while we did not get out a lot last year I hope to get out more this year. We will also have both boys in soccer starting right away … how fun is that eh?
4. Exercise in general
Yes … seems age is catching up to me. And the “Iron Gym” that the kids bought me I guess is intended to push me into losing some new found … rolls?? We also hope to start rollerblading a little more … the dog likes it 🙂
5. Get to 2010
With two kids … and Melissa turning 30 … will make this goal the most “fun” of all.
Well, raise a glass to 2008 … and then lets bring on 2009 …
