Busy new year

With 2008 behind us, 2009 has gotten off to a busy start! This week (January 20th) is the first week since before Christmas that I’ve worked a full week. It started with a lazy New Years, and then we had about forty people over for Emmett’s first birthday. Apologies to those of you who didn’t get invites, we didn’t have the forethought to rent a larger place, so we crammed into our house!

Emmett just had his one-year checkup, and got his shots which is never fun. But he’s doing good this morning, and his legs don’t look sore at all. Michelle is getting excited to work on her new sewing machine, and I’ve been slowly watching Ewan McGregor & Charlie Boorman‘s Long Way Down which I received for Christmas.

I’ve got the itch to get back on the Buell this spring… Jeff Cook and I are already planning a meetup somewhere in Wisconsin, hopefully we’ll both be able to take a couple days away from the family to ride some miles on our new bikes.

And we’re making plans to meet my folks in Des Moines for Easter brunch, along with going to Kearney, NE for a longer visit after school is out for Jessie.

Hope you all had a great 2008, and here’s to a fun, safe and happy 2009!

-Ben
