Farewell, 2006

It’s been a mixed year in the balance of triumph and adversity, both personal and otherwise.

A few of the highlights for me were:

  • Presenting Alpha with her high school diploma (brag moment: she brought home a 3.75 GPA in her first semester in UT’s College of Engineering);
  • Several quality+quantity “family time” weeks;
  • Watching Betsy Coleman start her own real estate company;
  • Making several new friends, whose company I enjoy and opinions I value;
  • Holding off harmful changes to the BEP during the legislative session (though the battle continues);
  • Seeing this community pull together to show support for education, from the ground up;
  • Starting this blog, moving to WordPress, and mostly keeping up with it.

Of course, the biggest joy (as it is every year) are the daily reminders that I married the right man. I don’t know why, but I would never have thought that we could be more in love after 19 years of marriage than we were when we went to the altar.

There were, of course, a few disappointments along the way, but there’s no need to list them. :p
