Ending a great year, beginning another...

2005 ends in about 4 hours and I must say that it was a good year. Got a lot done on the farm, released a lot of updates of products at work and got to watch my girls grow up a lot. They talk and walk and think and ask lots of questions... These years are flying by and I'm having a hard time slowing down to witness them.

This year, Jennifer and I water proofed our basement, built a 3 acre fence lot (manually) and enjoyed our country living every day. Lizzie and Jazzy have grown so much that I don't know what I'm going to do. I have talked to Lizzie about placing bricks on her head so that she'll stop growing, but she won't let me. :) It's hard to believe that Lizzie will turn 4 years old this coming Tuesday, wow! Her and Jazzy are best friends and we are very blessed with such polite and pretty little girls. Work was quite good this year also. I have really accepted the fact that I do know what I'm talking about sometimes and I think people are starting to respect my PM role. I started working at the company 5 years ago and didn't know a whole lot. This year was the year that I really opened my eyes and realized how much I do know and how (very) much I still don't know. Technology is so damn fast and I love doing what I do and being able to keep up with it at it's own pace. All in all, we released a lot of updates on many of our products, wrapping up a new version of an older product and customers seem to be happy.

Next year is going to be a great year. Jennifer and I have a lot of projects that we want to do on the farm when spring roles around. We want to build a deck that wraps around the front of our house, we're already planning to build more fence, and most importantly we are going to redo our electric so that we can run electricity to the barn (all-weather extension cords start to get expensive during the rugged months). After dealing with the cold days and nights with frozen water buckets and long walks to the field, it is obvious that we will also need water lines ran to the barn and fence line. Nothing a little PTO enbabled trencher couldn't handle. :) I must say (briefly) that work is very exciting right now. We are working on things that will suprise a lot of people and I am so happy to be a part of it. Data Dynamics will be making a lot of noise this year and I'm pumped!! You'll see...

Til 2006... and Happy New Year!!
