I hope you all had a good new year. I had a fun one with the friends… although it was a little hazy due to all the drinking before hand. I think that we even counted down after midnight already passed.

Got any resolutions for 2009? I’ve never made any new year resolutions, mostly because I’m a firm believer in always trying to become a better person. BUT if I had to choose one, I guess I would say to be a better father. Kristy is really teaching me so much about what it means to be a father and I think it’s probably the most difficult thing a man can do. Being a father takes some serious effort – as in life changing effort! She is definitely opening my eyes constantly and making me realize that being a father is less about setting ground rules and being a firm dictator, but more about empathy and guidance. I sound old!

Speaking of old… look at how old this blog is!! If you count the time when I was blogging before I made sileightymania.com, I think this blog would be 10 years old. If not, then this entry marks the start of it’s 9th year. Are you kidding me??? Where has all the time gone?
