2023 Year in Review
Dec 22, 2023

This year has really been all about Scout… Raising a puppy turned out to be more than we expected. He’s finally starting to settle on his own at night and will wander off to take a nap once in awhile. We did have to do enforced naps for quite awhile. We also hosted Thanksgiving for the family this year and deep fried a turkey for the … 10th time I think.

2021 Year in Review
Dec 15, 2021

It’s been about 10 years since I’ve posted one of these, but I thought it might be good to give it a shot again. So, here goes… 2021 started off with a fair amount of uncertainty. Coming out of the first year of the pandemic in 2020, we’d heard news of a vaccine possibly becoming available. It did, and in March/April, Carrie and I were able to get appointments for our doses.

2011 Year in Review
Dec 23, 2011

I’ve done the year in reviews posts for a while now, so here’s your next installment :) Work I’m still working at Snagajob. Things are going well. This year we received the #1 small business to work for award and had Governor McDonnell visit us. There were some other moments that were quite funny throughout the year as well. We also showed we’re not perfect (that’s one of my favorites).

2010 Year in Review
Dec 31, 2010

Another year is coming to an end today and I’m finally getting around to writing this post, the third in my series of year in reviews. It’s been a long and eventful year. Maybe it would be best to update based on the different parts of my life. Work I started off the year working as a contractor at WordPress HelpCenter. It was a great experience and even though I have now left WPHC, I still think very highly of the company and Alex King, its founder.

2009 Year in Review
Dec 27, 2009

Last year I started a series of Year End Review posts. I figured it would be good to continue it this year as so much has happened in my life in 2009, that it’s likely not many people know where or what I’m doing any longer. Unfortunately the year started off poorly. Early in the year, as the economy tanked, I came really close to losing my job. The guys I was working for fought long and hard though and were able to keep pulling in enough business to allow me to stay on which I greatly appreciated.

2008 Year in Review
Dec 23, 2008

The year is coming to an end, and friends and family keep sending me letters saying what’s been up with them this year. Just tonight I received an email from a friend and they said they had opted to go electronic this year for their letter. That sounded like a pretty good idea. I’ve never written one of these, but I figure my blog is a good platform for it, however I will ask that you bear with me since it’s my first time with one of these :)
