December was a whirlwind as usual. I had a lot of database work and we had a couple Christmas parties etc... the usual. The weekend before Christmas we headed down to Albuquerque, and spent the weekend celebrating with Kelsey and Sara. My parents, of course, got in on the fun as they are back from Japan. Josh (Mike's eldest) and Carla just happened to be in Albuquerque that weekend too so we got to go have a visit with Carla's Mom and Step-dad at their spectacular house in the foothills of the Sandias! If I can find some photos I'll share.
Since Monday Josh and Carla were flying back to Phoenix, and we were driving down the same day, we stole the baby Kaylee for the drive. They were worried that she would be ornery in the car for that long, but I guess it's true, children act differently for their parents than for other people... She didn't squirm once and was perfect the whole way... And I had to take a moment to thank whoever invented those baby foods that you just squirt into the baby's mouth, no spoon, nothing.... Wonderful especially when you are in the car.
Unfortunately, we had hoped to do some hunting or even shooting on the weekend, but Josh got a headache and so we stuck around close to home. Still a great visit for us! Late Sunday, we headed back to Albuquerque for the night and Monday Convoyed to our ranch with my parents, and Monica (my sister) and David drove down from Northern Colorado to spend New Years together. We played games starting Monday night and didn't stop until Monica left late New Years Day. Aside from Monica coming down with a stomach flu on New Years Day, that was a fun visit too. After my parents left on the 2nd, and I had to get back to work.... that was a hard transition. I still wanted to play.
Our second big effort currently is that we are starting a new stock trading class with Revolutionary Trading. I've loved their style for the past couple of years since we have discovered them. We decided to be part of their elite trading class for the first quarter of 2014. After we decided that the time was right for us now, they announced that this will be his last year, and perhaps his last quarter teaching, so I'l doubly excited. This starts at the end of the month and I am trying not to commit to anything, so we can stay dedicated to these to ventures... Yep, pretty difficult for me.
So all told if we can focus on Trading classes, eating Paleo and keeping up with my work, that is enough for the next few months! Hope you all are having as much fun!
