Weekly Update

Big day today in our house as Cory turns 20, which means that I have officially survived the teen years and now am the mom of two 20somethings. Greg turns 25 next Wednesday, thus this week and next are a blur of chocolate cake and memories. The candles get lit, and I get flashbacks of earlier birthdays. And though there is not a balloon in the room, I still can picture them, as well as a rush of faces through the years in my own version of the movie Boyhood. By the way, I am sticking with my claim that I am 27, no matter how old the boys are. Cory started his new semester at college on Tuesday, so we celebrated Monday night; it’s only the second time that we are not celebrating on the “really really” day, but life does march on!

Faithful Reader

We hope that 2015 is off to a wonderful start for you! Many of us are braving the cold as we get back to work, responsibilities and the gym --- the latter being a necessary evil after way too many Christmas cookies and couch time. January also is a time for taking stock of life. For many, the holiday break provided downtime to think about what really matters --- and ways to make those things more a part of our lives. We've been talking in the office about setting realistic personal goals for the year --- not resolutions, but things that enrich our lives and provide fulfillment.
