Merry Christmas

I wanted to be the first this year to wish you a Merry Christmas. I know it's hard to believe but in three months five days it will be Christmas. You gotta pay attention or your life will scoot by you like a humming bird on caffeinated sugar water.
Just then I paged back through the blog entries since the first of the year and I get a sense of how I spent my year. There are some things I put on my goals that I have not completed yet, but I do still have a few months and most everything is doable. This has been a year of adjustment. As stated before, Jilda spent a great deal of time the last few years caring for her mother and September of last year was brutal on both of us because he mom's condition was in rapid decline.
But we made it through.
This year we've both tried to refocus on our health with walking and yoga. Most days she teaches four classes. I do two classes a week, but I walk almost every day. My weight is down and I feel good. Other areas in which I have made positive progress is playing guitar. Here is something I discovered some time ago about playing. Every once in a while, you have to get away from it. Put the guitar down and don't pick it up. When I started playing again this year, I could do things I could not do before. The notes a cleaner and smoother.
OK, I'm rambling so I'm going to stop now but I am going to play a song or two before I go to sleep.
Maybe we'll go pick out a Christmas tree this weekend :)
