13 And Glamorous!

This weekend  I got some great shots of my oldest daughter Lauren. I consider this a great achievement for a couple of reasons, number one being she posed willingly for numerous photos and had fun doing it.  In the past she has always been resistant to getting her photo taken.  I had managed previously to get some shots of her and a friend while they were goofing off being silly, dressed up in her 8 year old sister's dress up clothes, but other attempts were unsuccessful.

Life is full of opportunities - We just need to have the courage to grasp them.

Could the New Year have started out any Worse?
I brought in the New Year sick and still have that stubborn lingering cough going on.  I finally started feeling better, and began making plans to meet goals set for this year, and BAM!! 13 fellow employees were let go, and everyones salary was cut by 10% firm wide.  10%!?  And with the salary cut, I have taken on more responsibilities at work...... great!!  Don't get me wrong,  I am very grateful for the experience this will provide me, but I was hoping my salary would be increasing this year, not the other way around.  Such is life, I suppose.

Day One - 2010

Day one of the new year, and I am sick. Just Great!
How many others are starting out their new year feeling a little under the weather? A great many I would dare say. I'm sure countless people across the world woke from a long night of partying, hung over from their excesses the night before. Celebrating the end of one year, and welcoming the start of another.
As for me, I stayed home safe and sound surrounded by those I love the best. My family. There is no place else I would have rather been.
