Here’s to a Happy 2010 New Year!!


As 2009 winds down, I am amazed at how quickly the year has come and gone. Just over the last 2 months, I flew over 30,000 miles traveling to Shanghai, Beijing, Boston, Seattle, San Diego, back to Seattle and Las Vegas, completed and presented various final projects for grad school and of course at the same time attended all the important things of my work place and found a little time in between for friends and family.

I don’t know about doing another 1/2 marathon, but we are thinking about doing another liver cleanse in a few weeks actually.

With the recession, high unemployment, and lots of unexpected change, it’s been a challenging year for sure but I honestly think it’s going to be ok.

I wish you all a safe, happy and prosperous 2010!
