I spent christmas out in Victoria with my kids. It was a great time and I spent way too much money spoiling them. All in all it was worth it however. I may not be around that much but I do what I can when i am. It's funny that I still think of them as kids when they are both around 30 yrs old. I guess that's a parental thing where you always think of your offspring as kids no matter how old they get. I even made the complete christmas dinner for them which we ate around Steve's coffee table as he doesn't have a real dining table. Everything was just as good though.
The trip back home after christmas was something else though. Due to some idiot trying to blow up a plane on christmas day, there were new security precautions at the airport and consequently very long lineups. My flight was delayed by about 2 hours because of it. And when I finally did get on the plane they couldn't even turn the in flight entertainment system on because the new security regulations prohibit it. I guess the theory is that some terrorist can use the live map channel and be able to tell where they are so they can do something over a city. Of course that logic is defeated by looking out the window and seeing cities and towns below you.
So I'm waiting for my yearly performance review at work. As yet the manager hasn't mentioned it to so I'm just going to sit tight and see what happens. Not that I care one way or another because I'm capped out on my salary and vacation so there really isn't any incentive for me to do anything to rate something other than a mediocre review. I suppose the only thing that keeps me going a lot of times is the fact that I have worked for so long and developed my habits and work ethics that won't allow me to totally slack off. It will be interesting to see what he says.
My main resolution this new decade is to try and keep my blog up a bit more. Not sure that will happen but it's probably more likely than me trying to lose weight.
