This past year has had some big changes in our lives- Pat changed jobs after thirteen and a half years with the Bay Foundation. I lost mine, and then decided to go out on my own. That’s had a pretty big ripple effect and we’re still figuring out what the new normal is around here. I imagine the new year will be continuing along that path. I have a few things in mind that I’d like to see happen in the new year, but I don’t count them as resolutions as much as I do the effect of taking the last few weeks off. Many of them are actually along the lines of what my friend Erin wrote the other day. I really couldn’t say it better myself.
