Look back to 2010

Happy New Year!

As we wake up this morning to face the challenges of what is hopefully an exciting New Year filled with happiness for all of us , I thought I would take a look back at the things that shaped my life in 2010, then I will look forward in a separate entry. Here we go in no particular order:

  • Leaving Denny's , Joining Sodexo: After 22 years at Denny's I decided to make a change, it was hard to leave Denny's because of the people I worked with,however the people at Sodexo have treated me very well and I am excited about what the future may bring!
  • Turning 40: I didn't think that would have effected me the way it did, but it is an adjustment quote my sister after my birthday weekend..."Your a just turned 40. This decline is rapid. You better help Sheri clean up that heated cabin.". This after a very long weekend. Those of you who were there will understand
  • Running:  I ran 5 races in 2010, including a marathon and half marathon. 4 out of the 5 races  I beat my personal best.Worked very hard this past year, hope it will carry over to a great 2011.
  •  Top 5 Songs in my ITunes Library for 2010
  1. Make Me- Janet Jackson
  2. Sic Em on a Chicken- Zac Brown Band
  3. American Ride-Toby Keith
  4. The Ballad of Billy the Kid- Billy Joel
  5. Smoke a Little Smoke-Eric Church
  • Family and Friends: Last but certainly not least  I feel I have made a commitment and carried through with that commitment to my family and friends. I have also committed to myself that I would be a better person as well. Changing jobs,Running, cutting back on drinking and taking better care of myself has allowed me to do this. I look forward to the future because of the changes I have made and as my wife will tell is nice to have the old me back!
