In which I look to see what I did that was noteworthy in the past year.
We went to Orlando in January since both kids were free. We went to Harry Potter World for the first time and also visited Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
I turned 50 in February. We went to DC to have lunch at Old Ebbitt Grill since I have wanted to go there for years and had never gone. It was worth the trip.
I will call May spring otherwise I won’t have much to say besides celebrating my daughter’s birthday in March,
In May I attended the Maryland/Delaware Library Association Conference where my pub quiz team won first place. I did not really contribute at all.
At the end of May I traveled with my wife to her conference in Baku. I loved the city. More people should visit. It is a nice place and is not overwhelmed with tourists yet.
We also did a 24 hour layover in Istanbul and toured the city.
In June I went to the American Library Association conference in DC where I met Henry Winkler.
I also went to another Bowling for Soup concert
We went to Kentucky to visit family and went kayaking
Not much notable for fall. My daughter went back to school so we were empty nesters again. I went to Kentucky over Veteran’s Day weekend to visit my brother and his family. My sister also visited one day and then I had lunch with her in my hometown. I went to multiple middle school basketball games to watch my niece play, went bowling and just had a nice relaxing weekend.
Trudging my way through December now. Only 4 more days of work after today and I head to Kentucky for a nice long break.
