Happy New Year! Here's to bringing in 2015!
Here's to a great start to what I hope will be a great and exciting year. Mike has finally moved up here so we can live in the same vicinity, which has been so great for us. I am increasingly stable at a job I greatly enjoy (especially in South County!). But there are lots of unknown matters upcoming --- Mike's job, which team I'll get sent to next (I have a feeling, but I don't know how I'll like it there just yet), where and when we will try to move out, and whether we will get to travel anywhere!
 Last night, some friends came over for a very chill evening of drinking and games and movies. It was good just to unwind, without any big parties (I'm getting old!). We had some cigars out back (Cora was cold so we bundled her up), and then we did what we always do---play beer pong! We ended up playing some Cards Against Humanity also, and watched a movie. Very, very chill. I love nights like that.
And today, we ended up celebrating at my aunt and uncle's Atherton house. Mike discovered a new love for ping pong. My dad also liked playing, and liked to do some special footwork before serving. Pretty funny stuff!
Cheers! And happy 2015! I hope this year will only be better than last year.
