As much as I joke around online and offline I’m also rather serious about many things in life including Christmas. For me it’s a time of self reflection and looking back and ahead while still being in the present.
2014 was quite a remarkable year, not just because “Die Mannschaft” won the World Cup in Brazil.
There was a lot of moving going on:
My girlfriend and her two boys moved in with me in Westminster. Even though it was meant as a temporary move it was very nice to see how well we all co-existed under one roof together. We had a lot of non-dysfunctional family time at its best. Eventually Michelle found a new home in Boulder and moved back to her stomping grounds. This left me thinking and I found a house closer to Denver that matched my needs and wants much better than my first home in Colorado. I’m not a gypsy but it was time for something new. It was very hard to say good bye to my wonderful neighbors that I see much less now. They’re like family to me (more on family later on). It was nice to put the home into the hands of some close friends that love it very much. Thanks to Barb and Eric for very smooth and classy transaction. Off I went and took the plunge into neighborhood that is in transition and will develop into something that I intend to be part of. This is a process in the making and it will be a few years until we see how well this works out.
