2004, The Year In Review

Well, I'm just going to leave this a bit brief and highlight some of the things which took place during the year 2004:

  • January : One-Act was once again successful at the Sub-Section Competition
  • February : Matt took a new job doing (of all things) writing software and network administration stuff
  • March : Matt cut back from the Subway thing (and later quit outright in April)
  • April : Matt & Beth found a house they were interested in buying
  • May : Matt started working on a major rewrite of an existing program at work; Beth started her painting job for the summer
  • June : Matt & Beth took a brief vacation in the cities for a few days; Les Miserables was seen
  • July : Matt & Beth moved into their new abode and out of the apartment-style life; Felix (the second cat) entered our lives
  • August : Beth goes back to school; we took a weekend trip to Beth's parents' place
  • September : Matt found out he would not be doing the Three-Act (major) show in Renville due to budget concerns
  • October : Beth & Matt became aunt & uncle for the first time
  • November : We began the bathroom remodel project; Matt prepared at work for the first release of the project started in May
  • December : Matt & Beth took a weekend vacation to the cities and saw 'A Christmas Carol' at the Guthrie in Minneapolis; Christmas

2004 brought many other things, both happy and sad, which aren't mentioned here. Overall, though, it was a good year and hopefully is a sign of things to come in the future. Enjoy the forthcoming year of the rooster (2005)!

December 30, 2004

Eesh! December in Review, I guess!

Well, the month of December has come and gone...with little time to spare for writing. smile In general as an overview:

  • One-Act started and was cast;
  • Christmas celebrations came and went;
  • Spare time was not found in copious amounts. smile

Most spare time between December 1-18 was spent meddling with the bathroom project. For the most part, it has gone well...but is still not complete. When it became somewhat obvious that the project would not be done by the 18th, the plan changed somewhat significantly to allow for fixing everything and doing it all in one shot. The old closet door has been re-framed and covered and new switches and some new electrical work had been in place before the 18th...and for the Christmas celebration held here it looked alright (at least everything worked).

After the 18th (and pretty much through the end of the month), things get so crazy due to travels and work, etc., so not much (yet much) happened during that time.

Christmas this year was another "good one" if you will. We were able to see quite a few people (through the month), and they were all doing well...which is always a Good Thing.
