Looking back at what I wrote for 2010 and I accomplished all my goals and even more.
I am ending the year with an upbeat note. My family is all together again and I have the love of a good dog, Randy.
One of the most unusual things that happened was a person from my young adulthood, Sheldon K. had called me in August. We talked quite a bit for about six weeks and then he disappeared into the aether, never to return.
I spent time with superheros and Elvis from Breezy Point's Bayside Grill.
My business has not taken off as well as I had hoped, but I will not give up on it. The economy is fragile right now. I am still waiting for a check for work I did for a company back in May. I probably won't see any of it but I did trade up for a "Solidworks" 3D program I can learn and make money on.
I still beat everybody in Scrabble without even trying. It is worse when I am really tired and I come up with high point words at the end. I am glad that I don't play with people who are competitive.
I am currently working at Cummins Power Generation ( http://www.cummins.com/ ) documenting their 870,000 sq. ft. manufacturing area and will be redesigning their productions lines. I really enjoy doing that sort of work.
I got to ski for the first time this century. I am so happy for that. I took my boys, Garrett (16) and Jeremy (13) and we had a blast.
I believe 2011 will be a good year for me.
I will write about it later.

I have been unemployed for over 6 months. I am working on three large projects:
- Establish my business, CAD vantage, and make it a viable cashflow for my family.
- Get my certification as associate in project management (CAPM).
- Get bariatric surgery to lose weight and stave off ever getting diabetes.
All this before May 1, 2010.
Quite a task for me. Can I do it? I hope so. I want to.
