Yesterday was February 1st. My last blog post was December 17th. I didn’t intend to take six weeks off from blogging – it just sort of happened that way. I actually received an email earlier this week from one of my readers asking if everything was o.k. and letting me know that I was missed in the blogosphere. I assure you that I will resume regular posts in the next few days, but in the meantime, let me bring everyone up to speed on what’s been going on here…
One of the Christmas gifts I received was the personalized blueberry Pop Tarts (a/k/a the breakfast of champions) from my wife. Not only was this gift very very cool, it was very very yummy. If you want to get some personalized Pop Tarts for someone special, you can do so here.
I live and practice in Spartanburg, SC, and we received several significant snowfalls. Now, in the South, significant means only a few inches, but we actually receive 8" during one "blizzard", which resulted in the schools being closed for an entire week. The kids got to go sledding for the first time, which was lots of fun. Fortunately, my office was only closed a couple of days as a result of this winter weather.
January saw three birthdays in my immediate family, as two of my three children and I all had birthdays within a nine day period. I am coaching the church league basketball teams for both my oldest son and my daughter. Both teams were undefeated in January, and both of my children had big games during the month. We appear to be headed for successful seasons.
Not only is January one of the busiest months in a family law practice, but it also begins the "booking season" for my speaking engagements for the year. For instance, I gave a presentation for the South Carolina Bar, and I have upcoming engagements in Nashville and Chicago among other places. I have also been involved in several professional organizations that were particularly active last month.
I could go on, but you get the idea. Things have been hectic (in a good way) here. I look forward to getting back to blogging, and I thank each and every one of you for being my readers.
