With the big home sale, the big move and the big home buy, 2012 was an incredible year. I have much to be thankful for – a great life, a great wife and a great family. The kids keep me on my toes. They drag me out of my crotchety moods and push me towards acting like I’m young. They are active, creative and unpredictable. I am so pleased they have minds of their own. Take for example the elections – three kids voted in three straw polls at school for president. One voted for Romney, another for Gary Johnson and the third for Obama. I love it. And I’m not even concerned for the third – she’ll learn how to read someday.
