Generally, a good year for one and all.
Laura's consulting company, Aleami Marketing Services, has gained traction from a few very good clients and things look promising for the early months in 2010. She is also an adjunct teacher for the University of Iowa. Meanwhile, Alex's contract work with the City Manager's Office in Cedar Rapids ended. He has since moved on to help with the Executive MBA program at the University of Iowa. Like Laura, he is also an adjunct teacher at the business school.
Kids are well and busy with all sorts of activities to include piano, tennis, soccer, basketball, cross country, cub scouts, and a few other activities and events of all sorts. Unfortunately through all the activities and changes we never got holiday cards in the mail.
What started out as a grim looking year, turned out to be a year of generally positive change. Our personal economic outlook, like the National economy, is cautiously optimistic. We believe we'll sell our house in Mankato at some point, and when that happens things will be right with the world. Maybe 2010 will be the beginning of a more stable and enlightening decade? We'll see.Best wishes to one and all and have a terrific New Year!!! The salutation for 2010 is this: If you can't LIVE LARGE, then you might as well stay in bed!! Cheers!!!
