  1. 50

    So, suddenly, I'm 50 years old. Almost a quarter of my life behind me.

    50 really doesn't seem that bad. 40 felt much more like an oh-man-I'm-old-and-have-wasted-my-life event. I'm much happier now than I was then. This has been a great decade for me. I met a wonderful woman, and …

    I'm writing this yearly update later than I usually do. A few things have been unsettled, and I didn't want to write until I had some idea how they would turn out. We had been planning to buy the house we were living in, but that deal fell through in …

    Another annual State of the Kris message:

    The biggest change for my family this year was moving from our little mountain cabin in Dahlonega to a house in Cumming. This puts us closer to the schools where Pebble teaches and where Bailey learns. Instead of spending two hours commuting per …

    Another year behind me. Not a bad year.

    I picked up a new client this year, and reduced my time spent working with the client I've had for the past couple of years. The new client provides opportunities for more interesting work. I've been able to do more mobile and …

  5. 45

    It's another one of those "5" years. I'm now halfway to 90. 90 sounds old, but once upon a time, 45 sounded old too.

    The year has not been easy. We lost my maternal grandmother, Ann Woods, in August. I have many good memories of time spent with her up …

    Another year past. Highlights of the past year:

    We've acquired two more dogs this year: "Blitz," a Miniature Schnauzer, and "Lucy," one of a litter of puppies from our Yorkies Boo and Tweezer. This brings the total to five. We gave away four puppies from two litters this year. One …

    Another year older. I'm solidly in my forties now. It's not too bad.

    We've had a few additions to the family in the past year: we bought two more Yorkshire Terriers, named Boo and Tweezer. About a week and half ago, Boo gave birth to a puppy whom we've named …

    41

    Another year has gone by. I didn't really set many goals for myself last year, so I'm not disappointed by any failures (although I am disappointed that I didn't set any goals). I lost 20 pounds and ran the Peachtree Road Race, but I've regained the 20 pounds.

    The biggest …

  9. 40

    A few weeks ago, I was talking to an older gentleman at a golf course, and I mentioned my 40th birthday was coming up.

    He smiled and asked "It went by quick, didn't it?"

    Yes, it did.
