When I turned five years old my Grandma and Grandpa mailed me a personalized birthday song.
It was Captain Zoom, the song came on a vinyl record and it went something like this (replace “Big Guy” with your own name):
Working from home has its advantages and disadvantages.
(Many of which I am sure will become excellent fodder for future posts.)
Recently I left my desk and headed into the kitchen for a refill of some kind.
Today marks seventeen years.
Seventeen years of marriage to the most awesome person that has ever graced my life.
Seventeen years of love.
Seventeen years of hate.
Seventeen years of hurt.
Seventeen years of healing.
If there is anything that I have learned in these past seventeen years, it is this:
The New Year is here.
I wanted to write this yesterday — makes sense right? — but today is better than never.
That’s the latest New Year advice my wife gave me.
It turns out that having a personal blog is going to take more brain power than I first realized.
But it’s all good.
I’ve been thinking all week about what to post about. With Christmas this week — tomorrow — I figured I would write a little something with a holiday slant.

I remember when I first started working with 8BIT several years ago. I think it was John Saddington who wrote about it.
He likened the small business startup work of 8BIT to that of an RPG video game like Final Fantasy. Everyone had an important part to play in the quest.
And it’s true.
