Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you get to spend some time with family and friends and that Santa is good to everyone.
It has been a few weeks since I last wrote and I wanted to answer a few common questions I have been getting.
The new job has been awesome and it already feels like I have settled in. 2015 is going to a lot of fun as I help grow the marketing of an up and coming tech company.
Let’s get to the questions.
Q1: Now that you are working are you still going to blog?
A1: Yes, yes and yes. I know I have been absent from the Like A Dad scene, but I have no intentions of shutting it down. To be honest, I am never close to my computer anymore and when I am, I don’t feel like writing. I will get back into it in the new year. I have a lot of stories to share.
Q2: Did you ever get that shirt you wrote about?
A2: No, I did not. The joke of a company was unable to figure out how to do simple ecommerce and get it delivered to my house. Oh well, I would suspect they go out of business.
Q3: How are the boys?
A3: They are both great. They are both loving their time away from home whether it be school or daycare. We really lucked out and could not be more pleased. Hard to imagine a few months ago we were so worried about finding quality care close to home.
Q4: Will North Korea target your blog?
A4: Probably not.
Q5: What are you doing for Christmas?
A5: It is our first Christmas back in Toronto and that means a lot of family time that does not involve a plane. It will be a lot of fun and still be relaxing. I hope you are all getting to do the same.
Q6: Any fun plans over the holidays?
A6: My sister is visiting, we have some World Junior tickets, a night out with my wife and whatever we do for New Year’s. I can’t wait to enjoy it all.
Q7: What was your biggest highlight of 2014?
A7: Easily the move from Halifax. I think our family pulled it off beautifully without any major problems. Again, it is amazing to think where our life was at this time last year and where it is now. A lot can happen in a few months.
Q8: What do you miss about Christmas in Halifax?
A8: A lot of things. But the one that keeps popping into my head is the ease of driving into Bayers Lake to get shopping done. I know that sounds crazy but I miss that quiet feeling of being out there.
Q9: How is 2015 looking?
A9: So good. Now that we are both working and have things settled on living and child care, all that is ahead is fun. We have some trips planned, the boys are getting into sports and there is always the Toronto Raptors winning the NBA title. Ha. Dreaming I guess. The summer has a family wedding and hopefully some visiting with friends.
Q10: Which kid are you doing tonight?
A10: Sorry that is a common internal question when it comes to bedtime. That will also be changing once they are in the same room. I wonder how that will go. Stay tuned.
Happy holidays from everyone at Like a Dad.
