It's been a while since I've bellied up to the bar. In some ways - everything has changed. In many ways, nothing has changed. We bought and moved into a new house (aka the most prolific real estate coup in the history of steve). We gave away most of our furniture and are starting fresh - which is fun, but can be stressful: Couches are expensive. It's strange to be in a new house... with so little furniture. You can't really feel "settled in" until you have comfy places to sit. In other news, my kids are getting old... it's really, really weird. I have a kid that is a lot closer in age to many of you than I am. It is a real and serious change in parenting. It is not easy.

Life is really strange. Some days I feel like I am winning at the game... and others I feel like I've already lost.

But IRL I'm kind of a prick...

I'm at the point where I'm likely closer to the age of our interns' parents than to the interns. I don't feel old, but apparently I am.

Lately I feel less like this. It's the running and hiking. I've lost both of them before I started. It's a different perspective for me, and I feel mentally healthier for it. Knowing I'll never be the best makes it easier to try to be ok.
