Winding Down Another Year

Yeah, I realize that it's only December 18, but I can see the end of 2007 coming down the tracks. Here's a few reasons why:

1) We wrapped up our living history schedule at Halifax two weeks ago, so we must be getting close to the end of the year, right?

2) Christmas shopping is almost done; I say almost because we still have to buy the one big ticket item for my stepdaughter.

3) This is my last week of work in 2007. I'll be in the office tomorrow, followed by two days of first person character interpretation at Tryon Palace, then I'm off until January 2. The boss is really wanting me to burn up some comp time, so that's what I'm doing.

4) The excitement is building for my wife, who will leave her position as Assistant Director of the Onslow County Museum on December 31. She has worked there for three and a half years, but will be starting a new position as Program Assistant at the NC Maritime Museum in Beaufort, NC on January 2. (That's pronounced "Bo-fort" for all you South Carolinians who have been saying it incorrectly all these years (haa haa)!

Of course, my calendar for 2008 already has quite a bit on it and is filling up faster as we speak. But I'm looking forward to the break, though I'm sure I'll be restless while I'm sitting at home; it's just my nature. Never fear, I'll find something to blog about.

Tell the frau I said congratulations on her new posting in Beaufort. Well deserved and I know the crew in Richlands will miss her.

Additionally, thanks for educating the mass on how to properly pronounce my home town.

I hope to make it to Beaufort by the 22nd and enjoy some much needed rest. Than again I am trying to link up with Randy at Goldsboro, Donny at Bentonville and Walt at Averasboro. Rest... never a chance. The quest for knowledge always continues.

Merry Christmas my friend to you and the family, enjoy your time off.
