33 1/2

They say life is like a roll of toilet paper... The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.  And it's so true.  Mathematically speaking, as we get older each day becomes a smaller percentage of our life, so it should be no surprise each day would seem shorter.  I'm scared and nervous to experience how fast it will go when I get even older.

Today I turn 33 1/2, and before I know it, I'll be 34 and officially in my mid 30's.  My kids are now 5 1/4 (today actually as Sean's birthday is August 5th), and nearly 3 1/2.

However, I couldn't be more happy about where we're at.  Darcy and I both have fulfilling and challenging jobs, our kids make us laugh and surprise us with what they know every day, and we have a good home in one of the better places to live in the world (at least we feel that it is).

I'm saddened that I gave up on this blog a few years back.  I was burnt out, and also came the emergence of Facebook, with status updates, pictures, and even videos, that could be posted on the fly right from the smartphone.  Why spend all this time writing posts to share pictures, when I could easily just post them to my wall in a quick second for all my "friends" to see, which was a lot larger group than my loyal Narduzzi Nation following?

Because of that decision, I have lost two years of documentation, color, and analysis of our events, travels, and milestones.  Yes, we have plenty of pictures and videos in our phones, on Facebook, and downloaded to my Youtube account, but it's not the same.

Thus, I pledge to write 3-4 times a month about what is going on in the Narduzzi Nation:  starting now.

Welcome back everyone!
