happy new year new dog + dispatch to my boss
Every once in a while, I write an email that comes out more succinct and sincere than any blog post I spend hours editing. I sent one such message to my boss today…
Happy New Year!
I hope you had a restful and happy time in Germany. Can’t wait to catch up with the team now that it’s after the holidays. The community front was well looked after by dalas and me; happy to say I have no fires to report. The App of the Year Award buzz kept going strong all through last week. It was such a rush knowing we were reaching and welcoming so many new creators.
As for me, I am fighting what I think is bronchitis and training this new dog I got! He is kind of like a child. He’s much more work than Mittens and Monkey combined, but he’s way more forthcoming with feedback and affection, so there is an upside. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I signed up for animal number three - especially one that requires regular walks in the blistering cold - but it’s a small price to pay to make your dream of having a home filled with lots of love and animals come true.
Thanks again for the opportunity to work together last year. Looking forward to working with the team to move onward and upward in 2013!
