...years.

I blame [livejournal.com profile] stigmatic.

I always do...she's the one who gave me a code and my name. The rest has been history...but what an interesting trip it continues to be.

7 years ago, I was fighting with TheChild to turn in her homework. Now I make plans to go see my grandsons.
7 years ago, I was looking for work in the worst job market I'd ever seen. Now I have survived through two more that were/are worse.
7 years ago, I could count the people I count as friends on one hand without using all fingers. Now I am overflowing with them....and I like it.

People here have seen me through heartache, drama, death, birth and parenting.
Some of the greatest stories I've ever experienced (and/or not shared with anyone) has been because of this journal. Now many of you know that it's true when I say "I was minding my own business..." :)

Has it all been fun and games? Nope. I've been drawn into misery and drama because of this place, but I can look back and say I'd do it again (except for the really stupid things...)

LJ has let me (and the ever-silent [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty) be ourselves with people who accepted us as we are...can't find that just anywhere anymore and I'm grateful.

Not to sound like an elder statesman, but there are a couple things LJ has cemented for me:
    When things are going bad, read your journal -- it was worse before and as long as you have hope it'll get better.
    When things are going great, read your journal -- it'll remind you of times past and (hopefully) keep you humble and keep you from being cocky.

Thanks for being here...

I think that one of the top 5 of things about being an "Adult" that sucks is being torn between being responsible with money vs going out to "play".

I think that 2010 should be the year you do (at least) 3 things you've never done before.

So I vow to:

  • Finally go camping.

  • Finally go to visit the DC area.

  • Finally do a (at least) 1 week road trip to see friends.

====================

What are you planning to do that you've never done before? (or want to do again but haven't?)

Still here...still trying to find some fun in the world.
Still looking for homes for the cats...seems like all no-kill shelters in the area are full.
Still looking for work...while watching the number of friends losing their jobs over the past 2 weeks hit double digits.

Still not King.

Watching TV with my grandson...after having a preliminary interview that did not suck.

Good day indeed.

Dear Sciatic Nerve in Lower Back:

Flaring up right before Labor Day weekend isn't cool. I will ignore you. I will move in pain and make you rue the day you started up with me.

No Love,

Insomnia raised its ugly head to the tune of about 3 hours sleep. Whee. May have been the heat or stress or a combination...stayed up reading, job hunting, chatting online - but nothing helped the lack of sleepy.

I get it from time to time, when the brain won't shut down - will work on making this visitor a one night stand.

I did solve some problems while I was staring at the ceiling, so there's that.

Seems to have been a long week...and it's only Thursday.

To satiate my weary mind, I ask: What keeps you sane?

*takes off tie*

The first interview went well...with any luck they'll call back for a second sometime next week.

And I forgot how good I look when I dress up. :)
