the hindsight



I know I've been a bad blogger, which is funny since this is really more for me than for you. A way to keep tabs on what's happening on my life when and where.

I didn't even do an obligatory Thanksgiving thankful post, and while I got my christmas cards out the day of my flight, I didn't even post anything here. Shameful of me. You'd think that after 5 years of blogging I'd have a routine down, but life gets in the way of ... writing about life. We all know life has been the house.

I have a fucking house. A HOUSE. How about putting THAT on the Thanksgiving list?

Between, moving, traveling, unpacking and home repairs, I haven't really had a chance to fully enjoy the house, Boy says he still isn't really there yet, but it's amazing. I was walking around the backyard today and it started to finally hit me.

Every New Year's you say "this is going to be my year," and I think that's always true, just never how you intended. Looking back on 2007 I notice that in that year I acquired a home, 2(!) new cars, and 2 dogs, which should be enough to quantify a year as a success.

So now that I'm writing this from my new house, from my new office, I'm going to say that 2008 is going to be my year again. Somehow.

Hell, 2008 is going to be OUR year, because I can probably count on 1 hand the things I don't do with Boy.

Happy 2008! I sure hope it's everything you want it to be and more than you could have imagined.

I am dying to see your review of Sweeney Todd...
