Today marks the 40th anniversary of my arrival on this plannet. And I had thought about doing a “decade in review” kind of thing, but after looking over who I was back in January of 2001, I realized that unless you were there, it’d bore you to TEARS. The highlights include the birth of my youngest, changing jobs 7 times, the deterioration and eventual end of my marriage, figuring out who I’m supposed to be versus who I was trying to be, meeting this incredible woman, making new friends and reconnecting with old, and finally settling back down (with the previously mentioned woman) into the place I’m at now.
So, for making the last decade of my life what it was, a big thank you to Ursula, Badger, Donna, Tango, Scott S, Karen & Rob, Ray & Jake, Mur & Jim, J & Mel, Jeff & Dale, Dave & Diana, LeAnn, Paula, Spot, Sandra, Jenny, Jennie, Otter, Scott Z, Jason, Joe P, Joe K, Terry & gp, Sonny, Mom & Dad, Amy, Roy & Betsy, Ursula’s Fans, and everyone else who made the last ten years of my life the amazing journey it’s been.
 You can go back and read all the angsty bits, the painful bits, the joys, the sorrows, etc, etc if you want. I’ll pass – I was there.
 You know who you are *grin*
