...and flipping TEN???
my mom says my birthday will be special this year b/c it will be 10-10-10. i thought my birthday was special every year.
i know every new year brings out the yearning for change, but this year, i feel it even stronger. i know what it is. we've lived here for almost 4 years (which is the longest i've lived in one place in about 11 years. i'm bored, definitely wanting something different. eric's job is great...i shouldn't complain. we do ok. but, the current state of our country has me a little (and by a little, i mean a lot) apprehensive, and worried about the future. and i'm sick of sub. teaching. i want something different for myself, too. silas will start kindergarten in the fall...my goodness, this life goes by so quickly. so damn quickly.
christmas felt different this year. i've been down. i got to see my fam, though, and that was good. bittersweet, as usual, but even more so this time. many of you already know this, but my grandfather passed away on Jan. 5. We went to NC on Dec. 26th and came back to TN Jan. 3. so i ended up driving back by myself on the 5th to be there w/ my family for the funeral. i was glad to go and be with them, but it was exhausting. so emotionally draining. and i got sick, awfully sick, to boot. i'm just now starting to come up for air.
so, now it is two thousand and ten. anyone else think that is just unbelievable? who knows where it will take us...wherever it takes you, may your travels be safe and happy.
