Where Was I A Year Ago?

Yet another reflective day.

But really, so much has happened in 365 days... where was I, and what was I doing a year ago?

Starting a new and strange year. 2008 became a rollercoaster.

Asking questions, and searching for non-existent answers. Who, me? Never.

Getting to know what would eventually become my amazing little family.

Making new...
....and awesomely chimp-like friends.

Wearing cowboy hats in public because I was told to. (Trust, that's pretty monumental. You hear that, Craig?)

Deconstructing and quietly observing those around me, like the fly on the wall that I am.

Spending all the time I could with my wonderful friends, which also meant infiltrating The Mansion House (our watering hole) one day at a time.

I think we did well.

Going through the usual self-identity questions, without allowing the answers to surface.

... and falling in love with a sweetheart.

Where am I now?

At my computer. Wishing that the boy would get better, working on random writing jobs, and searching for a full-time gig.

And thinking that this might be a good day. If only I allow it.

hey! I recognize that chimp.

why no bland-o, blond-o?

Kris said...

I didn't know Bland so well a year ago... I don't think it was until Spring that he really became known to me.

Friggin' Bland.

Crazy! I've always wondered what your ex looked like.
