Since Halloween, the Viking and I have left Farmland and moved about 700 miles due south to Texas! All good, all carefully planned and carried out but still mentally and physically completely exhausting.
I don't know who owns all the stuff I ended up packing and unpacking but they need to seriously downsize. Or get busy on Ebay.
It's a bittersweet thing, this move. Our family is complete again and there are no words for the sweetness in that. Fortunately, my employer has let me keep my job and I'm able to work remotely. Thank you, Tim Berners-Lee (not Al Gore!) for inventing the World Wide Web. Sadly, I left friends and coworkers I truly care about and instant messaging and emailing don't take the place of a little conversation at copier.
It's traditional on New Years Eve to look back at the year with either fondness or a hearty good riddance! This has been a very difficult year for many people I know and I sincerely wish all good things to come their way in 2010. I've been lucky this year in many areas and I'll remember it for happy times and genuine affection I never anticipated.
I've never been good at resolutions. I always forget them in a day or two. So I just don't make them anymore. What about you? Happy New Year, I hope it brings you more smiles than tears!
