All in all, 2008 has been a pretty damn good year.
An unexpected year.
On December 31st 2007, I wouldn't have guessed that I'd be sitting in my own house with Shelley and Steve right behind me. I wouldn't have guessed that I'd have a roommate and really like it. I wouldn't have guessed I could do a headstand.
I would have guessed that I'd be single.
But I wouldn't have guessed that I'd have had the chance to not only date three very lovely people but also to keep them in my life as good friends.
I would have guessed that I'd have exactly one whack of excellent friends.
Today's going to be a busy one. I want to wake up tomorrow to a clean, orderly house, with the all the niggling chores I've been putting off all done. Seems like a good way to start a new year. My house isn't a crazy disaster, but it is a slightly perturbed one.
- clean bathrooms
- change sheets
- wash floors
- put up blinds in bedroom
- tape up paint chips in bathroom
- hooks in closet
- clean fish tank
- take compost to garden
- get new bead for ceiling fan chain
- patch & paint holes where old curtains used to be
- fix splotch on dark blue
- vacuum couch and chair
- buy KC for lobster dinner
- get a door shelf for fridge
- grocery shop for new year's brunch
- do brunch prep
That's a lot. I'd better get going.
But before I do, thank you, everyone, for sticking with me, through my ups and downs, my endless piled-up clauses, my internal confusion, its occasional outward manifestations; the mess, sadness and joy that makes up the day to day of my life. Of a life, anyone's life.
