It's Been WAAAAAY Too Long

The last couple of months have been full of work, school, kids, divorce and of course Babushka. What has been lost is the old sense of blogging - more than TMI and HNT anyway. I have missed my time here.

As the new year approaches I am awed and amazed at what has transpired in the last year for me.
  • A full year of fulfilling and joyous sobriety (I have been 'dry' a year before but never lived a truly sober life)
  • The completion (as of Tuesday) of my 20-year quest for a College Degree (B.S. in Business)
  • A long awaited but never believed would happen promotion (Director has a nice ring)
  • And of course, a year of amazement with my Babushka
One triggering event for my reflection is the return to livin' of The Good Wife. One could say that she was responsible for taking my blog virginity. I have always kept her link on the blog, hoping that one day I would click the link and she would be back. I happened to check again late last week and there was in fact a new post - a month's worth!

I am glad she is back, still seducing Rick and hoping she overcomes her loss. The Good Wife made me realize that a passionate, loving long-term relationship was possible. Her words helped to support my internal resolve that there was more to life than what I had been experiencing up to then. All things happen for a reason. The Good Wife's presence in mine at a time of despair and confusion was not by chance.

Which of course leads me to my Babushka. I now have in my life what I had only read about and dreamed of late at night. I am blessed indeed!!!

Get Busy Livin or Get Busy Dyin'
I am living the good life

My lovely Blogger friends give me far too much credit! =)

Let me say congratulations to you, this sounds like it has been a fabulous year for you! And to have someone wonderful to share it with, well, I believe that makes all the difference in the world. :)
