Because if it's been more than a year, it's like an update, but it can't reasonably be called one.
Life: up and down. All I've been doing is paying off debt, trying to get this house and yard into some semblance of home-eostasis, attempting to enable my mom's technical aptitude settings, devouring and spreading politics, and struggling in my relationship, which is in a state of indeterminate hiatus. As is often the case, it's complicated and sad. However, as much as all of these things may stress me out, I usually manage to come to peaceful terms with them when necessary to restore personal balance. So I'm going to count that as doin' alright, all things considered.
And while I have often been guilty of already being half asleep when it occurs to me to check in on LJ, it's important to say that I will be in town for the DNC from the 24th thru the 30th (leaving the 31st). So at the very least I will be at G&C on Friday the 29th, barring debilitating tear gas inhalation or other such semiforseeable event. I am flying in and may end up renting a car, but as I still hafta budget for a telephoto, I am likely busing it around town from my uncle's in Stapleton.
I hope all of you are doing well, and hugs and hellos to the new kids. Welcome to Life, and congratulations on your excellent choice of parents:-)
Hope to see as many of you as possible soon!
