One month and one year

It's been one month since I started this whole NaBloPoMo thing. And I have to say that I'm proud that I made it through. I posted on days when it wasn't the most comfortable thing to do - and I'm so glad that I did. I found support in your comments. I made new friends. I laughed. I cried. I hurled. :)

It has also been one year to the day since I closed on my new place.

I'll be honest. I hardly gave this new place a shot until a month or so ago. See, shortly after I moved, I decided I wanted to leave. And although that new adventure hasn't happened, it has forced me to deal with living here. What I've found in it's place is a new adventure. This past year has taught me a lot about me.

My new place is fantastic...truly. And just because I've had issues with the fridge, the TV, and mice (yes - I had mice in my house in did I not ever post about that??!?!) I'm starting to see it as a that I will be happy in.

I am actually really enjoying living in Colorado...starting to put down roots, starting to trust new friends, and (gasp!) starting to date again.

I can't wait to find out what the next year (or even the next month) will bring.

Yeah for posting for 30 days.

I think it is so hard when you move away to a new place. I moved away from everything I knew with my husband we have been here for three years. It has taken me two years to finally find a true friend I can count on. I think it makes us grow and understand life a little bit more. We do try and have a close friend but we are able to chose better than when we were maybe at a different stage in our life.

Our mutual friend just told me that you two have talked and said, "Oh, yeah, Daisy is wondering why you stopped posting comments...." Sigh. I'm surer you told her this ages ago, but the girl is slow sometimes. Life was occurring, as it sometimes does- please don't take it as an affront to you, for it wasn't. It's actually fun to pile up a bunch of posts and read them at once...kind of like a Dave Berry book.

Fun reads, as always-
