Goodbye and Good Riddance!

I don’t think it’s hit me yet, that 2009 is almost over, or that a whole decade has now passed since I met Todd. It has been the best ten years of my life, without a doubt. 2009, though? Not so much. Hoping 2010 will be everything 2009 wasn’t. Hope it will be for you, too, dear Reader.

And speaking of, thanks to those of you who read this ridiculous self-indulgent little blog of mine. It really is nice to be heard.

Happy New Year!

p.s. Scotty P, just got your gift in the mail. Made me unbelievably happy! I will take care of it and get it back to you in one piece. Promise.

    I didn’t get sentimental about this decade being over until someone on fb asked where we were as the new century began. And it hit me that I was in San Francisco with my first husband and his friends on the eve of having my heart broken. And then having to go through a divorce in front of 650 prying church eyes (actually that was 1300 eyes of 650 folks). But I too would agree that this decade has been one of growing into my own skin and voice. And after that heartache (and 5 years) came new mature love. Companionship. Someone who loves me despite my being a minister. 🙂 I welcome this century’s teens and all that we have to become. Thanks for writing so honestly and beautifully. You rock, Anne!

    I agree Leelee. Fuck off 2009. This year sucked in so many ways.

    I have spent this whole decade with the love of my life. She has given me a beautiful little girl and a son to be. It has been a trying and ever changing 10 years, but worth every heartache. As for last year. It was tough. We had some losses, but some doors were opened as well. Sicknesses were healed and some battles lost, but I am here with my little army to fight on. Thanks for your words Anne, I have learned a lot from them and will need to learn a lot more from somewhere… it might as well be you. Then again…

    Oh, Addie. You are a good daddy. If you are learning from me, you are in trouble. 🙂
