My life is so good. I have so much and so many opportunities. I am grateful for my wonderful partner, the chance to go back to school, my warm home, good friends, my sweet kitty, sobriety... I can't begin to list all the things in my life for which I give thanks each and every day. Current Mood: content

I'm breathing life into a new project
which perhaps will take on a life of its own once enough people touch upon it.
If this is unwelcome, please accept my apologies.

So it's almost Sept. 1. I usually think of the end of January and February as the times of big changes in my life. But it seems that this time is as well (maybe it's just every 6 months...)
For years I worked seasonal jobs, teaching at outoor centers, and so changed where I lived and where I worked almost annually. Then I moved to DC and got a job as a contractor. So the trend continued, with annual layoffs.
(Crosses fingers) but it seems that things have finally settled down. So, as of September, 2007, I am thankful for:
6 years living in the same apartment.
4 1/2 years with pinkdomme
(she was a February change).
3 years at the same job.
2 years with clonetwin
For all of this, and the stability of it, I am truely thankful. Current Mood: thankful
