As I go through each month seeing my old appointments, notes, trips it is like a year in review. When I read Dentist, Dr and hair appointments, I see between the lines of what on the surface seem like pretty generic calendar entries and they remind me of what happened in the last year. A vet appointment with Toby doesn't need to say much more than "Toby vet" for a flood of memories to come back.
2009 wasn't my favorite year. While it wasn't without happy moments it was a year in which change happened for better and for worse. I spent most of 2009 getting used to living in DC (after moving here from Orlando) and enjoying the city, the snow, making new friends.
Then just as we were feeling settled we learned Paul's company is closing their DC office and the renter of our home in Florida moved out. Everything is up on the air. Suddenly the future is uncertain. This time next year when I take down our kitchen calendar what will I see? A move to another state? Back to FL? Or will we be staying in DC?
Tonight, as I fill out my 2010 calendar with birthdays and reminders, I feel as if I am trying to see ahead into the future. I turn to the month of April and think "this should all be figured out by then" ... fingers crossed!
Labels: this and that
I know that things are up in the air and scary right now - but know that we're all here for you -- we've got your back -- and that it is absolutely true what they say about when one door closes, another opens. I am sure that will hold true for you too!
Take good care, sweetie! Thinking good thoughts for you and Paul...
I hope 2010 is full of joy for you.
You are a very cool lady.

I'd say pack up and move back to Florida by family! Plus it's much warmer!
Best wishes for 2010!
