last month

In the past month, I.....

celebrated Christmas with family, a welcome difference from last year, which I spent alone due to work constraints.

Marked the passing of my great-aunt Pearl, an extraordinary woman, at the age of 101.

Rang in the new year with an old friend and a roomful of new ones.

Wished someone who'd hurt me best of luck with everything, and meant it.

Got a new job! Full-time, benefits, regular hours and it's not retail.

Life's a struggle, but the hard times always subside. It's just hard to remember when you're in it. And if I live be 101, I should try to relax and stop stressin'.
