2009 is finally over. Swept under the carpet like crumbs you’re too lazy to sweep into a dustpan. I don’t remember alot of big shining moments really. Alot of it was spent in anticipation of "The Deployment", and dealing with the training and preparation that comes with that.
There was the Briefing From Hell, in which I learned that I’m totally doing deployments wrong.
There was my major epiphany that relieved alot of my stress.
And my Minor Epiphany, in which I stopped faking it.
There were adorable pictures.
There was FEAR but…
Then there was HOPE.
There was pride.
There was Self Acceptance.
And there was Silliness.
With 2010, there is only one thing that matters. THIS is the year my husband comes home. It may still be months away. But 2009, even before he left, started as the year he was going to leave. It was a cloud over our heads that remained there all year, and just got steadily darker. Now, it’s slowly getting lighter, and fading a way. One day at a time.
That’s all I needed for a Happy New Year. That, and a new computer.
