… and I think I owe an update on where I am. This was a journal for me to express my thoughts, feelings, and life changes. If you’ve been reading my stuff it can be hard to figure out what has happened, but let’s see if I can’t catch you up with a quick note.
There has been a lot of writing, I started a book treatment, but it’s been very slow going. Somehow I end up working on another project anytime I open the laptop for the book. But isn’t that always the way? Creativity is a fickle thing, and it’s impossible to force. So when the bug hits me to write something else… well… I fail.
Work, has been good, crazy, but good. I have boundaries now and make time for my family. My brother and my brother-in-law have moved in with us, so the space we created for my Grandmother has not gone to waste.
The two year anniversary of her passing is coming up in February, and my family is still in shambles. My mom is ill as is my stepfather, but they are plugging along okay on their own. My sister and I still don’t talk, but she is living on her own, and still being herself. On the bright side my mom is now acknowledging the abuse I suffered as a child so I have a little validation there.
But onto the good stuff: my marriage. Well, we are still together. Still working on us and still taking it day by day. All the work we’ve done, all the shit that has happened, has somehow made us stronger and brought us closer. However, I don’t say things are going to last forever. I know just how delicate a relationship is, and how much work it takes, and I refuse to get complacent.
So what’s in store for 2020? Not sure yet, I will keep the page going but still more for myself and my growth. If anyone has questions or requests I am open to engage… but you know how that goes.
Happy Holidays y’all!
Pagans are the reason for the season, so thank a heathen today!
