Again, I did it again. It's been more than a month since I've been out here posting. Does that tell you what life has been like lately? A complete blurrrrr. I can't believe it's almost April.

Lots has happened since. In a nutshell, the terrible, horrible situation that I wouldn't wish on anyone -- the one that's been going on for almost 3 years -- has finally ended for us. It did not end perfectly, but it ended in a way that was the least onerous for us, and it ended much better than it usually does for people. So I am grateful, very grateful. I feel that God has truly answered prayers. Finally, we can get on with our lives....but not before becoming a bit of a puddle for even just a few minutes. An emotional puddle, an angry one, an elated one, a giddy one, a confused one. Still working through it and trying to pick up and move on. This situation was completely surreal, and I couldn't even believe it actually happened to us. I feel like I've just awakened from a long and harrowing nightmare, and it's going to take me a while to completely wake up and shake it off.

In other dimensions of life, work has been incredibly busy. And I feel another change coming on. Just feels like something's in the air at work. I may be up for a position which could move me to New York City, and I'm terribly excited about that. I've always wanted to live in Gotham, for even just a small while. It's a long shot -- I'm not sure I'm well qualified for the role, but if someone is going to consider me for it, I'm sure as heck going to put on the dog and act like it. The sheer excitement of going to work on Manhattan's 5th Ave is enough to get me motivated. I'm just pumped at the thought of it.

I'm at the Florida house right now - have been here for almost two months. Next week, we go back to Dallas for a couple of weeks. Hate to leave here, as the weather is turning so nice, and I hear there may be more snow in Dallas next week. It just won't stop this year, and I don't want to go there until Spring has definitely sprung.

On the health front, it's been about 10 weeks since my surgery. I'm feeling much better, very much recovered. The anemia is now gone, and my energy is back, and I feel like my old self again, full of zip. Amazing what having enough blood in the system can do for you. I feel like a whole new woman. And knowing I no longer have to face the monthly monster gives me such peace of mind. I can forget about all that now and do whatever I want. Freedom, indeed.
