I haven't really been on DW/LJ in an age. Yesterday, though, I had to connect with a friend with whom I'd lost touch, and the easiest way was a PM on LJ, so when I'd done that I started reading through my old entries, remembering what things had been like back in 2003, when I started this journal.

Wow, things have really changed. *g*

Anyway, I don't know that I can promise to keep up with journaling in the future any more than I have in the past, but I figured I'd post here and get it on the record:

I'm happy.

I'm happy with my smart, beautiful, kind, generous, sometimes pain-in-my-butt kids. I'm happy with my life. I'm happy with where I'm living. I'm happy with the new friends I've made and the old ones who've been here all along. And while I can't officially speak for [livejournal.com profile] onnakitty and [livejournal.com profile] shadowbat, they seem pretty happy, too.

I can't say that everything is roses (or perhaps some other metaphor to which I am not allergic *g*) all the time. For instance, not a day goes by that I don't think about why our lives have changed so drastically in the last few years; I suspect that's going to be true for the rest of my life. And to say that it doesn't make me angry anymore would be a lie, because it does — every single time I think about it. Angry on behalf of my kids, and angry on my own behalf. There's a whole lot of other negative emotions tied up in there, too, and I suspect that I'll be untangling those for a hell of a long time.

But the other 99.99999% of the time? I'm happy.

I sincerely hope you can say the same.
