It's been a while

Two years and some, I think. During which time a lot has happened (like everyone else). Some things are different, some are the same. My memory is a little hazy but I think I stopped posting because I figure, why bother. It kind of felt like shouting into the wind. But things change. I don't care any more. Instead of hoping for an audience, I'm looking at this as a diary. If nobody but me sees it, then okay. I love you guys who did check in here regularly. And at least one of you I see on Facebook often enough to know that I still exist. I'd love it if the rest of you (all 2 or 3 of you) managed to find me again. But if not, I know you're out there somewhere.

10:01 on New Year's Eve. I figured I'd get a jump on the whole ball-drop thing. Anyway, I have friends for whom it's been 2012 for many hours already. We're no big deal here in Eastern Standard Time. So what is my theme for my re-launch? I think it's that everything I thought was So Important really isn't. What I'm finding is that, the older I get, the more I realize I don't matter. But I mean that in the best way possible.

Last time I posted, I'm not sure Twitter even existed. Please don't let me become a Twitter feed. If I start complaining about traffic or the guy in front of me at Starbucks, or what a buffoon Michelle Bachmann is, please tell me to shut up. I'd like to think I'm older and wiser. Hah. But anyway, I'll be throwing things up here from time to time. If anyone sees them and wants to comment, cool. If not...once more, it will be a valuable reminder to me that I matter not at all.
