What I've Learned
Recapping a decade.
I did not mention two deaths. One overwhelmingly heart-breaking that left me on the couch for 5 days. One that was sad. Truly sad but not tragic because it was the course of nature. And I don't know why they slipped my mind. The first probably because I live with it every day...it wasn't in my memory because it's in my present. The second? I don't know. I have to do better.
Don't know me because you will probably die. Kinda kidding...maybe.
From these deaths have been born some of the more important, sweeter friendships of my life.
I forgot to mention a vile sexual harassment. Sexual harassment of the "I'm going to fuck up your career" variety. I'm kinda glad I missed that. But it was because of it that I took the UK job...Favorite. Job. Ever. So...THANKS, YOU VILE SEXUAL HARASSER!
I desperately need to take better care of my body. I forget that it is breakable and don't always treat it right.
I quite obviously love and respect my job.
My friendships are important to and treasured by me.
It looks like I've given up on romance. Perhaps that will change.
And why I've been remiss in recapping...BAXTER. The little dog has a little problem...that momentarily today was a potential HUGE problem...had me running through the streets like Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs Kramer. Potential huge problem...most probably a problem from more than 6 months ago that I completely missed. A problem that is probably on the mend. Second opinion on Tuesday. But as we came back and I was so rattled I took a wee pill and then a wee nap (when the going gets tough, a Tisdale gets sleeping), I realized....
I love. I love hard.
Stupid fucking little dog. Who knew?
