It's My Birthday and I'll cry if I want to...



Yup, so it's like the big 40 birthday has come, and pretty much gone here. Overall, it was a quiet, normal day with tons of work from a client, kids coming home from school and Tyler's baseball practice all needing to be coordinated. Then a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant (Sizzler!), and now a nice, quiet evening at home, relaxing.

Nope, the world hasn't ended, and I've made it to 40, an age that there were times I thought I'd never reach, and that scared me. Only, well, now that it's here it's not as big of a deal as I feared. There is so much going on in my life, so much that is absolutely positive and wonderful that I'm far happier than I was ten years ago, and I don't fear the next decade nearly as much as I did once upon a time.

Oh, and this is the first blog entry I've made here, and anywhere, for a long, long time. Yes, I am the same DKStories that was a member at GA for a while and whose stories are still posted there. You might find future blog posts and forum posts from me here in the future - but no promises. Life's very busy and I don't always have the time, or uninterrupted concentration to write out a blog post.

A quick update on the last six months though - My partner and I now have full custody of my nephew and niece. Tyler is age 12 and Kaliann is age 10. We bought a much bigger house now that we have kids, and got a very good deal on it at the same time. I work from home doing political consulting work regarding data operations for a variety of campaigns. Oh, and I just love so many of the stories on AD that it only seemed fitting to have an account here.

Now, how about a Nexus chapter for a late birthday present? Oh, and maybe another story about those baseball players in Triptychs - couldn't get enough of those! Hmmm, time to go do some reading...although I think the husband and kids want to do the cake and presents thing before it gets much later...

Hope the blog becomes a frequent thing for you. We don't get enough blog writing. The ones we do have are great, just like what you just wrote. We need more, though. More. More.Welcome. Cole

thanks Cole. I use to write fairly regular blogs but fell out of the habit a year or two ago. It was when we were really starting to get into dealing with my husband's leukemia that I think things slowed down quite a bit. Now he's back to work and going strong, and I think we're finally settling into the fact that we have kids with all the comittments that entails. Although I still got to play Killzone 3 for an hour tonight and poor Tyler just had to sit there and cheer me on...the privileges of age. :)
