Personal

My ideal woman

I've been thinking a lot recently about my future - specifically about whether I am interested in a future relationship. If nothing else, I've decided that I won't consider anything until my daughters are both out of the house and I'm in a more permanent living situation. That means at least three years or so of singlehood. That's a lot of time to get into a very comfortable rut that I may have no desire to break free of. It's kinda nice to have the freedom to do what you want when you want to.

Yesterday,
     All my troubles seemed so far away,
     Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
     Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Yesterday,
     Love was such an easy game to play,
     Now I need a place to hide away,
     Oh, I believe in yesterday.

The pathway is broken
     And the signs are unclear
     And I don't know the reason why you brought me here
     But just because You love me the way that You do
     I'm gonna walk through the valley
     If You want me to.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Ever have one of those days where nothing goes right? How about a full year? Such is my story - and the reason why I haven't written anything in nearly a year. Read the full article for the entire mess.

Here's to good friends...

This weekend, SWMBO and I went to dinner with a group of our closest friends in what has become an annual New Year's event. We always use this time to reflect on the prior year and look toward the coming one.

We usually sit around and talk about the major things that have happened to us during the year and try to predict what will happen soon or what we have planned in the new year.
