Goodbye and Good Riddance 2015: Goodnight moon  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Thanksgivukkahmas, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering.

Go away, 2015.

I didn't know how to respond to the bat-shit crazy. And then I realized I didn't have to. -Victor Infante

A new start in a new place with support. It sounds good to me, asyke. Hugs also a very good thing.

Oh, asyke. From the very few glimpses I caught at Bitches this year, I knew you had a rough year, but I had no idea it was this rough and ground shattering. I'm sorry. May 2016 bring you the stability, love, and healing needed. Much ~ma from here.

This machine kills fascists

I thought my year was going to be okay, if not quite as beautiful or magical as I might prefer, but I guess it bit me hard on its way out.

Thrive to spite them

Thanks Shir. Just having support around me is helpful. Hard to get used to at times but helpful.

Well on thing is looking up with the help of Dad I have a car. The payments will be manageable. Honda Fit. The sales guy was nice.

The first place we went to the sales guy was a former high school coach...he lacked tact.

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

Oh, this year.

"Faded like the lilac, he thought."

Yeah, fuck this year.

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

Seriously. And yet, this year has been wonderful for some of us too -- I'm thinking in particular of the Buffista babies born this year, including my own. But it came in with a really shitty bang, and appears to be going out the same way.

As I said to a friend recently (a cancer survivor who just found out that she has a whole new type of cancer, and whose children both got engaged this year), don't you just want a little less LIFE in your life, sometimes? Enough with the huge ups and downs; I could go for some tranquility for a while.

Why abandon a well tried system just because it doesn’t work?

Oh, don't wish for that. Tranquility, yes; less life in your life - I understand why, but, well, we should know to be careful with wishes, right?

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

No, you're right, of course -- I suppose I should come up with a better way to phrase that, at least. Let's just go with tranquility, then.

I know my own heart and understand my fellow man. But I am made unlike anyone I have ever met. I dare to say I am like no one in the whole world. - Anne Lister

Goodnight moon...so perfect and heartbreaking. 2015 has been a hard Buffista year and I hope the coming year is brighter.

Personally, 2015 has been pretty positive. We have:

  • Relocated to NC from CA
  • Experienced first snow (my boys, that is)
  • Moved into our new home
  • Turned 2 (F) and about to turn 6 ( !!!)
  • Visited often with grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts (previously saw them ~1 per year)
  • Started Kindergarten (!!!!)
  • Got a new job (me, last month - same company)
  • Stopped nursing forever (sob)
  • Visited CA (DW and I in separate trips)

Hoping for a lovely, peaceful year for you, my Buffistae. Hugs and love.
