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.

"And that's why God Almighty gave us fire insurance and the public defender".

I really feel like a found a good balance, with all the stuff that were thrown in my directions. Not a perfect balance - but a balance, altogether. Coming from a control freak, it's a lot.

And oh, P-C! You in particular made me laugh when I read old posts this week.

What else besides ramen can you scoop? YOU CAN SCOOP THIS WORLD FROM DARKNESS!

What, where, who, was I funny, am I even here anymore. Aw, thanks.

S to the A -- using they/them pronouns!

Thanks for the love, ya’ll. It’s wonderful to see you all too.

DH and I have our BS degrees in Accounting.

Laura, I didn’t know that! I’d love to chat with you a little more about your experience. I enjoy it enough but also can keep sufficient distance — I get way too into things at work, not healthy for me — that it seems smart to have credentials. Businesses always need accountants.

SA! It's good to see you posting, and it is good to hear that things are turning around for you. I'm sorry it took an illness to make that happen.

Hi sj!! Yeah, it was tough and took a long time to even realize what was happening, but it was all necessary in the end. I appreciate when I’m stable a lot more.

Hey P-C, I want to congratulate you on all your literary accomplishments this year. You’ve been working and developing so much over the last few years, and it’s been wonderful to see you succeeding in a difficult industry. I purchased Genius Locii on KS. :)

Brendaaaaaaaaaaa!! I love you!

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

SA, so good to see you posting here! I'm sorry about the physical difficulties, but glad you are improving. I wish we were in the same space--I'd massage your hands for you, since I know now what a difference that can make!

If you're going through hell/keep on going/don't slow down/keep your fear from showing/you might be gone/'fore the devil even knows you're there

SA, welcome back! That sounds like a good plan that will give you options without taking over life. How's the pup?

Yes, 'tis I. A little more decrepit, but still here.

Ooops, used a wrong character there.

I think of you and your beautiful altars all the time. I am clearly way behind on getting up to the PNW, and I think it's been a couple of years since I've seen you in person. Must rectify!

Oh man hand massage. One side effect of going back to school is that I am physically writing (rather than typing) all the time. About three weeks in, my long-dormant carpal tunnel kicked back in (last seen in grad school) and while I've got the neuropathy settled, my right hand feels still and bruised like all the time. Hand masssssssaaaaaaaaaaaage, especially from a beloved, would be amahzing.

That's the goal. I may actually end up teaching (!!) at the community college level--with my MA, I am eligible, and could potentially teach in a couple different disciplines. But it's not the most reliable of careers, and having a part-time accounting position would give me the stability to have that flexibility.

How's the pup?

Oh man, still the cutest, sweetest kid to ever exist. I had her best friend over for Thanksgiving week, and they were so ridiculously cute together. Oliver, her bestie, is the white one, and Rookie, my girl, is the brown one. Ridiculous, right? Here they are in their sweaters, cuddling again. Oliver is an American pittie/Jack Russell mix (hilarious) and Rookie is an American staffordshire terrier, so they both only have short top coats with no undercoat. They're usually swaddled to keep them warm, like Plei's greyhounds. Minus the snoods.

Thank you!! I will post in here about this ridiculous year at some point.

Good to see you as well.
