I suppose I should update, do the whole 'yes, we're alive' thing.

It was our 5th anniversary recently, and roho surprised me with a romantic weekend getaway in Stowe, Vermont.

I won't bore everyone with the details, but it was... just what we needed, I think. It was not a weekend of perfect small-town-inn-quaintness, but.. it was relaxing and fun and filled with wine, laughter, and a NCIS marathon. And local-grown organic garlic. Only in Vermont do you drive out to the boonies for a farm, find the produce unsupervised (save by a friendly dog) with a note to leave the money in the box and a list of prices. We spent alot there.

Since then, things have been a bit busy. I got hired as a full time employee at the company I've been working at since March (I was a temp) at the end of August, and have been moving along ever since.

I was contacted recently by someone I had a rather... fiery falling out with. I had a horrible sick feeling when I saw her name in my email inbox, but we've had a rather pleasant, 'hey, let's talk about what happened' and... I have high hopes that one day we'll be good friends again.

We've recovered from Briana's loss, more or less. We both still miss her, and I know I still have little pangs when I see a Samoyed truddling down the sidewalk. We have a beautiful box with her remains, along with a clay imprint of her paw. She'll be buried in Roho's mother's front yard where she can hear the neighborhood children pass. She loved them, they loved her. Mom will watch over her. (I'm getting choked up typing this, so apologies for abrupt topic switch)

My health is still iffy. I started coughing and having asthma-related while we were in Vermont, and it's not really getting better. I tire easily; I have noticed that since May/June, and I am starting to notice short term memory issues. If something is not in my face, I forget about it. (For those of you waiting for packages from me, I apologize- I feel like a horrible friend, I keep forgetting to get them together) The daily grind feels like a grind alot, and I never feel like I get enough rest. I need to schedule some doctors appointments, but it feels rather overwhelming when I look at everything I need to get checked. Getting old sucks. :(

Speaking of getting old.. Roho's birthday is coming up, along with the birthdays of some special friends. Where has this year gone?

And... that's all I have to write about now. I will perhaps try to write more later.
