Last November I remember being grateful that Scott hadn't lost his hand in the accident that took part of his finger while working up in PA. Now, a year later, Scott and I are no longer together. Our sweet sweet Callie is gone and I'm living in Maryland. For me....Lotta change!
But Scott is healthy and living the life he wants and for that I am grateful. And Callie....What can I say? We were told that adopting her at such an old age we'd be lucky to have her for a year and a half. We had 8. I am so grateful that the sweetest little soul I've ever known was left in my care for those 8 years. What a surprise she was.
Maryland is a huge surprise and Jesse is a huge surprise and his wonderful family (Human and furry). But, it wasn't until today. I swear today. Exactly 3 months and 1 week since I left Tennessee that I was able to secure some kind of steady work doing what I love. And with really nice people right outside of Annapolis.
I am so relieved and beyond grateful.... And terrified that it will go away before it starts... (my own insecurity I suppose)
I leave 2014 completely humbled with a pinched nerve in my neck that I've had since the second week I moved here. I'm not in any pain but I still can't feel my right thumb...It's amazing. I can still play the piano even though I don't feel it there. My brain knows exactly what it's supposed to do. I finally got my Maryland healthcare so I should be able to get the shot that alleviates this.
I plan on enjoying every second of this holiday season and my first Christmas, birthday and New Year in this new place. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Birthday (for all those other holiday babies like me that may get forgotten) and a very safe happy healthy 2015.
