Two things in life are certain...

I haven't posted in many months because I feel as though I've turned this blog into a political ranting space, and I'm trying to avoid that. Also, I've felt a strange sort of need for privacy regarding things I used to feel the need to shout from the rooftops. Lastly, I've been lazy and somewhat uninterested in my own ideas.

Today, however marks a momentous occasion, and I would be remiss if I did not take the time to record some thoughts. Besides being Easter, today is the fourth anniversary of the day that I first started dating my beautiful Eddy G. Honestly, I never thought we'd make it this long. Of course, I HOPED we would, and I WANTED our relationship to last. Furthermore, we have both WORKED to make it last. There were (and are) many things to prevent its longevity, but luckily for me, the things that solidify and perpetuate our relationship have outweighed and outlasted those that would tear it down. I can't imagine life without my Eddy in it. It seems strange to think about the time before I met him. It's as if that time couldn't possibly be real! Even though we have lived far apart for far too long now, I still feel his love, and it is a comfort and a joy!
What have I done to celebrate this anniversary today? My taxes!! (Resisting the mighty urge for political rant)!!!! Wagner served as the appropriate background for this drama. Eddy will be coming toward the end of this month to visit, so we will celebrate for real then. I eagerly await his arrival! As does the little dog somewhere in that little brain, I'm sure!

In other news, baseball has started and I can get back on the emotional roller coaster that it is being a Cubs fan. They are picked to win the division again, and they have played pretty solidly these first five games. Here's to hoping!!
