Just checking in to say "HI" and wondering how things are with you.
I am OK. My bf may be striking it rich soon because he owns land under which a bunch of natural gas has been found/drilled/pumped. It will be interesting to see what he is like once he has monies.
Work is long and hard, but summer is on the way out, which is good. I have to work with people a lot and I am not a people person, so it can be trying. Other times it feels good and OK and even fun.
I went to a quick family reunion this week with folks I've never met -- descendants of my great-grandmother's youngest sister (born 15 years apart). Also toured my mother's house -- the family homestead -- which has been totally redone. It was my first time in the house since I sold it. I was dreading it. Even sobbing myself to sleep at night worrying about having to go and see it. But then on THE DAY, everything was easy and fine and I didn't freak out at all. I'm even glad that I went.
My cats are my best friends, still. They are always happy to see me when I get home and they follow me around the house.
Let me know how you are.
