...

It used to be easy to write journals here. Not so much anymore. I have opened this window several times and just left it blank. So, I guess this is a warm up.

Clu and I have been married now for 16 years. (Well...16.5 if you want to be technical about it.
Baby G is 9 now. Almost 10.
Abba Zabba, Jasper and Simon have all passed on. We now serve Mister Fitzwilliam Darcy, Finnegan Seamus O'Malley and Pip.
I still teach, but now I also coordinate a large academic program at my school.
I drink my coffee black now.
I have read a lot more books, though not as many as I should have. Recent favorites include The Night Circus, American Gods, Freedom, Persepolis, and Room. I'm moving back into historical fiction lately.
I love Taylor Swift's 1989 album. No really. And having a pre-teen daughter has totally changed what I listen to, though we have avoided both Justin Beiber and Miley Cyrus. Not to worry though, she gets all the classics too.

There are other things, but maybe those are for another time.
