So much has happened since my last post.  And I feel awful about not posting as much as I should be.  There is one fact that has kept me from blogging.  TV has just been mediocre.

And there’s a lot to be said about being able to watch TV online, or even when it comes out on DVD.  Because I am not above waiting for that. 

Among the most important things that has happened in my life since the new year has started, is my engagement, gentle readers.   Yes, you guessed it.  Chriso proposed, and I couldn’t be more excited about anything  in my entire life.

Looking back at the last year and a half, it’s amazing that I didn’t document more personal stuff  in the blog.  When my ex and I broke up in November, 2007, I literally thought I was going to die.  I had no sense of direction or purpose and I really though things would never get better.  The darkness the had descended at that time had almost no hope of ever being lifted.  And I threw myself into blogging, and TV and I felt better.

It took me an entire year to be fully okay with how things ended.  And I’m even happy for M’s relationship success at this point.  No, really.  I am. 

But I think the last year is a testament to how much stronger a person I am than I once was.  And it’s amazing how much good can come of hard times, emotionally or otherwise.  I’ve definitely become a wiser person.

And Chriso tells me that I am not as “high maintenance” as I once was. 

High maintenance.  Pfft!

ANYway.  For the first time in a long time I really feel like things are falling into place.  Even though I was “ready” before… I think I’m more ready now.  And I think things are going to be much better than I could ever imagine.

For the first time, I really feel like I can go anywhere and do anything.  And it’s amazing that anywhere between 5 and 10 years ago, I had considered the same ideas and was completely terrified by them.

So, Chriso and I are getting married! 

This was the way things were meant to be.
