Happiest time

I think this is the happiest time in my life.

My son is thriving. He's learning, moving around, talking (sort of), interacting with other people, and excited about life in general. The parenting thing has stopped being hard - I'm no longer tired at the end of the day just on account of being a parent. I'm past the point of worrying about developmental delays - he's overcome most of them already. I don't have the whole medical issues thing hanging over me anymore, either. The kid is as healthy as a horse. A healthy horse.

My husband is wonderful, we own our own house, my job may be dead-end but it's stable for now, I feel optimistic about my art, I have one eye on the future, it's springtime, no cats are currently on their deathbeds, the world hasn't exploded yet, and I've been making some very tasty meals in the crockpot.

I'm not saying everything is perfect - if someone asked me what I would like right now, I'd be able to rattle off a list. (Sorry, nothing on my list would make a good birthday present.) But I am saying it seems pretty darn good. It IS pretty darn good. I'm not used to things being pretty darn good, but I think they are. I could get used to this.

Greater social investment in sustainable energies... that would be nice.

  1. The kid is as healthy as a horse. A healthy horse. That made me giggle! I am so glad that life is so good right now! I've been pondering my life lately and trying to figure out what changes I could make to be happier, so it is good to hear a happiness success story!
