A year in review

Last year, I had just moved out here with shiny new job. I was anticipating a long relationship with a fancy new startup. I was worried about whether my marriage was going to end entirely. I had just met this new guy with a brain and having an amazing time hanging out with him, I was making other friends with aerialists, and I was finding an amazing world here. It was a generally lovely life.

Then, over the course of the last year, I filed for divorce because the marriage was not going to improve, got pregnant (it seems immediately after such), ended up ending a relationship with the "CEO" of the new startup because he tried to tell me I should have given him the option of helping raise the baby even though he didn't like the guy I'd gotten pregnant with and was worried it would be "ugly" and damn it he already had responsibilities to his wife et cetera, got divorced, got married, and had said child.

I had to end any contact at all with the CEO because he got nasty (I apparently am around to ruin men). I wanted to say goodbye, but considering how nasty he'd gotten recently and the fact that I was already run down enough just wasn't going to give him the chance to be nasty some more. I think he wants a family but that was not the form of my relationship with him because he had other damn responsibilities. The pretty aerial society I had spent so much energy in getting running in Albuquerque has been inundated by creepers (one a rapist, one an abuser) so I lost a friendship with his wife and have strained relations with another dear friend because I went WTF IS FUCKING WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE on everyone? They've lost many of their best and most loyal aerialists because of this and man, I'm so sad.

So I'm trying not to look back and only look towards the future. I gained a child, a husband who really is sweet and amazing and treats my daughter as his own, new friends here, new aerialists here, and a new life. I'm excited.

I wish my mother had been able to meet my new child.

People keep telling me I don't need to be so strong, that I seem way too together.

I can't exactly afford to fall apart.

What, exactly, is the alternative supposed to be?

negative

10 phone calls and a preparation to get a lawyer involved later they told me Jadyn's results were negative.

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas to everyone!

If you don't celebrate it, that's fine... I hope it is a good day anyway.

Upcoming show

Reserve soon if you are interested in going. We have limited seating left and a lot of interest where no one has reserved.

Location is 1715 5th Street NW

Call the number at the bottom of the flier to reserve your spot. If you want confirmation, ask for a callback (otherwise if you don't get a callback, assume your space is reserved). Be there 15 minutes ahead of schedule or your spot disappears. Bring a pillow if you want something to sit on. If you have knee problems, there will be some chairs. I'm trying to arrange softer seating, but may only be somewhat successful.

I burn my feet a little bit at Aerials every time to build callous.

Overdid it yesterday. Ouch!

Happy thought

Patience is a virtue.

One I completely lack.

Sent my husband to urgent care today. Apparently he has shingles. Good thing I have refused to touch his spots.
