I am returning to SP after a hiatus - just about everything in my life has changed since I've been here, and I really don't know how to sum that up other than to say the job, the marriage, and the home I had before are all gone. I am rebuilding those other parts, and taking some time to focus on lowering my stresses, stressers, and responses.

For once, I'm not deleting a profile and starting over. I'm just building on the strength I already have.

I'll be 40 in a couple of months, and I'd like to celebrate that with a trip to onederland.
