Milestones upcoming and past. This helps me stay aware of what a given period of time feels like.

  • Just under a month until I see my dad, maybe for the last time.
  • One month exactly until I turn 30.
  • Two months (when the music executives are all back in their offices after the holidays) until we can really get back to trying to pitch our songs.
  • Three months, maybe four, until I can pay off the heaviest credit card I now carry.
  • Four months until the system I work on is widely released.
  • Five months until the Country Music Marathon.
  • Two years until I pay off my credit cards under the new, more aggressive payment plan.
  • Two years and four months until we can buy a house.
  • Two years and eight months since we left California.
  • Almost two years since I stopped dating other people.
  • A year and ten months since we left Portland.
  • Nine months since we came to Nashville.

    Wow. That’s a lot of milestones.

    No, no, I’m not even going there. 🙂

    *hugs* to you. You’ve come a long way in the last few years.

    If the first statement means you’ll be back in Chicago around Christmastime, and if you think you can spare it (and I will totally understand if you can’t), I’d like to have an hour or two of your time, for coffee or the like. It’d be nice to see you again. 🙂

    I’ll be thinking about you and your dad, with hopes that the visit is wonderful, and that you are cherished by him as much as you cherish him. I’m aching for you all.

    Speaking as someone well into her 40s (no, I’m not pulling the age card ;-)), the 30s are quite wonderful.

    Thank you for your sympathy and wishes. I know he does cherish me, and I think it’s going to be a very emotional visit.

    There are aspects I’m looking forward to and aspects I’m not so sure about. Maybe that’s a separate post. 😉

    It would be lovely to see you, too. I have no idea if there will be time, although if you’re free to travel to Park Forest (about 30 miles south of the Loop) it’d make it a lot more likely. Email me (kate at honeybowtie dot com) and we’ll sort out the details.

    Either way, I hope you have happy holidays!
