Here I am, 39. When I was young I thought at such an enormous age I’d have my life down pat. Um, not so much.

But I’m really proud of myself. During the last year I have made a lot of change towards the better. Started new things like playing the guitar and not-eating-chocolate-in-the-kitchen every night. And the most important change of all, working on being a musician. This time for real. No more “But I don’t have the time!” and “I’ll do it tomorrow!” excuses.

So far I’ve had a very nice birthday with Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, gifts of self made or cut flowers by my two men, and then

I GOT THIS!!!!!

Just what a girl wants. You can keep all your fancy shoes if you like.

P.S.: Well, actually I got half of that, but I ordered it nonetheless and in a week or so I’ll have the laptop I’ve always wanted since apple made the first ibooks. In orange. But I’ll settle for white, when it’s ten times as fast.

  3. I know that feeling. I’m glad you know what to do to make it go away.

    Good luck.

  4. so many things to say – first – THANKS!

    second…smokes and musicians..you mysterious alluring woman, you.

    and for the depression. i agree w/ meno, you know what to do, and what a blessing that is, in spite of how you are feeling right now…take care.

  5. There ARE deep reasons. There always are, there simply must be for depression to exist. If you could find those reasons, you could begin to kill the depression.

    Do you have any ideas about what could be causing it?

  6. Susanne, I love you more than ever for this post. Especially once you got to number 5. Not just because I love the loopy spiral of thoughts and spotty discourse, but because it oozes with glorious humanity. And maybe because I relate quite a bit right now. Who ever knew a meme could be so illuminating?
