Yeah, I moved over to facebook, and I've been neglecting my LJ. Which is a shame because FB doesn't really keep anything like a chronological journal of events that I can look through later.
Much of the previous gap in my journal has been me being really depressed, which is another reason I just stopped writing. I don't want to write about being depressed any more than folks want to read about it.
All that changed last April (almost a year ago now), when I finally got a full time job with people who actually seem to respect my skills and experience. Feeling like I'm useful has certainly helped, and the money (although not great) is far better than no money. Getting rid of the continual anxiety caused by monthly bills I can't pay has been a major relief as well.
Yesterday, we finally got the inheritance from Linda's mom's estate. Its been delayed so many times I was wondering if we would ever get it, so I didn't want to mention it and jinx anything. Now that its actually here though, we can consider replacing the car, which has been on its last legs for quite some time now, and getting a much newer and more intact model. Somehow I suspect the next car will be another Volvo as both Linda and I have been very happy with that brand.
