So, here's where my story begins.
I was married in 2002, to a guy I met the first day of college in 1997.
We had an amazing little boy, Zach, in 2004.
We moved around a lot, away from our families, and eventually settled about an hour away from "home".
Things were not always easy, and when I found some information that I was not at all pleased about, I decided that I couldn't do it anymore. I fought it, long and hard, but decided that life is too darn short to be unhappy.
So I told him I was done, and moved out in January 2010.
Here I am, a year later- almost to the exact day. Tomorrow will be a year out on my own.
I made it through the year just fine, for the most part. I am doing much better than I have in a LOOONG time.
I am HAPPY again.
I am ME again. Or at least, pretty damn close to it.
I am so much stronger than I ever could have thought about being.
So when 2010 was drawing to a close, I got to thinking. I'm in the process of rediscovering who I am. Who is Sara? So I came up with a list of things that I'd like to do before my next big birthday, 35.
August 25, 2013
I've got 2 1/2 years.
Age hasn't ever bothered me so far, and hopefully I will continue on that path. It's just a number. I sure don't feel 32, currently. Maybe it's because most of my friends that I hang out with on a normal basis are younger. I don't know.
But I came up with things that I've always wanted to do, or that I feel would make my life richer, more complete, more worthwhile.
And this blog is my way of documenting my journey, my trip, my adventure.
Welcome to the crazy train!
