It was the first year ever that it passed without blood being drawn, without violence and without bitter arguments. Was I surprised? You can bet I was...
A few times I caught myself panicking, my heart rate creeping up and tears forming behind my eyes - but I turned and saw Will and the falling stopped.
No tears, no arguments, no pain... well fuck me this must be what Christmas is 'supposed' to be like.
And now we're stuck in this odd time between Christmas and New Year... do you get back to 'normal', do you carry on relaxing? Do you think over the year passed, or the year to come? Do you think of things to give up, or things to take up?
Will it be a New Years Resolution, or a New Years Revolution?
Let's hope it'll be better than last year... but I don't want to build up ideas of perfection or grandure... I hope 2009 will work on what I achieved last year, and instead of taking steps backwards... will move forwards.
Of course there'll be a few bumps along the road...
... wouldn't be life otherwise, would it ;)
