Happy 2007!!

Is it a relief to anyone else to finally find the holidays behind us? All that prep work, all that planning, and then *poof*, it's done. I, for one, am glad for it.

It seems that late 2006 was a baby-making year. I personally know four people who just announced that they are pregnant, one of which happens to be my best friend. Another friend of mine recently told me that best-frienddom ends once marriage enters the picture. She must be right, because I had no inkling that my best friend wanted to have a baby now (or, three months ago, incidentally). I am officially out of the loop.

News like this inevitably makes me reflect on my own life and its apparent stagnation. Everyone is pursuing careers and creating families and doing that which makes them happy. It's time I make me happy. I am tired of being the person who is always there for everyone else.

I applied to a few jobs in Oregon today and am researching the safest Portland neighborhoods to live in. Any recommendations, Oregonians? Mexico may have to wait...I'm ready to leave Minnesota.

    I can understand the fresh start feeling. Take care of yourself and make YOU happy! Here's to new beginnings! Keep us posted. I, too, am enjoying the quiet around here today.

    kashi, regarding portland, the pearl district is an up and coming area, lots of activities, cafes, etc...Beaverton and Tigard are two suburbs easily accessible by car or commuter train. I used to own a home in Beaverton and I liked it alot. Also the Southwest neighborhood is nice. Good luck in your job search and your new year!

    Welcome back...Nothing wrong with reassessing where you are, but try not to be swayed by what your friends are doing...everyone's timetable for living their life is different. Good luck with the Oregon search.
