I’m still here, folks. I’ve just been a busy girl. Specifically, I moved after 18 (yes, eighteen) years at my last place. Although it had been 18 years, moving sucks just as badly as I remembered. But the new apartment is so much better. It’s bigger, it’s brighter and the neighborhood is so peaceful. I can hear birds chirping every morning and there are constantly bunnies hopping around my back yard.

I’m extremely grateful that I “konmari-ed” most of my stuff a few months ago which made it a little bit easier but – from the very back of the shed, I found boxes that hadn’t been touched since I packed them up from my childhood bedroom more than 20 years ago. I got a little bit emotional because I thought most of that stuff was long gone.

In other news, I turn 40 years old one month from today (HOLY FUCKING SHIT) and I’ll be kicking my year off seeing the New Kids on the Block lives for the first time. Turning 40 years old while partying like I’m 12.

I’m also looking forward to another Bruins victory tonight in the Stanley Cup Finals. I want this Cup almost as badly as I want Super Bowl championships. Can you imagine Boston hosting its THIRD parade in nine months?! It would be a giant middle finger to the rest of the country… and I can’t wait for it! *fingers crossed*

Until next time…
