In other news, since the journal facelift post the other days, I've been periodically going back and rereading+tagging my older LJ entries when I wasn't working on the house or whatever. I've almost gotten through 2002 now, and it's been an interesting journey back in time. I'd forgotten just how rough a year 2002 was for me, and for laurie_robey, and just how much better things are now by comparison. (Starbucks. *shiver* Three months of pure physical torture.)
Plus, y'know, we've got Buddha now, and he makes everything better. :)
 laurie_robey thinks it was a different woman; I think it was the same woman but changed by the rigors of 2007.
