    I just realized that usually by this time of year, I'll have had at least one suicidal (without wanting to be) breakdown. PB really seems to be working it's magic. That alone is worth it. Not having to argue with my brain about suicide is a miracle. Doing it without drugs? That's downright wondrous.
    I've also reached a very... I guess you could say "Zen", but that's not the right word... outlook on life. I've always had a variation on "I'll live life as it comes, no regrets," type outlook, but it's much more Michael Valentine Smith. I'm a lot calmer, a lot less excitable,... It's almost like I finally grew into those shoes I put on all those years ago. I've lost that childlike "my world is ending, wahhhhh!!!" I had at one point (don't get me wrong, after some spectacularly shitastic news, I still get that) and finally found that "Well, fuck. Oh well, life goes on." I've been aiming for. I guess the main thing that shifted my perspective was realizing, emotionally, that I don't have be my mother's mother. Between that and watching her fight her own battles at the end of her mother's life, something really caught hold. My life is my own, not to be lived as a barrier, an airbag, or a whipping boy, but to be lived as I see fit. I can learn from others' mistakes (like I did about credit cards from my parents), but I cannot solve others' lives. That's for them to figure out. "Be good" doesn't mean "be a superheroine." It means "Be good."
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    It's our 1st anniversary. We're going to either Red Lobster or The Barn Door (read: expensive steak place), then to a pool hall (many of our first dates happened at the pool hall if they didn't involve a park), then.... we'll go from there. Love to you all, smiles all around, and thou art god. I'll be Bach.

    Thanks, y'all. We're home digesting before we go play pool or stargaze.

    Dinner:
    1/2 cheddar biscuit
    calamari, deep fried broccoli (discovered I despise deep fried broccoli), 1 mozz cheese stick
    "caesar" salad (romaine, Parmesan, and maybe 2 teaspoon of their dressing)
    1/2 lb snow crab, 6 grilled shrimp, steamed broccoli w/ lemon butter, and stuffed flounder (There was corn in the so- call seafood stuffing)
