What A Difference A Year Makes

Almost exactly a year ago I wrote this not-a-Valentine's-Day post on the problems of learning how to date when you're an adult.

At that time I never expected to start dating someone 2500 miles away (in fact, I recall distinct plans to avoid long-distance relationships completely), or drive cross-country to bring her back to Ohio, or end up being a sneaky sneaker who sneaks. But once we decided to live together, we thought we should have a civil marriage right away just so the kids will know that it's something stable. We're going to have a more properish wedding in April with family and friends.

So I haven't been on LJ much lately because I've been busy domestically, mixed in with writing and research for the new book. (I tend to dismiss the struggling artist stereotypes, but that's just because I write more when I'm happy at home. I know it's different for different writers.)

Thanks to everyone who offered congratulations to us on Rae's blog and by email. If you'd told me a year ago that any of this was in my future, I would've mocked you. I guess the mock's on me. It's a small price to pay in trade.
