2012 was a rough year for ol' Sarge.
My boyfriend's parents both went through life threatening illnesses, I developed what I now know was clinical depression, ended my relationship with my boyfriend of 9 years, was immediately informed that my parents were also splitting up, had to find a new apartment in the tightest rental market in a decade, moved out, and lived alone for the first time in my life. This story has a very happy ending, in that I got the treatment I needed for my depression, my boyfriend and I reconciled, and my parents reconciled. When I was in the thick of it I couldn't imagine ever feeling good again, but I can honestly say I am as happy as I have been in my adult life. Needless to say, however, I was feeling pretty low for awhile. And when you are feeling down on yourself and your life, there is no worse place to go than the blogosphere, where people present only the shiniest and best moments of their lives.
Now that I am back on track, I find myself itching to discuss my latest eBay scores, redecorating schemes, and other utterly inane topics. Since I can only email my Mom and best friend so many times a day, I will try bringing some of my chatter over here to Sarge in Charge. However, life isn't all new Rachel Comey boots and mid century credenzas (although it should be, to paraphrase Lisa VanderPump)-- and some of that may show up here too.
If any of you are still hanging around, thanks for waiting! I've missed this dumb little blog.
