Ready for another boring year

When I look back at 2015, I think, "Wow, nothing really happened." The only thing remotely interesting was that we bought the electric space car, and thus proved that going all-EV was possible as a new normal. Otherwise, we had the same address all year, and I had the same job all year. That was gloriously routine.

This year, I thought might be the same, but I've already been forced into a job change. We're definitely not moving though. Simon going to third grade might be hard, but we're hoping getting him on an IEP will help with that. So once I get the job thing settled, my hope is that this year is otherwise relatively uneventful. Less chaos would be good.

It's so weird to think about how much chaos there has been for the last decade of my life. I met Diana in 2007, and in the the 11 years since, I've had one child, moved six times a total of 6,000 miles and had five jobs. That's a lot of change, even if most of it was voluntary. The weird thing is that 2005 me would have been horrified by this, but today me finds this to be somewhat normal.

I'm ready for less chaos. I'd like to continue to have vacation adventures (can't wait to return to NY, for example), but for job and domestic life, less is more. I can roll with all of that change, but I would be totally OK with having less of it.
