8 years ago I posted this" http://kittenspeaks.livejournal.com/557969.html
I had just arrived in Chicago and I was excited about so many many things. I was right to be. My 8 years here have changed me in so many ways. It took a few years but I reconnected with theater, I made a better connection with film and television, I connected with a new side of music, I connected with a man who I made my husband.

8 years

Now, as a mere 8 years have passed, I am preparing to say goodbye to Chicago. I am arranging myself for major life changes.
In the end of February Wonderful Husband™ and I will be moving to L.A.(ish).
And that isn't even the biggest change.
In the end of March Wonderful Husband™ will be moving to Japan for 13 months to work at Universal Studios Japan as part of the Harry Potter Experience (he's a wizard!!).

13 Months

It is so much to think about and prepare for and anticipate. I think about being away from him for 13 months and my heart breaks. I think about what he is sacrificing so we can both focus on our careers and not have to stress over safety jobs and I know that he, and these 13 months, are worthy of my heartbreak. I know I have to work harder than I ever have on my career to make myself worthy of this sacrifice he is making.

8 years

So many people here have touched my life. They have made me better and stronger and I will miss them. Many of them have already made that westerly move and I am excited and reassured to be joining them.

13 Months

It will be a long time to not have him as part of my day to day. There will be visits to Japan in which time I will fill my heart and my senses with him and with the newness of my first genuine foreign land.

Tonight
We will spend it turning the calendar with one of my favorite theater family members and lifting glasses high in cheer of the future and of all of the love and support we have as we make this next huge step in our lives. It really couldn't be a more perfect way to make this moment.

Stay Safe. Stay Happy. Know that your are loved.
Happy New Year Everyone!

My 4 by 40 quest- I FOUND A GROUPON!! Thanks to you wonderful people I have raised the funds needed for my 4 by 40 Skydiving Trip. I am going to push just a little more to sweeten the deal- I only need 65.00 more to take Pete with me on this plummet to earth. Even if you aren't so much into celebrating my brithday I know there are some of you that would love to see him take the jump.
With 145.00 I can take Pete with me AND I can get pictures of it all. For 175.00 I can take Pete with me and get pictures AND video of it.
What'cha say? Just a few dollars....

Here's the long sloppy link to donate.
*Edit- Mady a tide link for it
