Hello again! After two weeks of frankly, pure hellish upheaval, I am finally able to return to my project. I have finally packed up the bulk of my condo into a 10'x15' storage unit, left a few sticks of furniture, threw out about 40% of my belongings, and moved my travel supplies into a 5'x7' payload minivan plus Mavis. I can't tell you how grateful I am to finally be returning to this project. Before I move on, however, I would like to thank all of those who helped me pack and move, including my mom, my sister, Bill, Liz, Rik, my aunt, my uncle, and other members of my extended friend family (you know who you are). Mavis was no help at all. She doesn't seem bothered by that.
So....I'm finally able to put my past life in my rear view window. On to bigger and better things! I've stopped to do my laundry, rearrange my car, and get ready to get the hell outta town.
...and away we go!
