Just a short note to let you know that I am now in California. The last month has been difficult, but with the help of numerous people, I have made it through. Friends are vital to our survival. And we don't really know how important they are until things get rough.
I now have good friends in two places in the world. I am sure some of you have learned how to keep friends even at long distances. Share those experiences with me, will you? These friends are keepers, for sure!
We will take possession of our new house tomorrow. Nesting should help me to feel a sense of connection that is lacking right now. We expect the moving van to arrive about the middle of the month and then the unpacking will begin in earnest.
As I sit at my computer (or rather a somewhat random collection of cast-off peripherals connected to my computer), my little black kitty Chloe is curled up in my lap purring. I do think she missed me! I sure missed her.
