Are We There Yet?

I'm not really out of hiatus. Actually, it may be a little longer than I expected because—are you ready for this—I Haz A House!

We sign this Friday.

On Friday, I will be running around like a mad woman getting utilities turned on and MOVING.

I am hiring movers for the big furniture, but Greg and I will move boxes. I really don't want people touching my boxes. If something's going to get broken, I'd rather know I did it.

Sooo…taking into account that I still haven't found a provider, it might be up to a week before I'm online again. I will be able to check email from my g-mail account if I can find a wireless connection. If you want to write me, the addy is: (my full name) at

Until I find a provider, gmail will be the most reliable way to reach me.

I am excited that this nightmare is nearly at an end. Greg and I agreed that this particular move has been the most stressful event in our entire lives—even worse than Hurricane Rita when we lived without power for a month. That gives you some indication on how bad this has been.

The marathon of grueling trials we had to endure for the last three months, topped with injuries, surgeries, and other sundry hurricanes tested us body and soul, but the light is at the end of the tunnel--and this time it's not a train coming at us.

I want to take a moment to thank all my friends, many of you who wrote to check up on me. You guys remind me how lucky I am. I love you guys. Thank you!

I hope things will line out by November. I know my life will be better in 2009. I'm planning on it!

Talk to you soon.

I was just wondering about you! I'm so glad you're going home at last.
