Moving

Through some interesting turns of fate and providence, I will be moving.  A house has become available through the kind generosity of some of my constituents.  I'm invited to live there, paying only utilities.  My [one-way] commute to work will be 2.2 miles (instead of 18.6 miles).  Instead of a 30 minute drive, it will be 10 minutes, on a busy day.

Enlarged to show texture.
There will be room for my genetic offspring to visit, spend the night, make a meal, watch a movie, and have good daddy time.  Important stuff right now. 

And,  this means I will have lots of room for company, too.  So plan your visit now.  I do love hosting folk.

C&S, my gracious hosts for the last two years (and several months) have been the most wonderfullest folk I could ever imagine living with.  It has been an easy thing.  We've gotten along well, been very compatible, and enjoyable.  They will still be around and always be friends. Thank you, boys, for so much love and kindness, fun and good meals, hugs and understanding.  You're the best!

So, this will be a new chapter, in a way.  I need to add I am adding new disciplines to my life: walking more, cooking, balancing my work and personal life, getting finances organized and under control.  Frightening thought, doing all that.

One day at a time.

So a new place! Thats so good. Being close to work can be good, it will add to quality of life. I moved closer to work, and wow what a difference it is making.

On sharing your testimony, its good to do that both for yourself but also for those who hear it. It helps.

Congrats on your new digs. Nothing like a new environment to enable new habits! Kudos to your friends for their generosity and to you for yours. I hope we'll be reading about lots of guests!

A new 'chapter' should have a concrete ritual to it, like a new place. Good for you! May it all be marvelous.

Congrats on the new digs. I guess you were ready so the universe responded.

I am happy for you.

This is really cool news. Congratulations!

I'm sure both you and C&S will be happier. Although you guys are close friends, there is still no substitute for privacy.

Miss you xoxo

Congratulations! I think it's great that at your age you've decided to finally tackle the sorts of developmental tasks that most non-institutionalized adults master by their mid-20's. And to think you're a spiritual leader to others! Well, isn't that special!

Well, anonymous, what a snarky comment! And anonymous, at that. Why do the bullies usually come out as "anonymous."

Congrats on the new place to live! May privacy be a gateway to much happiness! :)
