A month displaced

Today marks a month since I left my home of six years in Dallas.

The upshot is that Laurel and I are safely back in Colorado and we have food, shelter and sufficient clothing. We left the majority of our household baggage in Texas, but it's really just stuff.

I'm about to head to Phoenix for a week of getting my kitty fix and some quiet downtime with an old friend, during which I hope to do a lot of the writing I want to catch you up and document my thoughts. Laurel will start fifth grade in just over a month at the same school my younger brother and sister attended and I will share the action plan I've put together with the help of friends and family to work on getting my legs beneath me and improve Laurel's and my lives for the better. (Er, that doesn't look right. Feel free to take a red pen to it.)

I love all of you and am thankful that you've hung in there with me through this difficult year.

I've been thinking of you obsessively & am happy to hear things are progressing. I think you're brave & wonderful.

I'm so glad you're on this positive path for both you and Laurel!

That's okay. I'm not a teacher on weekends and I'm fresh out of red pens. Have fun in Phoenix and you'll have to tell me if Two Tacos is still in Tempe. They used to be really good a long time ago.

I think it's grammatically correct; you probably could have broken it up into two sentences for readability. :)

Glad to hear you're doing okay.

Thanks for my waffle! Think of you often and am hoping all goes well for you.

There are a lot of poeple pulling for you--some you don't even know about, but who found you via my LJ. They ask about you often and care, too!

Hugs and hugs.

Hooray for the month!

Also, Phoenix. I've got friends down there too. And if you ever wanna come up to Seattle again, you can crash with me in Ballard!

I've got friends here but the one I want to introduce to the friend I'm staying with is crazy busy this week. (Boo. But maybe I can arrange a blind date for them later.

Do not tempt me to visit Seattle. I have more people to do and places to see there than I think I could fit into a week or two. (:

I hope that you are enjoying your downtime. Much needed by the sound of it.

I am enjoying it immensely, although I insist that my friend is spoiling me (they say I am spoiling them with cooking) and that the cat and I are making nefarious plans (we may be, but I'm sworn to secrecy).

It looks more permanent written down, doesn't it? *hugs*
