Well here we are

In Michigan. all of the boxes are unpacked but all of the rooms are not put together. We hung a few things in the living room today.... pictures will follow when we're all finished, but I will tell you that I never expected to have this many taxidermied items in my living space. (Stew on THAT till the pics are up.)

So much has happened since the last post! All of the things that I listed here as a matter of fact.
Except that I didn't have a crying fit. Much as I had hoped/expected, as soon as Drake got back he took over and wrapped up the move like a pro. I was very thankful for that. Then I slept for a week.

An aside... Does the new Mercedes E-Class really drive itself? It stops the car if you don't, wakes you up when you're sleeping, and nudges you back into your lane if you wander.

OK. So you all know about the Cash for Clunkers program? Well, if you've ridden in our car you would assume (as we did) that our car would qualify handily. well it doesn't. the gas mileage is too good! curse you, Toyota, for making such a durable and fuel-efficient car!

Also I have a terrible cough. I went to the doctor, and she said that it sounded like it was only upper respiratory-- but what she didn't know was that I had just eaten a peppermint which had cleared it! Drake said that there's no way that a single peppermint could make the difference between early detection of pneumonia and upper respiratory congestion. He lacks imagination.

You & Drake are not the only friends of mine to move to Michigan this month... My friend Matt is a nurse/EMT in/around Detroit somewhere, living in Ann Arbor with his new bride. Should he need roving musicians or photographers, I'll let you know. Similarly, should you need nursing, I'll put you in touch ;)

Should you need the Amish, my aunt's town has many. Just head north on I-70 until you feel you're halfway to Canada and then turn left. :)
