11/8 One year

One year ago today I left Milwaukee. My trip took me back home to Quincy, IL for several days. Then I drove to NC, arriving on 11/14, Rob's birthday. Rob and Beata opened their home to me for a few months while I did disaster mental health work for the Red Cross.

I stayed there until March 1 when I began the job with LSSDR in Biloxi.

Can't believe it's been one year since I left Wisconsin. One year since I've done stand-up. One year since I've done sketch comedy with BroadMinded. One year since...lots of things.

But I'm not sad. I miss all those things certainly, but I love where I am and what I'm doing.

Tonight though I miss my puppies. Am leaving very early tomorrow for New York, so I had to put them in the kennel already.

This weekend will be a ton of fun. Am going to Mohonk Mountain House in the Hudson Valley. Will try to post while I'm there.

You'd BETTER have a ton of fun. Or I probably won't.

How fun is it that now I arrive on Rob's birthday this year? I'm so excited to be going to visit Rob & Beata.

Jill, you lucky duck!! Have fun and email pictures.

Jer-have fun in New York, one place I hope to visit someday. It's hard to believe it's been one year already since you left WI.

What fun to sign on and see some comments. Well, DF, we already know I'm having fun. Hope you are too.

Jill, can't believe you are finally going to see your brother after all this time, and finally meet your sis.

Kelly, this is definitely different than NYC. We're on a mountain, surrounded by snow, in a fantastic hotel, and I don't have a winter coat. More later. :)
