today was the day...

that we were going to get into our van and drive west.  And we weren't going to stop till we reached the ocean.  Really, we were.  We had the moving van scheduled, the real estate agent was called, the walls were painted, stuff was purged, and there are a few boxes still packed in the garage.  But plans changed.  So here we will be, for another year.  For another hot summer and another cold winter.    I have to say, I was excited for change.  And I guess it will still come, just next year.

In other news, I made beef jerky.  Yeah, it was pretty great.  Go ahead, be jealous.

It will go by fast.
I see a good learning opportunity: Go Oregon Trail style, move in a covered wagon. It will take some good shoes and lots of food and water. And now you have a year to plan it.

You're moving back home? You better come visit VA at least once before you do! :)
