There is so much to say, but you'll all have to wait until Wednesday or Thursday because I'm on a library computer and don't have time to bang it all out. My computer pooped out sometime between Miami and Vancouver. Amazingly, the documents/photos/etc... part of the hard drive is intact, but the booting up part is corrupted, so in two days and $150, I will once again be able to post/Skype/email/etc...
The short version: not having Leo around is insanely hard. Vancouver, however, is incredible. I was hoping it would really suck actually, but it's everything I wanted and more... except that my husband isn't here, which is a really fucking big "except."
All of this means that I will either be ecstatic or else doubly depressed in 6 weeks.
Once again, thank you all for your good thoughts and loving prayers. Expect an update very soon.
