As things have shaken out after my small and sudden freakout, I'm going to stay with Strider for the duration of my displacement.
I'm very psyched. Not only to be living with her for the first time in what- 15 years?- but to spend time with Ems the Wonderdog and her two new fuzzfaces, Clem and Hildie. And have a family Thanksgiving and get to cook dinners for my favorite daughter.
So it's just fixing the details now. Making a list, checking it twice, then doing all that needs doing. It's gonna be all right, anyway, as well as and in spite of, all these chutes and ladders. Cuz I have a daughter what kicks ass.
