i'm not sure who really wants to hear the details of how we found a place, it was nothing short of miraculous. as was the unpacking of the truck by dan's crew. seven of us moving faster than ants carrying large loads. will write more later....hopefully will get internet soon but after we leave our little cluttered econolodge room this morning thats it unless we find library time. suffice to say there is a ton of work to do trying to fight my way through the crazily packed boxes and hurry up and make this place livable so we can get to work with dan soon.
i have to say the one thing i hate is those damn 'palmetto bugs' which is just a nice way of saying 2 inch shit filled cockroaches. i've already seen their dead dry corpses in every place we've looked to live. there is no avoiding them. i remember them from arizona....such dreaded grotesque things. you find them in the middle of the night on the tip of your toothbrush. they are anywhere and everywhere and i saw a handful of them (dead) in our new diggs. gross. maybe i will be too busy to care, long as they leave me alone when i sleep i will try to keep my 'man up' 'tude. it's a dichotomy, one of the hardest things i've ever done but also the easiest in other ways. haven't quite wrapped my brain around it and maybe i'm better off not thinking much more about it.
thanks for ALL WELL WISHES and thoughts in regards to us finding a place and getting a good start here. the work has yet to start, the real work that called to us here in the first place. we look forward to getting our hands dirty soon, to being involved with dan and his crew and learning!
