I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!
It was, you know, a fairly significant happening in my life and then I promptly forgot to return and report!
I've been home now since June and it is wonderful. For the first time in my life I've put down roots of my own. I'm here to stay...until it's time to go somewhere else (which I have no plans for now, I've just learned not to say never). For now, I'm right where I need to be and I feel so blessed.
