Thank you so much for your thoughts and well wishes. I am healing very well, and am grateful!
Mark and I got news yesterday - our dear friends and landlords aren't able to afford living here either. They are packing up and selling this beautiful house. We will have to move out by May 1. Everyone is sad, but it is part of life and the economy - we live close enough to the SF Bay Area where our affordable little houses in the redwoods are now very high in value, and we're being priced out of even these little houses. A place I used to rent in San Francisco in the 1990s for $550/month is now going for $3000/month. Easily taken, too.
So, we are planning to move back up to Nevada City, where my family lives and the rent is still affordable. It is very sad, leaving these redwoods. We have lived here for 12 years. But it's not our fight, unfortunately.
So I might be a little quiet for a while, but it's only because we are figuring out the transition - but you never know, sometimes people say they'll be quiet and then they can't shut up ;)
Love you guys. Glad you're coming with me. :)
