Thanks so much...

... for your support.

Voting in my son's drumming contest ended yesterday.  He says it has been a terrific experience and he values the opportunity to see and hear so many fabulous drummers.  He is especially grateful to everyone who took the time to vote for him.  I'll let you know how it all comes out.

Thanks again.

That's That.


Feeling just a little down again today.  Spent my day off clearing out the storage unit.  Not quite done - son needs to get his stuff out, have to call the rubbish company to pick up the baby crib (sniff) and still have a few pieces of furniture to load up and bring home.  But today I hauled a half-dozen SUV loads of plastic boxes filled with memorabilia home.  It's all stacked in front of one of the family room windows.  Feels like we're living in a  - well - in a storage unit.

And like I took a giant step backwards.

I know I'll feel better when I send that check into my Tokyo savings account rather than to the storage company, but right now it feels...

...like defeat.

I guess I've been feeling stuck all week and this didn't help.

Have a nice four-day weekend coming up, though.  And a full moon.  That should help.

I guess.
