Just in case any of you are out there reading and wondering or are named Meredith and coincidentally also are my best friend, I am, in fact, alive and well.
The move to South Cackalacky went really well. I'm still unpacking and am attempting to fully settle into a new apartment (and a new state) in about five days. Its been a chaotic, hellish, exhausting week.
I'll write more as soon as I'm able!
