Almost Here (or Almost There)
Today is another lovely day in State College, PA. Possibly as lovely as yesterday. October in my neck of the woods can be quite lovely. It is coming to an end very soon. In a few days, the high temperature here will be in the 30s. Then the long, long winter begins.
This year, however, I get to experience an abbreviated Pennsylvania winter. After the first of the year, I will be residing in Charleston, SC. Jeez, I can't believe I just wrote that. Just eight months ago, I had never set foot in Charleston. Early this past April we went there on vacation. By the end of our fairly brief visit, I knew that this was where I wanted to live.
And so, there we are in front of our home in downtown Charleston. Contractors all over the city are dancing with joy. Just look at the smiles on the faces of those suckers. At least the toilets flush (for now).
Now there are two months of packing and planning ahead of us. What to take. What needs to be left behind for renters.
We will be meeting lots of new people: contractors, painters, electricians, plumbers.
I can't wait.
We're almost there.
