Mainly, this is to express how very, very grateful I am to everyone who's sent me emails and LJ comments in the last few days. I really appreciate you, and I can't really sit down and write to everyone individually until I get online at home. I'm realizing that that might take weeks, probably a minimum of two weeks. So in the meantime, thank you all for reminding me that I'm not in fact the only person in the world. It's helping a lot, more than I could explain even if I had plenty of time to write about it at great length.
Today I bought a kettle, yay me. And tried to get some sort of order in my ideas about the project I'm starting on tomorrow. It's amazing how hard it is to think without a pencil and paper or a computer in front of me!
I don't know if work starting will mean less online time or more, really. But it will mean less time staring at the clock and waiting for the day to end. And the possibility of hot meals, which I'm definitely looking forward to.
Thanks for being there, friends list. You're making all the difference, even if I'm not in a position to reply individually.
