Thanks

I owe thanks to so many people, I'm not sure where to begin. Well, I guess I should begin at the beginning, right?

Thanks to the wonderful FarmFamily in Colorado, and all the attendees at Blogorado in early November, who showed me what it's like to spend time with true, like-minded friends.

Thanks to Gay_Cynic, who mercilessly and relentlessly pummeled me with logic on our drive back to Las Vegas from Colorado. He made me realize that moving to Texas was not just feasible, but NECESSARY.

Thanks to my miserable, moody jerk-of-a-roommate in Las Vegas, who made moving out that much more attractive.

Thanks to all my friends and colleagues in Las Vegas, who didn't say I was crazy, but rather encouraged me to follow my dream and get the hell out of Sin City.

Thanks to my daughter Silver, who after a brief moment of fury at my decision, backed me up 100% and helped me move.

The most thanks go to my anonymous Knight in Shining Armor, who oh, so generously accompanied us on our cross-country trek, while putting up with driving the beast of a rental truck, dealing with my traumatized and occasionally ill-mannered pups, and the sniping that's common between mothers and their know-it-all teenage offspring.

Thank you, all you wonderful people!!!
