well... i haven't the slightest idea how to explain everything that has happened over the last however long it's been. It's been as crazy as i've ever known it to be. so crazy that i can't even capitalize the appropriate letters. anyway.. a lot has happened, we're moving on and almost know where we're going to live, we're about to buy our plane tickets and we almost have our visas. so, even though we're no where for sure, we're a lot closer to being somewhere for sure and that feels good!
