All good things must come to an end

This is the last post that will be done on this site.

Amanda and I have seperated. Instead of moving to California, she decided to move to Utah instead and start a new life there.

We are currently in the process of cutting our financial ties to each other and starting the divorce paperwork.

I'm sure many of you out there have questions of why, but this is not the forum for giving out such details. The nitty-gritty is that she doesn't have romantic feelings for me anymore, and when you don't have that emotional connection the relationship isn't worth anything.

She seems very happy with her decision. We've mulled over it many times in long conversations both face-to-face and over the phone. Things just aren't as they should be and didn't end like they should've.

As I wrote, this is the last posting for the site. Amanda did all the design and I wouldn't feel comfortable in using the site in it's current form. Be that as it may, I don't plan on removing this site or the past postings we've made. The gallery will remain and the stories that go with them should remain as well. This is my plan for the short term.

I'm unplugging my connection to the outside world today. I will not have internet access again until I am out in California in our new home!

Wish me luck :)

Oh man... and I thought I was busy before. I was given two week notice on the move date, and since then everything has been non-stop. Now I'm not complaining too much, because mostly it's friends calling and wanting to take me out one last time before I leave. But there's so much to do and so little time left, and on top of that I'm in the middle of a really good book that is so hard to resist.

Hmmm.... read or clean out a closet? Read or do another load of laundry? Read or clean out my fridge? And with going out to lunch, out to dinner, out to drinks, etc. with so many people, there's really no choice. When I'm at home I just can't sit and read!

I tell myself I'll have plenty of time to read out in California at first. We won't have our furniture or any of our stuff (other than what is packed in the van) for a couple weeks, so I'll be in a big empty house all day while Mike is at class. Plenty of time for internet and reading then!

So yeah... you probably won't hear much at all from me at least for the next week. The packers are coming Monday; the movers come Tuesday. I'll be leaving either Tuesday or Wednesday depending on how early everything gets loaded. It's about a 30 hour drive, and I'm REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT! Come on! I've never been on a solo road trip before, and it's going to be such a rush. The independence and the control!

Look out, California... Here I come!
