I moved

I finally did it, I can hardly believe I could go through with my 'June 30th will not meet me in Nigeria' deadline!!!

Its taken me like 5 years to do this and although I am terribly frightened, I am glad I finally did it. I am staying with my girl Spice and her husband C. They have two children Jewel and N, N is like 2 months old and just eats and sleeps (at odd hours!) The weather is very like Lagos, minus the smells, dirt, etc; its was 36 degrees yesterday when I arrived.

I am anxiously scanning my mail box for word from Smith, which will determine if I am staying in Dallas or if I will once again be 'relocating' to Maryland. For now though I am just going to enjoy my 'vacation'.
