and I am *ready*. The van is packed; the gate is fixed (the recent deluge made my driveway rise up 1/4"...the gate was dragging. No more!); the kids and animals are fed; the stud-muffin has been put back in the pasture.....we're good to go.
I took a lot of notes today...with still more to research. I'm learning a lot - which is the whole point.
