Whazzat? You thought I gave up blogging? Nope, though this layoff was mostly intentional, albeit somewhat comically protracted. You see, I was prepared to do some a few wrap-up thoughts as soon as we officially finished the move-- when the final papers were shuffled, the bank account fully drained and closed and so forth. Honestly, I assumed it would only be a couple weeks after the last entry. Well, a couple of weeks turned into a couple of months which turned into a couple of seasons. The main culprit was waiting on a single sheet of paper from the bank regarding our measly 2011 interest. The first request to get this mailed out was January 13. I received it today-- almost 6 months and innumerable emails later, and the only reason we have it now was that some bank rules were broken just to shut me up and make me go the hell away. Hey, whatever it takes.
So really, this whole move from start to finish took exactly 11 months to perform-- in other words, one-third of the actual time we spent IN Germany.
More thoughts soon, and then the transition into a Stateside blog. But for now, I'm going to savor my small victory. It's good to finally be home.
