In the Event of My Disappearance...

Well, the moving issue has again reared its ugly head. Though, with a little time and distance, I've made some peace with it. I think it might actually be okay were it to happen.Though let's, just for shits and giggles, dive on into the depths of my irrationality about all this...I've sat straight up in bed, in a cold sweat, thinking about these things.
