Well, Diana, I’m just glad it was you and not me!;-) Seriously, how in the world can they actually CHARGE you for electricity when you were NOT there, and especially when the bills had been being paid—-and the company had not notified you about the jump in usage!!! Sounds like something is wrong with their meters, at the very least.

Glad you got home ok and are filling well enough to let us know you are back “on duty". (I feel safer when you are working for us.)

Love you, and can hardly wait until you are back home to stay!!!

Congratulations on tying the knot, and my sympathies for being tied in knots ever since then.

If your electricity usage seemed to continue when when it was shut off, my guess is somebody else got added onto your account by mistake. You may be able to ask the power company for the meter readings that were used to compute your bill. If they don’t add up to what you were charged for (or if you get two sets of readings) you’ll have a better idea of what happened.

Your landlord is indeed awesome. I hope you leave a heck of a tip when you move out.

HI Diana,

I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to meet you and Mich in person. You are both even more wonderful in the flesh than in print, and that’s going some because you are both stunningly good writers.

We are honoured beyond words to have been able to attend your wedding. To see such love, admiration and devotion in both of you as you said your vows and to watch the way you treasure each other, even after 10 years together, heartens all of us in long-term relationships. This was no marriage in the heat of brief infatuation; you both know who you are and who you are getting.

You are also setting a good example. Having our teenaged son see your committed love is an antidote to the images promulgated by all sorts of media that confuse fleeting infatuation with love.

today our lad turned 16. He passed his learner’s test this morning so we gave him an engraved keychain for his gift. (It fit the budget and we’ll always know which key is his….until he loses it.) LIfe moves on in wondrous ways.

Be well and here’s to the gift of friends, new and old.

Aren’t you sweet! Nobody’s ever called me charming before!

I’m so sorry that you had such Murphy’s Law sort of travel and travail. I think you handled it with far more grace than I would have managed. Reading about it is so much better than living through it.

Most of all I’m glad you made it back in one piece.
