In the end, I decided it was best to return to the States in early April before the teeth became unbearable and spend the summer at home working, attacking my teeth in a positive fashion, and hopefully figuring out what to do long-term. There was a brief trip to Michigan to help Brian & Joey relocate to Arizona, and a week at Yellowstone, but other than that...a whole lotta baseball-infused domestication. And, it was good. Two or three times I began the now-familiar process of preparing to temporarily set off for parts unknown, but never did.
Finally, a word on the 300+ posts from the other blog. I still have them, and they will slowly reappear as I continue my editing process. By "editing" I mean for clarity and brevity, not "scrubbing", although I've considered fictionalizing some names in the interest of their privacy. I doubt I will.
