Ok. The new bearings for the Honda are installed and it's like having a new car!
I also gave Dan my two week notice today and he was not only ok with it, he's also rooting for me… He said it was obvious I was miserable here with everyone I know being out west, heck, my whole life being out west.
We worked out the beginnings of a deal where I will continue to do graphic art for him from remote and he'll continue to pay me a small sum to make sure my transition is as smooth as possible. Now, there's nothing definite here, but it's a big help to know that he's not upset about me bailing.
So, over the next two weeks I'll be busy getting everything here set up to be worked on from there and finishing up as much as I can on the projects that are pending.
