    You've got this! I have total faith in you. And you've done something most of us would have had a harder time recognizing, let alone repairing, so hold that head up and head for the Magnolia State!!

    Definitely GO and ENJOY! Look at it this way, this trip should either make it or break it for later years.

    Good luck!

    Africa - near the equator

    Ah, that's not too bad surely? At least if you try, that's all you can do. Not knowing how things will work out may be as much of an issue as anything else.

    Carpe diem, I say!

    Who knows, you might actually enjoy yourself and if nothing else, you will have taken one for the team for your daughter :)

    Seems our collective wisdom has dealt with your dithering - get packing (maybe include a hip flask though :))

    Yes, actually they are the ones that took care of them for me last summer while I was in SC. And they are always willing to help. Of course, I gained a lot more birds over the winter than they had seen, but ya know how that goes.. [​IMG]

    And yes, you mean you never knew that brown birds turn into blue ones, and lavender birds turn into black and gold ones?? [​IMG]
