There may be nice parts of Indiana, but I've never been to them.  So IL is a step up, I suspect.  Did your mom pass away?  You mentioned court documents and the house so I was wondering if something sad had happened.

I'm glad you are happy with the move and hope you can continue to stay safe.

Did your mom pass away?

I do not believe so as, in a message she sent me last night, she mentions herself, her mother and her children all having to move.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

I thought she mentioned that her stepfather had cancer, so maybe it was related to that.  I hope she ends up in a better place.  Rural IL can be beautiful.  There are lots of charming small towns, and Chicago is pretty entertaining, although it's gotten more expensive in recent years.

Mom's alright Six.  She just didnt make a will out with dad, they didnt know how estates work, thinking everything would go to mom automatically, no.  It's a nightmare now, and my stepsister, my stepdads stepdaughter, has now assumed a large amount of the estate as a descendant. We'll be glad when its sold and the madam has half the money, as long as we dont have to see her again and shes the one that lives with herself.
Besides, it's like you said, there are no good places here, I'll be glad to leave.  I wish I could have the same enthusiasm about illinois as you do six, all I remember are bars and bricks. I'll miss the trees, the valleys and hills.
I can hang though, as I've said before, just damn lonely as a parent alone, uggh, now I sound like a bad facebook post, goodstuff I dont partake but of specific fb shite.
I hope you all are feelin good.

Well, that sucks.  I'm sorry to hear of the problems that the estate laws have imposed on you.  My time in IL was spent either in college, doing research, or teaching, so I was in good places while there.  I didn't have to support small children, so I can totally get why it's less appealing.  Where are you ending up there?  In the south?  I'd expect certain parts are a little less charming.

I have a friend who lives near Peoria, not exactly the garden spot of America, but the surrounding countryside is pretty, although there's sure a lot of cornfields.

Cornfields indeed, but I'm used to that. 
I never went to the bars in Wilmington, I just remember there is a bar on every corner, filled with less than undesirables.
I'll be in Marsailles, near Ottowa, it is slightly secluded and I'll only be there till Spring, is the hope.  Then its either back down here with legs to stand on or up to Wisconsin with my mother. Gordon, to be specific there. 
Alls well that ends well, and I've had a time dealing with this house since my father died and my mother hasn't wanted to be here.  My children are now 11 and 13 : )  they grow up so fast, I barely seen it happen, but I remember one day wondering where those babies went :P <3 I'm so proud of them. 
I hope this find you well Six.
Goodluck everyone, another day.

I've been through Ottawa a thousand years ago, but not much lately.  There are some charming little towns in IL, but I don't know that I'd be happy living there.  I also lived in WI for a while, Madison, but have been around various parts of the state.  Still, Gordon is pretty far up there.  Maybe not so far from MN?  I expect it gets pretty cold there in the winter.

I know what you mean about kids growing up quickly.  It still amazes me how the children of my college friends are now in college themselves.  It makes me feel old.  I hope you find a place where the kids can find a good school system and you can find steady, decent employment so you can be happy and live a stable life.  I wish I could write something more entertaining but I've been traveling so am sleep deprived and sort of stupid.  You take good care.  I'll check in again in a few days.

I need like a dental suction attachment for my shop vac, I need to clean between ram sticks, but the reviews on the really small handheld vacs seem to be a universal "They're poo".

I don't know if I've lost the ability to websearch, but attempting to look for such things on frys returns only roombas and screen cleaning cloths.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.
