Knock, Knock (Im moving!)

“Knock, Knock”

“Who’s there?”


California, who?”

“Alan you’re moving to California!

Or at least it went down some thing like that. That said I am finally moving to Los Angeles (specifically Burbank) at the very end of February(28th or 29th). I have known about the move to California for about a week now and I have sat down to write this about 50 times, its hard saying good bye. So many of you mean a lot to me and I am not quite sure how to express that other than to say, I love you. I love you and I will miss all of you, I am not the greatest at keeping in touch. If any one has moved from me they know that. I am sorry to the ones I have not kept in touch with. Feel free to contact me any time I would love to tell you how I am doing. I want to do a party before I leave I am not sure how to work that out so if you have ideas let me know. God is doing a lot of things right now in my life and I need a lot of prayer, every thing from no job to trying, to keep a brand new relationship going and healthy, to a safe ride out there.
