It’s officially happened. Traffic on this site has returned to the levels I once enjoyed on my old blog, before it was murdered. It’s six PM where I am, and already 2,100 people have visited today. That will likely rise to 2,500 or even 3,000, by the day’s end.
Needless to say, I’m both ecstatic and humbled. It’s been a long climb back from my digital death, and I thank all of you who’ve been so loyal and supportive these past six months. In honor of this occasion, I’ll search my backlog of stories and select one as a new “free fiction” offering from Martin. How’s that?
It’s been a long, but productive day for me and my boyfriend. We reached the storage unit building around ten AM. The owner had four guys ready to assist us in removing all the materials form my unit and loading them onto a huge transfer truck. The six of us worked like demons, loading up boxes of file folders, notebook, financial records, and trial exhibits from the numerous trials I participated in during my 25 years of practicing law. We filled the entire truck.
After taking a lunch break, my boyfriend and I drove the truck to the County incinerator, where we unloaded everything into an area where a guy with a bulldozer scraped it into piles bound for burning. It was hot, sweaty work. My back muscles are aching a bit tonight. We returned to the truck to the storage unit, then drove home. I can’t believe this entire task is completed, but it is.
No more storage unit rent for Martin.
My boyfriend’s a sports nut. Tonight, we’ll visit a restaurant, here on the island, to have our dinner and watch both hockey and NBA basketball. The restaurant’s at a marina, with nice water views and reasonable drink prices. We’ll have fun for certain. And after the day we’ve had, we deserve it.
Again, thanks to everyone who’s made this such a big day on my website. Enjoy your Saturday night, wherever you might be.
