I microwaved my pants today: lessons on letting go

This story started in December after a rushed move and complete mental breakdown in a Jacksonville, Florida REI parking lot. Between all of the feels, low blood sugar, dog bites, rabies shots, sewage water in the mouth and many other misadventures, that was not the last day that ended in tears.
