Welcome to our forum.
You should be able to find a few good friends here to help you along your way. Take your time and read a lot of threads; post when you have a thought or question you'd like to share.
It sounds like you're adjusting pretty well to the new lifestyle, but everyone can use a little advice and support along the way. Keep your communication channels open, and learn all you can on this site.
Glad to have you aboard.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
