I wish I was purrrrfect....

Ah, just wondering if I made the right decision. Things aren't quite as I expected here in Libya. This is always the risk when things like this happen quickly. I might settle down a bit soon, hopefully, and get used to it. I may have to adjust and tweak some plans and delay other bits and bobs...see problems as challenges and all that positive-thinking crap...
