Difficult morning already. Up before 5 am to welcome home a very tired child who went straight to bed with mumblings of "need pizza when I wake up"
I could have gone back to bed but supermarket food delivery due at 9 am and I wanted to clean the fridge before filling it again. Then on to the difficult stuff. Contacting our opensim grid hosting company and letting go the region we have held since 2010. Then posting messages on our social media pages updating customers and followers. Then I unlisted all the marketplace store since I don't have access to Ki's account all the sales money will just sit there forever. I know for a fact he hasnt cashed out since November so there will be a lot of money in his account right now.
I have had quite a few offlines overnight from customers wishing me well, expressing their disappointment that there will be nothing more from Ki and praising the stuff they had from him. OMG he would have got such a kick from hearing the nice things people said about the content he provided. Repeat customers gave him such a buzz, knowing they liked what he did enough to come back for more.
I did have one unpleasant customer who, even after hearing the news, kicked off about the fact there was no way I could make a change to a bed for her on Ki's behalf. I couldn't be arsed arguing the point so refunded her and logged off after waiting 10 minutes for a thanks or any response at all.
In the coming days I will clear out the stores leaving just the redelivery terminal until tier runs out at the end of March then *shrugs* no idea what is next for me in SL. I met Ki at the end of my first month in SL (11 years next week). His first day in SL and I was the first person he spoke to and that was that. So I am going to be a little lost. I have a few commitments to keep with regard to a home and garden events team I am part of. My SL sisters and I are going to group together our premium land allowances and buy a plot so we can all continue to live together when I have to give up the store region.
