Okay kids, time out. Raising kids and having to work outside the home are tough.

Remember that we're all friends here.

Welcome back, PF! When is the closing? Do you love your new job? Do they treat you right? How is Shrek holding up? XOXOX

Hi Z! Work very good, loving it. Shrek doing well, more active at this point. Closing around July 30th.

I will be back sporadically again. Unless I can swing a WiFi hot spot in the neighborhood, I will only be posting from Mom's house for the next month. Don't see any sense in signing up for 1 month's worth of Internet. We also will be without a TV for the month. Wish I knew which box my portable DVD player is in...

on edit: Duh!!! I can play movies on the laptop. Need more coffee.

Hi, chaps. Still out of home internet connections. Hope to be sorted next week. Have had to manage with the PC in the library but only allowed i hour a day so trying to fit everything in is a bit of a pain in the neck.

Hope you are all well and feeling chipper. How did the move go PF? I gather from your post above that you are still staying at your mum's.

Good to "see" you MC.

Good luck getting the home internet sorted.

Gee MC, we haven't heard from PF in a while. The house they thought they were getting fell through. So they found a "rent to buy" house just down the street from the first house. There was a family living in it and they have to move out so PF and Shrek can do the closing. Just another glick in the works. She is working her regular job and still trying to get other things done.

Hi MC! I was just thinking of you last night, wondering if you had fallen off the face of the earth. And, now, here you are! It will be good to see you back here on a regular basis soon, since your stories of Tetley and your new kitty, who's name has slipped my mind... are very entertaining.

According to PF, they were supposed to move into their house on July 15th. Sure hope everything went smoothly for them. She's been gone from DC a long time. It will be nice to see her back here posting regularly. Besides, none of up have picked up the slack on the "recalls" thread. I sure hope we've all been safe in her absence!

I was laying down trying to get my tummy to settle down and then jump in the shower. I just couldn't get the thoughts of PF out of my mind. You must have been reading my mind. I jumped up to post just about the same thing. I have been missing her something fierce this past week. Then tonight I saw the ad for the musical at a local theater for Shrek. That just made me feel worse. If they were able to move in this week, hopefully we will hear from her by the end of next week at the latest. Have to give her time to get her Internet connection at least. Shrek can unpack while she is on line and catching up. I hope he is doing well also.
