Not mine. He likes to spend his time with his "best girl."

Went MIA three years ago because I decided I had been spending way too much time online in various forums and boards. Now that I've distanced myself from just about all those places I've decided to come back to one - DC. Missed you guys and the topics here. Now if I can just maintain a balance in my life between getting things done and playing here I'll let myself stick around without resorting to the drastic measure of going cold turkey again.

BTW, it's great to see so many familiar names. Like Old Home Week.

Thanks Hoot! And congratulations to you on your newly acquired edumacation! Good luck with the job hunt, although IT jobs are out there. My own DH was laid off almost 17 months ago, right after he turned 63, when his company downsized. He was in IT for 37 years. He's been looking for a job since then and sees all kinds of jobs out there. Unfortunately (for him) they are being filled by newly-minted IT experts who will work for less than the very generous salary he was getting. Like you! It's all good - She Who Does The Budget actually planned it so that he could retire at 62. Unfortunately, once he hit that age, it also hit us how much health insurance was going to cost. He pretty much worked for our coverage that last year...

Thank you!
I am no stranger to the facts of life about finding employment. I hope things will smooth out for y'all soon.

There is an honors convocation today at the school.
I am on the President's List, and the Who's Who Among American College Students, the NCCCS Academic Excellence Award and am sharing the school's Computer Technology Dept. Student of the Year award with a former co-worker from the paper mill (and one of my good friends).
I reckon I will have to break out my fancy duds!
