Can I make a thread for us slackers who are just too darn busy to say Hi but every 3-4 months?!?!?! I have been so busy! Lots of life changes, good and bad. And I miss my Discuss Cooking buddies! And all the new ones, WOW, there are ssssssssoooooo many new members, AWESOME! Well, I was just checking in! Finally settled on the house I want to buy, and close on the 20th!!! yipppeee! Very happy, but SCARED TO DEATH! Taking care of a whole house all by myself!! ACK! Well, I thought I would say hidey-ho- been watching Tim the tool man too much I think, hahahahaha! Miss you all! I am going to make myself sit down and log in at least once a weak, Discuss Cooking Pledge!

Hi, Shannon. Nice to see you again. Buying a house is both exciting and scary, but you'll be glad you did it when all the anxiety is over.

Enjoy and visit when you can. We're always here.
