Phil grew like a wild man this winter and has several tendrils at least 6 feet long. Fred has tons of new leaves and Ruby shot up like a rocket. Lily is still demure but filling out.

There are others too many to mention so I will be at this most of the afternoon but I can't think of a better way to spend a beautiful day.
I understand completely. My sister is now naming clouds that the other angels are sitting on playing their harps.

I've been doing something I have never done before: writing a Resume. Now that I have one, no more excuses for not looking for a new job.

Surprised at this...! Best wishes to you, Princess - for whatever reason you're leaving, I hope you find what you're looking for.

Leadership changes and the new guy in the office is making my life miserable. I've stuck the change out for almost 4 months and it's not getting better. So far I got the resume done and have sent it out to several places much closer to family. May be changing our location to Wyoming in the near future. Got an Ogre who is homesick, too! If I'm going to make a change, may as well be a big one.

That's a tough decision to make, PF. Here's hoping it provides new and great opportunities.

Best excuse in the world to move, IMO. Too bad all spouses can't think like that. I hope you land a wonderful job, find a great place to live, and that you and your Shrek get moved quickly.

Good luck PF!

Don't forget to list the folks at DC as character references, where else can you find so many characters in one spot!
