11 hours of driving a large truck and towing the car with Shrek and two cats, I'm not looking forward to it. Might have my Brother fly up and help me do the driving. Shrek no longer drives.

Don't forget to list the folks at DC as character references, where else can you find so many characters in one spot!
That's a good idea! Thanks Aunt Bea!

I completely understand. That is why I loved doing Temp Work. If I didn't like a job, all I had to do was tell my agency and they would find me a new one. What the companies never knew is that we were also asked to critique the companies we were sent to work for. Get enough bad reviews, and the agency would not make a concerted effort to fill their requests too quickly. Eventually, the company would look elsewhere. I only asked once to be removed from an assignment. I was able to do a wide variety of work over the years. And during down time, I was able to collect unemployment.

Best of luck to both of you.

Sounds like it's pretty much a done deal, princess! Take care.

How very nice, Cheryl! Enjoy your time and make sure we get to see pics of your grandkids' smiling faces.
Thanks, CG, we had a great time! I'll put a couple of pics in the random photo thread.

I'm hoping I can nab a job at one of the Nursing Facilities within a 50 mile radius. I have 8 weeks of vacation coming, so I can have some down time if I need it.

Good luck, PF!

I shudder at the idea of moving again. I got moved all over the planet for nearly 26 years in the Army! Bleah!

Our move into this home is definitely the last. No steps, flat yards, small house that is easy on maintenance and just purrfect.

Wyoming is a beautiful state! I'm sorry you have issues at your current job. Some managers can make life absolutely miserable for employees. I've helped to get rid of some of those dingbats both in the military and in civilian life.

Keep us posted!

I'm planning our veggie garden. They're all in starter pots in the garage and soon they'll be planted outside! Yay spring!

Hubby had his scan last Tuesday and he's still all clear. This is a miracle! Very few people survive pancreatic cancer. He lost a lot of weight during his illness and it's so much fun to be able to cook anything and everything with no dietary restrictions. He's gaining weight, exercising and he's been back to work for a while now. He's back to normal and this is just wonderful!

Funny how the simplest things seem like miracles now. We're all so grateful.

I hope all of you are well and happy.

CCL, that is great news about your hubby's scan! So happy for you both that you were blessed with this gift of more life. Enjoy every moment, and have fun cooking.

For hubby. And one for you.

I can feel your relief as I have been there twice. My daughter's last MRI was clean. Oddly enough both my daughter and her husband. They have so many new drugs today for cancer. If you remember my daughter was not in the 5% of those the type of survive brain cancer that she was afflicted. But a bunch of new drugs came out at the just the right time and she has beat the odds. At least for now. She will have to go for MRIs for the rest of her life. Right now it is every three months. Next year it will be every six months, then every nine months for the rest of her life. I think my favorite word for the rest of my life will be "remission."
