I know, and of course it had to actually start feeling like October right before I leave!!! I told my recruiter we had to get this going going because I may have grown up and lived in the Midwest all of my life, but I am not that winter hardy any more!!! I detest the extremes of weather regardless of hot or cold! smile.gif

Thanks Rhonda! I enjoyed reading about the path you and your hubby took. People who know me have mixed reactions to my decision because of my college education, but I tell them my degrees are getting me nowhere and I want to do something I am interested in, not what others think I should do. I am doing the crash course thing and will be going solo in the winter, so I figure it will make me or break me! smile.gif Be safe, and hope you post here more often!
