Congrats!!! I sort of got fired (a contract ended) after 30 fucking years at my work. I was planning on retiring anyway, but it pissed me off that
after all that time, yea I was the only dinosaur left. Oh well, it ended up happy cuz they gave me all sorts of bucks I wasn't planning on for
leaving without giving them any flack ..... :) Happy day for me ...

So tomorrow I leave for my honeymoon on the beach :) and in a week when we come home we see the Ob/Gyn to discuss whether or not it's possible for me to get pregnant. I love my stepson more than anything but I have always dreamed of having more children. Biologically may not be possible with my health problems...so cross your fingers for me everyone! I am super happy and super nervous. Mostly happy though!

Have an amazing trip, Jax Dee! :D

ETA: I'm thinking good thoughts about the other business too, but I'm opinionated about not having to think about both at the same time. :wink:

How can any beautiful Spring day not make you happy! 70F, blue sky, slight breeze. I have a chicken in the4 oven, cooking it breast side down with taters, carrots,onions, and salt and pepper. I also squirt some lemon juice over everything, and wrapped it all up in tinfoil! Cooking it low and sloooow! *boing! boing!boing!*
