Thanks for stopping by my blog!! We are really excited about the changes that are in progress. DH has to go into work Mon. (his BD) because of health ins. rules. His boss is going over a couple things with him as no one has been hired yet, then take him out to lunch. DH is being sent home after lunch for the official retiring afternoon:):):D

Have a wonderful week and holiday season celebrating!!!
