Amy, I am planning to go! I haven't attended a conference in many years - but I am very interested in attended the Lowell conference in August. It would be wonderful to "meet" in real life! :) p.s. My husband is always trying to get me to go paperless - to no avail, lol!
Praying for you and your loved ones, Mary! It sounds like a really good move, although I am sure it will be exhausting! I pray it goes smoothly for everyone. :)
Thank you very much, Shirley! You are so kind. I truly fall in love with my FCS every year around this time - I love that it works so well! :)
Helena, I am so happy to hear this news and very grateful you thought to update us. God is so good! I will continue to keep your husband (and you!) in my prayers. :)
Thank you, Kortney! Yes, the picture was taken last week - I had a few inches taken off at the hairdresser's and Little Bear wouldn't look at me at first! But all was well once I convinced him it was me. :)

Man cave post to come this summer, Penny! :)
Thank you for sharing your experience and suggestions, Karen! I will print this and file it with our washing machine paperwork. Good to keep in mind - though I have my fingers crossed it will be smooth sailing from here on out! :)
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and kind comments! Happy Spring! :)

Lol, Penny! Yes, we had a dear sweet calico named Penny. Moneypenny, formally, but Penny to all who knew and loved her. She was so pretty and loving!
Thank you very much, Lisa - you can't know how much those words meant to me! :)
