Congratulations, Jean!!! Well, October has passed and I've only gotten busier! We'll have to see about after the first of the new year? Sorry. My business really picks up at this time of year, and then homeschooling 3 kids, and church activities, and weddings, and family. Someday I will be able slow down to enjoy life a little more. :)
