  1. Good one, Jane! Retirement soon... yippee!

  2. happy for you! (but sooo jealous!!!) I've read through your other posts but hard to post except on this particular computer for some crazy reason - it goes bonkers at work as soon as I click on 'comment'... I hope you stick with you PEI dream if that was truly your dream. I had a bad experience with a guy I thought was committed but truly wasn't - I was one in a long string who happened to have funding for the rest of his string..sigh... but anyways! I had to do some sorting as to what I want(ed) - this townhome was bought expecting to hold a family but alas that didn't happen but I do still like the place and am just now after 14 yrs - yes 14! - trying to get it the way I want so I can actually LIVE in It instead of showing up from work to sleep and maybe eat!
    anyways looking forward to following your happy day!

  3. Crossing my fingers #27 goes well and you have a self supporting daughter soon who can move OUT! lol

    And good luck with that insidious wall border....hate. it!
