Also, since last time, I entered the world of the gainfully employed. I work at a United Methodist Mission as a secretary and jack of all trades. I've found a talent for solving computer problems that I didn't know I had, and I've enjoyed working on my employer's website. I'm taking a self-paced home study course in website development after I recover from my surgery, and I'm pretty excited about that. You could look at my picture in the "who am I talking to" thread. I've lost about twenty pounds since the last photo was taken, and I'm pretty excited about that, too.
This was neat -- and I've gone on long enough.
Love you guys,
