How are things going? I accidentally deleted your last note with your phone #.Are you settling down yet? I'm on my way. Passed one exam and have one lett. Then I can get a job and a home. I fell in love with a house in Woodlawn, but think it's off the beaten path a bit. Am hoping to be in the NE, pref. Beaumont Village, Alberta, near shops and parks. Give me an update.
Are you officially back from Miami? I accidentally erased your phone #; Mine is 408-528-4413. I found a house i absotely love in the Woodlawn area. Still don't know much about the neighborhood, but the house and those around it are in good shape. It's by Condordia Univ. if that means anything to you. My exams (for massage)are coming up in the next few weeks and that pressure is freaking me out a bit. I must pass, so I can get a job, then a loan for my house. UGH. I want it all NOW. Miss my daughters and pets, but am hanging in there. How bout you?
