    I've decided to leave both PC and CS. I've decided that, after almost 5 years, I'm simply not cut out for this business. I want to thank you all for your support and friendship.

    I wish you all the best in your businesses. I will miss some of you. Others of you, not so much.


    Maybe I'll run into a few of you in Chicago some July.

    Goodbye.




    April Fools! Boy, you people are easy. LOL!

    Rae, I read the thread title under new posts and thought 'bull%$#!' you're full of it. LOL...good one though! I knew there would be lots of posts already. The only way I knew was I just woke up 1/2 hour ago and my daughter already pulled a April fool's prank...way to go Rae! :D

    Of course, that means you also found the End of the Internet?

    I actually was almost in tears and thought the poor thing I read her schedule yesterday on another post and she just lost the pig lady (sorry can't remember the exact term of endearment) no wonder she is giving it up.

    All I thought was "what the heck :eek: she can't leave us!!!"

    I should have remembered it was April fools day. DS was asking if I had any "material" he could use on his bus driver. They joke around all the time.

    Glad its only April Fools day, Rae!

    As I would say (affectionately) to my kids.

    Rae, you're a stinker!

    But really,

    1) I'm glad it was a joke

    and

    2) You did make me laugh :D

    I'm rarely serious. I'm afraid the seriousness will stick and I'll become like many of my family members.
