oh yeah...

Goof
this man survived the lay-offs and is getting things in order for the new form of the job.
sassy
this woman is relieved since she has felt her baby child no.2 fluttering around inside all week and she'd like to have insurance to pay for his or her birth.
Up close & personal
this toddler didnt even know that anything was wrong and that's a good thing. he is our joy and delight through good times and bad.

we are happy to move forward, even if the new job is going to be tougher. we are also praying and hoping good things for all our friends who didnt get asked to stay on. this is a hard time for many, but we know that only good things are ahead for everyone.

i'm so glad for you guys, and also a little nervous in the "i only want to be supportive" sort of way for the challenge of thomas's sort of new job. it must be hard to feel the happiness in being safe while knowing others you care about didn't meet the same fate. good luck to all.

I for one am disappointed. Yeah you heard me right. I was hoping this was the springboard to move to Utah and then we could hang out everyday! Oh well, congrats anyway.

Glad to hear things are okay. Hang in there on the licensing hours, it's a long road, but you'll get there. It is always a relief to know that you have money to pay the bills! Yippeee for working hard!
