  14. Super idea, Joylene! Have a Kindle on order (as the Nook didn't make it; so back to Kindle). I'd missed so many posts, I thought your house had sold. Truly sorry, girl! But, you're right: You shouldn't give it away. From the photos you've posted, you've got an amazing place. We got lucky when that hot real estate market opened up, which is why we waited another year. (We'd hoped to move last year but didn't want to give it away either.) The good news is, you're in position for that hot window. It will come!!! But, Lord, I don't want to move again! Throwing lots of positive vibes into NC but don't know . . . don't know . . . things have to shake out a bit more. It's just different here, hard to explain.

    Thanks for you comment on my last post. Think I had the crud you had as my symptoms mirrored your posts. (Oh, "crud" is slang for a nasty bug going around.)
