Ooooh, I can't wait to hear how that trip goes with the cute boy! Haha. I know it's work, but pretty never hurts!

We hired my ...mentee? today! $130k/year...maybe a little more than I wanted to pay, but the owner is thrilled, so it's great for her. Thirty-five and a CFO for a $100+ mil company!

Carol, having a mentor like you is priceless. That's one lucky woman!!!

I hope your trip is fantastic and I can't wait to hear about it.

I'm headed to Boston tomorrow......for a few days and it's for work. But I'm excited to get away from the every day grind. Eric and I are going together and we have some fun planned for tomorrow. I can't wait!!!!

DERMALIE - Welcome! This is a great group! I've been retired for eight months now. We are busy traveling the world. We typically go for warm water and pretty fish - haha. This time we're going to South America, leaving Monday and won't be back until April 8th!

Heather!!! I would buy as many pants in that brand as you can! Heck yes, make yourself feel great!

You know Jen, Heather is probably spot on...When it rains here a vast number of people don't even have umbrellas, and it's never that cold that you need to even layer other than a shirt and a rain jacket...or no jacket, typically, in my case lol.

Monday we leave! It's been such a hectic week because my friend's "little" start-up that I'm helping with has gone from an estimated $32 million to now projections of over a hundred mil! I'm interviewing a CFO/Controller tomorrow with the owner. It will be a relief to get this off of my desk! The gal we're interviewing is someone I trained from scratch up to a staff accountant, then she went to work for a CPA firm, I hired her for another company as assistant controller, trained her up for that, then she went with my old partner to set up a new company and be controller...so I so excited to get her back! I said to her, "Who wouldn't want to work with Tim and he is 100% owner and the company will likely hit a hundred million this year..." She decided I was right. Yay!

I worked for about thirty hours last week! How is that retirement? ...on the other hand, another $3k in the travel fund doesn't hurt, right?

Heather that's awesome!

We've been sidelined by a head cold but it seems to be passing quickly. But between the more frequent naps, RJ has become a walking fool! He's doing laps around and around the living/dining room holding various toys in his hands, it's super cute!

Yesterday I went to buy new slacks for a trip I'm taking next week. I tried on the 8. I had the fitting room woman look at me and tell me if they fit. I said, maybe I should get the 10 at the same time she said, maybe you should get the 6. The 6. I was stunned. She said, they are too baggy on you. She got the 6. It fit!!!!! Granted, they seem to be cut a bit big because the other pants I got were a 10, but I'm ignoring that and doing a happy dance for my size 6 pants!!!!!!

Carol, we stayed in yesterday since it was just so steady and cold of a rain, but we got out a bit today to the conservatory at Longwood gardens :)

I'm glad to have you all to chat with, especially since becoming a sahm it's nice to have people to check in with even if it's only virtually!

Hey, hey! It's so good to "see" you! Spark has made it difficult for anyone new to find teams anymore, but we're still holding on because we like the strong women vide we have here!

Definitely take him out in the rain! AND, bring your camera! Some of my favorite pictures of the kids when they were little was in the rain and playing with the hose!

Ahh, month-end! We spend so much time on it, it seems like it should have a bigger name! I've been helping my sister with their business and year-end taxes. It looks like she'll get it finished today! That will be the fastest time ever.

I got money today for our trip starting this coming Monday!!! It's finally here!

Hi guys

We had a rough weekend for various reasons... Hoping this week is better! Off to a rainy start though, no forest school for us this morning. Might bundle up and go out in the backyard even with the rain after nap

Good Morning!!! Wow, the commute was long today. But getting in the office and hitting the ground running for month end close.

I worked on client stuff this weekend, and I didn't work out at all. I'm maintaining the weight, which is good, but not losing. Plateau in February, it's OK. I'll break through it soon!!

Have a great day everyone!!
