Big Big News!!!
You would think that would be enough busyness and chaos to keep us running around like crazy people...but no.

This means a lot of scrambling around to get moved, working in new job, and paperwork completed and submitted so he can be brought to Louisiana versus Alabama where he is currently approved to come. This also means informing a new employer that I really really would like at least 6 weeks off, even though I just started. I
