That was some good stuff, because it worked (at least for now). I also have to get a special brace made up for it that shifts the weight from the bad side of my knee, to the good side of it. So, I asked him, "what happens when that side wears out?" "When you get older, you'll most likely need a knee replacement! Oh by the way, "Welcome to middle age!"

I guess that was his bedside humor.....
Glad it helped!! I have not had one, but I hear they can do wonders.

Hope you continue to feel great!!

By all means speak with the other brokers, then go with your gut. Whatever happens, you have that offer in your bag!
Thank you, MerryCarey!

I am going to do some phone interviews tomorrow, think over things this weekend, and try & make a decision by early next week.

Either way, things are going to happen pretty fast. Yikes! Good yikes!!

I also plan on speaking with a few other brokers, but I have a feeling I'll go with the one I met today. They are a great company, and have a lot of incentives. And a wonderful training & mentoring program!!

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts today!!

Off to make dinner, I am famished!

Hope you're all having a great evening so far!

Good evening, everyone! Just sitting down and reading a few posts, then I plan on trying to take a nap, since I head back to work tonight.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening and I will talk you all tomorrow. God Bless!

The more you talk about the foods you like and dislike, the more you are starting to remind me of my brother in law. (Don't worry, he is a really nice guy also.)

Good evening, MMC!

I just made my very first batch of sugar cookies! They were the kind you do not have to chill which was great. The recipe was on the cardboard surround of the brand new Wilton Christmas cookie pan I found at Goodwill the other day. I ate a couple so now I have to go for a walk. When I get back, I am going to watch a Christmas movie! Earlier I listened to some Christmas CDs: Michael Buble, The Vince Guraldi Trio's, and the compilation that has Baby, Please Come Home, Darlene Love's version of course!

Merry Christmas in July!!!
