[Seriously, I had been working on this post all day, and tonight when I was almost done, I hit the wrong button and it all deleted. I wanted to cry. I didn't, but I wanted to. So this one may not be as lengthy... we'll see. Scandal starts in 25 minutes and I like to watch that]
On Facebook I had posted that I had some good news coming-- well here it comes!! NO, It's not baby news. I mean my baby is only 9 months old, so don't get your hopes up ;)
As of yesterday, the papers are signed and the stock options are assigned-- I am officially a business owner at TruGrit Concepts!!!
