I'm glad that's off your mind and you can enjoy your summer. And I know you'll be happy so close to your family.

That sounds like great news! I'd have a hard time leaving my home too. I'm happy for you and hope that you have a wonderful summer in your mountain retreat!


I'm so glad you found a solution that allows you to stay right where you are. It sounds like Paul's department really wants to keep him - that's wonderful!

If you love the mountains, do not move to Florida. Don't even think about it. It is flat and hot and you would be miserable. Really. Especially without your family near. Your child is so fair skinned, do not subject her to the hot Florida sun. The sun really is more intense down there. I lived there for over 10 years and yes, there are some nice things, but those things are nice on a VISIT. If you're established in Carolina, stay there.
