  1. You did a great job! I can believe how organized you are… you must be a great leader at work.

    As much as I’d like to jump on board (you know me, I love traveling!) I still can’t give a reply. As you know, I started a new job last October and our schedule is set on the House of Commons and on politics for whom we work. I wait and see what 2010 will bring (hopefully, not an election!)
