I love that you did this!

LOL @ 4 left feet. I can relate, but you two really need to do a little dancing together! When will you be back in the States? Maybe the four of us can go to one of the WAH dances?

I can really relate to crossing the age barrier (10 years for us) and becoming a step mother to a teen before age 30.

You guys are lucky that you're both fixers. We've spent so much $$$ over the years because we're not able to fix a lot on our own.
