So the story goes...

Does anyone care to know what I have been up to for the last 3.5 months or so? You clicked on the link to get you here, so I am only to assume that you're at least PARTIALLY interested in the goings-on in my world. I would give you more lead in on this, but that would take away from this meticulously documented time line I have constructed. 07/14/2009 - 9:37am Moms gets an email from her best friend about the group who had a program in place helping people get into houses.
