    Checking in.......

    I miss you guys!!!! Sorry it's been so long, I have been soooo busy with life. It's funny, 2 years ago I was a single guy living by myself in a 1 bedroom apartment work was fairly slow and steady....very consistent. Just worried about paying rent and car, come and go as I please, a niiiiiice easy life

    2 years later I have been slammed very regularly at work with unhappy customers due to economy, rate increases, many complaints and not such a fun career lately. I am moving in with my girlfriend and her 2 kids, I had been going nuts trying to get a mortgage with a circumstance related to the type of loan we were looking to do that was making it havoc to get a loan due to government guidelines since all the problems (just having good credit is no longer enough these days)....good news is, we got it and closed last Thursday....small banks are the way to go.

    So I got back from an 8 day Caribbean Cruise on Friday, had a few party things to host for the holiday and my mother's birthday, back to work today, and am looking forward to picking up the pace of moving more stuff over this month to where I will reside in my new home August 1st.

    I wanted to pop in and say hello to my good friends over here, I will still be here infrequently until things settle down a bit, I certainly want to thank my fellow co-mods with the patience and understanding An incredible team on what I have felt and continue to feel is the best site on the web

    Hope all is well with all of you.

    Great to hear from you Doug. Thanks for checking in. Having moved offices in the past few weeks and established a new practice within the past year and a half, I completely get how you can get swamped at times. And this economy, for many of us and in many industries, remains *very* challenging to say the least.

    Hang in there and we'll hear from you when you're ready....
