Hi Yvonne , thanks for the reply and for filling me in on all the date of BS and gassing ( thats my biggest fear for Deidre!) I think she just neglects to tell me these things so i don't worry but I like to know whats happening good and bad. LOL I guess their growing up trying to protect mom! I understand your excitement all I do all day is talk about Deidre to all my clients and coworkers, their probably sick to death but I can care less LOL. I hope Justin feels better, Deidre was sick 2 weeks ago but she fought it off real quick luckily no pink eye yet! Thats so irritating I can really feel for Justin with that crud!!! Well I'll see you at the meet and greet for sure I'm making my husband and I T-shirts with her pic, ship and div # so it will be easier to spot me LOL. Take care and fingers cross for this Monday, I hope they do well!. Debbie
