Re: [IP] I'm a bad girl (but really happy!)



Congratulations on strarting this wonderfully new addition to your life. I
am sure that you will love the freedom even more as time goes on.

By the way, I would have done the same thing (started it on my own)  My life
is too busy to wait for others, not to mention my rebellious side!  ;)
