Default It's official!!!!

It is now official..... I'm retired!! Today was my last day as a full time nurse. Although I love being a nurse, and am proud to be one, it was time. When I got home, my husband gave me a frog bead for my Pandora, turning me from nurse to Villager! We will be down in 2 weeks from today and will begin our new lives as frogs. Now the fun begins... Hello Buttonwood, goodbye snow.

Marybb,
I'm excited for you and Laryb! A frog bead-- too cool!

I so wish I was going to be there when you come HOME. Hugs until I get to give you both hugs in person.

Love,
P

Thank you to everyone for the kind wishes, can't wait to meet everyone. Hope we can keep our plans with pooh and phyllis. Robbie, we plan on being at the pool everyday after we finish unpacking, so we'll keep an eye out.

Wishing you many years of happiness as a frog welcome home.
Remember no one ever said on their deathbed "I wish I'd spent more time at work".
Be happy, be healthy be here.

I am so happy. Thank you for years of helping others. Now it is playtime. We are right behind you in coming to Buttonwood. We are leaving the day I get out of school June 16. What a wonderful guy to give you the frog for your Pandora. Can't wait to meet my neighbors. I will be at the pool.

Robbie see you at the pool. Would love to meet both of you

I'm so happy for you. This is the beginning of a wonderful journey, you deserve the best in this life. You have worked hard and now you can play like kids.

God bless you both, you official Froggers.

We are still waiting for our home to sell here in California and when it does we will join you in Buttonwood as Froggers too.

Enjoy
