I did it!
I took that leap of Faith and am now a yearly member! It was a tiny bit spooky-jumping from smaller monthly to one big swoop-but I reminded myself that this bigger chunk was only once now, and I wouldn't have to worry about it for another 12. That was a great feeling! So there went some stress and I'm always one to decrease the stressors in my life.
I'll be spending the next 3 days letting folks know about this opportunity while it lasts, its's a time and offer that if any way you can make it, by all means do. I'm going to get to work on my project with *singing* "eyes wide open, to the possibilities..." (Bridge to Terebithia)
