Singapore is stealing my friend

I just found out today that one of my best friends is up and moving to Singapore! 

And it has rendered me speechless.

She is an almost empty nest-er like me, and while I've spent a lot of time pondering life without children around the house 24 x 7, the thought never occurred, "Hey, I think I'll MOVE TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY!!"

First off, I still want to help put the wee ones through college then shove them out into the cold cruel world.  Then, since I'm lucky, (if you are going through a nasty divorce) or un-lucky (if you are happily married to a millionaire), to be on my own financially- I need to keep working to put chocolate on the table.

But my mind is just blown by the possibilities.

Side note: remember last month when I said I was baaaack to blogging?  I meant once a month when January and February aren't busy kicking my butt on a daily basis.
