My wife quit her job yesterday. [More:]This led to this which led to this, this, and this.

Then my wife got involved. This led to this, this, and this, which brings us to yesterday, when she turned in her resignation.

She's been talking to accountants and office-space leasers and bar owners and wedding planners and health-insurance folks and all that, got the bills paid off and savings accumulated. Gave her day job a month's notice, and they're all happy for her, so there's a good reference, if she needs to back track.

Thanks for the support, all.
No, no. Thank YOU for your help.

AND I get to have a wife who works only one job--everything won't have to be confined to nights and weekends, no more early-morning trips to the court house.

So very proud of her.

Oh, here's another: A meetup led to my being friends with exogenous, at whose house I jammed with cortex. exogenous introduced me to piedrasyluz, who, as it turns out, I'd met a week earlier when I ordained him and he gave me a bottle of absinthe. At a project meeting, I met the owner of a bar mentioned as a possible place for holding weddings. Said owner has now given my wife a tour of his places, and has offered their unlimited use. Pays to network, I guess.

Yay! The owners of Little Miss Whiskeys/Jimmy Valentines are friends-of-a-friend and seem like really good folks.

Hope things work out...Mr Arkham and I want to renew our vows in 2015. :)
