Not giving up because she is just so NICE.
I suppose at some point I'll have to give up, but still. :-)

I know Jessica is CRAZY BUSY, and I feel bad for nudging, but I'd love a status update. If not, I totally understand, and I'm not planning to nudge again. I know historically she takes quite a while on fulls sometimes.

Darn :( My first full rejection. It somehow didn't hurt as much as I thought it would, though.
