Hi Valerie,
I was so excited to take your course but  reality set in today. With all my 
other obligations, this will have to takewa backseat.
So I am withdrawing form your class. I will do this again sometime or work 
locally with Judy and James..but since it is brand new to me, with my 
current full time work and graduate school schedule, I can't give this the 
attention it deserves.  I'll be in Thanks,
Ann Swope
