Last week was a “doosey” one of those weeks where everything goes wrong.  Words come out wrong, scheduling wrong, things were misplaced and well if that is not enough my car broke down – in Michigan.  Yep…..add it to the list gone wrong, my car is sitting in the shop waiting for a part inContinue reading

It has been a whole lot of crickets over here.  I apologize for that.  We are breaking for the end of winter and I am madly organizing and putting life in order.  It is time to come out of the nice warm cocoon we have been living in.  Before I will allow myself to fullyContinue reading
