Goal Post: A Short Week is Coming Up

I was 50/50 on the goals I made for myself last week.  I did help my son with schoolwork, used my bike twice, went to work, and finished ‘Lupin’.  I DID NOT finish January posts, sleep better, do any paperback … Continue reading

Goal Post: Is It Really Saturday?

I’ll admit that I’m thrown off on what day of the week it is.  My son had a 3 day school week while I had a 4 day work week.  He had Tuesday off, but I had to go in … Continue reading
