Ok... Back to school...back to the very basics...back to keeping track, staying on track, being honest and real with each day; a day at a time. I've reset my goal meter to reflect the damage done over the month of December. I'm not going to... Read more

Another year is here. A new opportunity, a page turned, a door opened. With that door opening, another one has been walked through. I've passed through the room called 2007. What did I learn, what have I done with the year I spent in that room? ... Read more

Count down to Christmas

Less than a handful of days until Christmas. Already the 22nd and still have some things to finish up. A bit of wrapping, little bit of baking and lots of house cleaning. It was good to get to the gym twice these past couple of days. The w... Read more
