Managed to wonk up my back but good... maybe from all the yardwork over the weekend. Or maybe it's from when Hannah yanked me off my feet. Or maybe I slept funny. Or maybe... Doesn't matter, really. It just HURTS. This is going to thro... Read more

If I set a goal to lose one pound a week, I will hit my all-time goal by July 1. JULY 1. This is awesome on several fronts. First - and most importantly - it's my end goal. My END GOAL. It was the number I chose for myself when I em... Read more
