1) Work. Because, you know. Bills.

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.
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
