Sometimes it's just not a good idea to click on the 10-day forecast button on the weather website. They're predicting rain and cold weather for the next week and a half! I take that back - the sun is going to shine on Tuesday - or maybe Wednesda... Read more
Just one more week of March and it looks like I will survive! My schedule at the language school eased up a bit due to some cancellations. Having the 5% Challenge as a focus has also helped - my team, the Firecrackers, are great encouragers. We ... Read more
