Now I Need the Motivation!
Monday, June 20, 2011      3 comments

It has been an incredibly stressful week. Mostly because of money (my husband is a teacher and doesn't get paid in July and August). Also because there is a big law being voted for in NJ this week that is about public workers pensions, healthcar... Read more

Hope everyone had a good weekend, had fun and could relax! On that point, that definitely happened! We saw two groups of friends and had a nice lunch with my father-in-law. Health wise, I was okay. I only ate half of meals when we went out... Read more
