HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wanted to "ring in" the NEW YEAR with a challenge for myself and anyone who is reading this. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have recently (now "fairly recently!") moved and I am still putting things away and simultaneously finding things I forgot I even had. One of these things is this … Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Quote of TODAY!

The landlady was amazing and I still think whatever she was paid could not have been enough to manage the apartment complex she did manage. At any rate, when … Continue reading Wednesday Wisdom Part 2!
