For some reason I woke up at 3:45 this morning. I don't sleep well usually, but it seems that I wake up when I have someplace I want to go and have an alarm set to get up early to go. Generally I wake up at 6:00 or so anyhoo. This morning I did have an … Continue reading January 6th, 2018

It has been cold here lately, and some colder weather is on tap next week. The weatherman has already issued … Continue reading Updates – 11/27/13

Time Sure Flies

It has been over a year now since the huge changes started in my life, and about seven months since this chapter has begun. I never really had time to think about what the future held for me since I had a huge pile of crap I had to sort through and deal with. I … Continue reading Time Sure Flies
