I Finally Did It…

How was your weekend? Mine was good–went to my brother’s symphony tryout, which was fun. The conductor there is a blast to be around (I wrote about him over here). I got to be outside in the fresh air, which … Continue reading

One Way Repetition Is Good…

How was your weekend? I was up in Wisconsin visiting my aunt who’s recovering from major surgery, and helped her with some things. We hope she’ll be able to start therapy in a couple weeks–because she couldn’t put any weight … Continue reading
