Yikes, we had unexpected company from Alaska this weekend, the most fun class on Saturday at Drygoods, plus Seahawks to watch and here I am last minute to do the class line-up for the week!
I’m not really sure what this says about me, but I was cracking up this morning that we have a copy of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People essentially unread in our bathroom. I did read it once in college and hope I’m applying some of it, because I can’t remember a single habit.
Cheers to forging ahead in 2013!
