I am back for real this time! I can do this!

Hi Julia--I have missed you too and am so sorry to hear that you had another shot in your back. I switched jobs in August and am now an academic advisor. We should get together and catch up. Maybe meet for a walk up town or for coffee.

Hi Julia--Missing you at the Y too. I only went twice this week because of weather and then I slept in this morning. Going to start back tomorrow. Hope you are staying safe and warm during this bad weather we have had. When the weather gets nicer if you want to meet and walk around town, let me know.
