So Many Questions... So Few Answers
Today has been an odd day. For months the Internet has been blipping on and off here at home, and we were able to finally prove that it was the botched DirecTV installation that caused the problems, so that's good.
On the other side of thin... Read more
I've been aching to write this all day long. I'm terrified, in a way, of letting this all go, and of putting it all on the line. I know that this is going to be difficult for me to write, but I hope that I might, in writing it, be able to reach ... Read more

Well, they're getting easier, and I guess that's a start. I made it almost twice as far today before I started to sweat. It's not a hot day, so that's cardio sweat. My legs are always screaming by the time I get home, and I'm only doing half a b... Read more
