  • December Goals

    I’m about 17 days late on posting these goals, but in my defense, I did write them up over Thanksgiving, just haven’t posted them on here yet. On the long list of things to do this month, writing on the blog keeps getting shuffled lower on the list. But as I’m about 99% done with
