How Do You Do It? What Helps Your Body Get Through the Day?

One of the things that helps me get through the day are little energy boosters. Productivity enhancers, if you will. A series of good nights of sleep is a great start. When I have no dietary or budgetary restrictions, I might take advantage of a Vanilla Coke, over crushed ice with a straw; a good […]

It’s Raining; It’s Pouring; My Life is Never Boring

But, something that makes Christmas more special, more organized, easier, or more meaningful at your house. I’ll be featuring something that says, “Christmas,” to us. I hope you’ll […]
