Oh, what a nice week it's been! I must admit that I haven't done much of anything important. I kind of view the last week of the year as a "reset" week. It's a good time for me to reflect on accomplishments of the year, while thinking about possible goals I might have for the … Continue reading 2022, Here We Come!
It's that time of year again. While in general, October is my favorite time, I can do without the end of the month.

Well, our power went out a few hours ago and I'm awake, trying to make sure we have a good plan to get everyone ready for violin lessons this morning. A minor inconvenience at most, really. I thought while up I'd share a small disappointment we recently encountered with y'all. When we moved back to … Continue reading A Small Disappointment
