We got 11 inches of snow and today the high was 0. So the snow hasn’t budged. So now we are on day 1million of Christmas break.

Now what will we do tomorrow?

Engaging

August 11, 2013

I have been working hard to ensure that I am more engaged with my family.  Now that I have left my old job and have had a few weeks of “downtime,” I have tried to be as present as possible.  I have all but absent on Twitter (barely reading my timelines once a day) and [...]
