ROI Analysis Please

It might be hard to believe, but I’m getting worse health-wise. My working hypothesis is that when my immune system was down, I actually acquired FRED’s flu … so rather than getting better, I’m just on the down-tick of another virus. Blech.

Have to be careful about MONEY

I am JUST about to walk the dog. (Hah! I’ve been telling myself that for 45 minutes.) But trying to work through emails/paperwork, I am convicted by just how CAREFUL I must learn to be when it comes to $$$$$$$. I’ve had a number of “LITTLE” inconveniences related to money in the last month–and I think they are starting to …
