As predicted at the end of my last post, I did not post at all last month because it was busy. Here is how my month went... First up was the wedding weekend. On a Friday, we traveled from Illinois up to Iowa to attend a wedding on Saturday. We thought my body would behave... Continue Reading →
I spent the past few days alternating between resting, stretching, and cleaning. That may sound boring, however I am pretty excited about it.
