Today I face yet another chapter in a long saga of car repairs. And, as I'm sure you know, car repairs are not cheap. Every time my car has broken in some way over the past nine months, I immediately feel surrounded by a cloud of frustration and stress. Yes, there is the hassle of… Continue reading It’s Just Money
You may have noticed that I haven't posted anything in the last two weeks. Or maybe you didn't, I don't know. And that's on purpose (mostly). I've decided to blog every other week rather than every week.
