It just hit me today that it’s the first Monday of the month. That means it’s Reality Check Monday time again. And it also hit me that I didn’t post one for LAST month. Yikes…how does an entire month just get away from me? Time is like that for me. I can go into a store, feel like it’s just been ten or fifteen minutes, only to discover I’ve been… Continue Reading
