A Week in Boston – Part I

Tweet Before I start, I just wanted to mention that I did post Week 15 here, the week before we headed out.  It wasn’t a complete week, it wasn’t even a great week, I’m a broken record again, nothing new there.  I’m having a real love/hate relationship with blogging and I’m not sure anymore how…

Week 12 – #roadtoberlin Update

Tweet The week I was going to change my attitude. And mostly, I’d say that happened. So, SUCCESS! However, sometimes things don’t always go to plan and you really have to look at things in retrospect and accept your situation. My situation is that I’m just not completely healed from my operation. I probably won’t…
