Now for something less serious

Tweet and more “Can I get a ‘Woot! ‘Woot!’?” It’s six days into the new month, I’m feeling strong, positive, happy! Today I officially start my weekend.

Tweet I’ve officially been home from my Greek vacation for one week now. It was only Wednesday that I had to go back to work, so I even had a few days to get used to being home again. Yesterday, quite late in my work day (since I was late anyway) I felt like I…
