I’m just tired.

Which is a bit of a washout of a phrase, let me tell you.  I mean, it just sounds like you need more sleep.  And sometimes it does.  As someone who gets up waaaaay too early in the morning, sometimes I just need more sleep.  But sometimes I say, “I’m just tired,” because it’s a […]

Year Round Fun

Everybody’s talking about New Year’s resolutions, so I’m going to talk about calendars!
