You ever have one of those weeks where everything takes longer and is more difficult that it should be?
That’s this week. My team lost the NLCS [that’s okay – I’ll be fine ;)]. Personal and professional stuff reared their ugly heads. Big announcements that were supposed to be made, haven’t been, and the newsletter sign-up form hasn’t been working right… [but if you still want a chance to win you can sign up for my newsletter here or here – or email me if it’s giving you fits…]. There’s been problems with my website. My oldest turned 13 [not a bad thing and I adore her to pieces, but sometimes… ;) and it means I’m getting old!] – just one thing after another made this week a hard one.
So I’m gonna cut to the chase ;).
