Busy. Not Busy.

I’ve always been quite proud of the fact that I’m constantly busy.  No grass growing under this gal’s feet. No sir. My “to do” list is the first thing I compile every morning as I savor my coffee.  (Now, granted, part of the reason for this is that I can’t remember things for very long […]
