You know when you have a plan in your mind of things you want to happen in a weekend, certain things on your to-do list, and it doesn’t quite work out that way?  Yeah. I’m having one of those weekends.  I decided a few weeks ago that Saturday would be my Sabbath:  I normally go… Continue reading weekend mix-up
