I’m not sure if there’s a technical name for the issue I’m having.

This past week has really taught me that you can’t plan for anything. Of course, living in the moment is for teenagers and meditation.

I did not intend to wait this long to do a finance update but life got so busy for a hot minute there!

We had a big ol’ scheduling conflict this morning.
I was supposed to go to a meeting for the Rally to End the War on Drugs this morning but Ran had a board meeting for the Chamber so I needed to bow out until next week’s meeting.
