Fight Song

As my little ticker in the lower right corner shows, this week I surpassed 30 miles on the PJF Trail, and I kept right on going.  At about four weeks in, I’ve done 37.4 miles so far.  If you understand math, you can tell that I have a long way to walk before I hit…

Mani Monday: Butter London Review

So I went on a little nail polish shopping spree the other day.  I got some unhappy work news, (It’s fine, everyone still has jobs and all, but I’m not going to have funding to keep visiting some of the child care programs I’ve been visiting.) and a co-worker and I felt we needed a pick-me-up after work. …
