    Hi Ladies!

    I'm looking forward to a great 2013! It just feels like it is going to be great!

    I am starting with another personal 100 day challenge which started yesterday. I am still plotting my professional goals. I started the year well, complete with an award from my job, but I absolutely need to figure out how to structure my time better i work from home, have not been as productive...

  4. 100 Day Sprint

    I have had a few setbacks in the past 12 months (September '11 -September '12) and I am determined to finish 2012 strong. September 22 technically marks the start of the last 100 days of the year, but I am starting right now.

    Today is a wash day! I will DC with heat and put hair in twists for access to scalp.
