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...

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.
Joining NJoy's Sulfur Mix challenge (getting ingredients today, mixing, starting application tomorrow). Will put starting pictures in the challenge forum.
