Not even close to the miles I wanted, or needed to get in for the month… Seems like so many things just got in the way … (See post titled Best Laid Plans)…. Whether it was not feeling well, injury, our crazy schedule, or unexpected trips to the ER, I just didn’t get out […]
No wonder we can’t get any help for our daughter….
