So I just had some much needed chocolate and coffee over here at my friend's house. I'm staying with some friends for a few days, while the hubby is gone at school. It's been, uh, strange? to say the least for the past week. Last I wrote I had gone through a traumatic experience from my … Continue reading Jumping Ahead & Falling Behind
