Busy, Busy!

Yep, it’s been a few days, but I’ve been busy. On Thursday, we had our first Girls’ Circles of the season, and I followed it up with a meeting, so my day was pretty much shot right there. On Friday, Deb and I were on WNYT’s Live at Noon talking about Halloween fun. I know: … [Read more…]

Oh, Fudge!
