I just thought it was my team having temporary setbacks.....
no big deal if you've got a hundred kids like foosball. if your squad is made up of twenty, you've got problems!
'Nov, Dec and Jan can only get better.'...right...turkey carving accidents, poaching arrest, new skateboard for christmas, ski trips, traffic court, new boyfriend/girlfriend, fireworks mishaps...it's only gonna git better...
Life is not about waiting for storms to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Ahhh. Vivian Greene. Good choice. Should add "...and stomping in mud puddles."
