Children, guilt trips, frustration
Wednesday, July 31, 2013      4 comments

HMMM. . . . NSV'S
Tuesday, June 18, 2013      8 comments

So as of late I've had a few NSV's that I've not really shared and I thought today I'd take a moment to do so. 1) At the Dungeon we set our 1,000 meter row time about 3 weeks ago; then it took me 3.42.4 min to complete it; this last week we... Read more
