Has been crazy busy around here as usual. I've been wondering who invented the idea of having band practice at 7 AM? LOL We were all up at 5AM to get ready and to get Hayley a proper breakfast to get her there on time. With the late nights I'm keeping trying to get my school work done, it's beginning to catch up with me and today I am very tired. Tomorrow and Friday are more days of running and this weekend is just going to be a whirlwind.
Have a couple quotes to share today that I like. I enjoy wise words to ponder. :-)
"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...it's about learning how to dance in the rain" Vivian Greene
"This above all, to thine own self be true" William Shakespeare
