Mornings like this make me wish I don't own this blog. The obligation to write everyday with me battling this sleep is my greatest challenge on earth. Lies. That's not my greatest challenge on earth. My greatest challenge on earth is how to become "slim-fit" again. The draw we all literally prayed for, came home … Continue reading Early thoughts on our Rayon Sport date.
Good day Guys, It's a late late post today. Apologies. I'll just say, it's circumstances beyond my control. I did try; but sometimes trying is not enough.
