I have done three of these posts in three days. I am trying really hard to catch up. In real world time, it is actually WEEK 16, not WEEK 7. I have finally gotten a good system down, but in order for it to work, I need to catch up. This is the week after the week in California. I notice three things. I am kind of slob, which I know is related to travel recovery. I really want to warm clothes like I did in California. And the lightening is incredibly unpredictable this time of the year.
