We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...
