Obviously posting to this blog early in the day works best for me.  If I can get it done by lunch time, I'm good.  If not, it'll be a struggle or won't happen at all.  The last two days I've put it off until evening.  Last two days, evening rolls around and I'm brain dead.Today I took a personal day.A much needed personal day!I headed to the big city to visit with some friends and get my hair done.  I was in much need of a haircut and a color.
