More and Better, All Night Long Sleep = A Much Better Outcome for You

And by you, I don't mean you specifically, I mean you, the general public - although, hey, you might benefit. I've always been a person who seems to get a lot done in one day. In fact, some people have accused me of exaggerating/fabricating the list of things I accomplish - nope. I just seem to have a lot of energy (all of it before about 8 pm, haha) and that, combined with what I am convinced is an undiagnosed case of ADHD, just means that I go from one thing to another to the next and just - plow through....more

Checking in on The Neighbors

On the way out of my neighborhood, there are a couple of houses that belong to older couples - both couples are probably in their 80's. Maybe a bit older.
