It’s 04:31am on Monday and I’m already behind!  Heading downstairs to work out.  This all may seem demented to many people including my husband, but I really thrive with a plan.  I do not freak out if things do not go to plan – but it gives me a guiding compass to bring me back to course.  That’s what I need – my own path of the beam on my own journey (reading Dark Tower again!)
