There are eleven days left until Christmas, if you celebrate. Otherwise, there are eleven days until Tuesday, December 25th. I am limping along, taking solace in the fact that everyone else is as clueless as I in what to give people for gifts. The Physical Activity: WIN. I did some kind of activity every day … Continue reading State of Kate Weekly Series
Welcome to December! It's the official countdown to the end of the year.
