We’ve had another rough week in the Short household. The adults, at least, are exhausted. Max is fully energized. Sunny is getting nursed back to health.
I always try to provide some value in the intro but, I have to say, I almost skipped this week due to everything. Some valuable nuggets live on a few other sites I run. New and old subscribers alike can get some benefit from these:
