Boy, do I have a story!

My story is complicated and most times, I wonder how my mind really works. I leave post it notes to myself or voice recordings on my phone with suggestions for blog posts or random thoughts that come to my head.  I’d like to share with you all a glimpse into my psyche by just listing some of the recordings I have found on my phone and post it notes attached to my desk.

These tragic events unfolded today and all before 6:45am.  Who can handle that kind of a blow to their chi?  I LIVE with that BodyBugg on my right arm all the time.  The watch display is not syncing to my armband and on top of all that, when it did sync,…
