November & December Sliced

I keep getting more and more behind with this whole blogging thing, now I’m slicing November and December in the middle of January! But I’m glad to review the last too months regardless. Maybe this year I can come up with a schedule I can make happen.

Now that I’ve survived December and have a year of months sliced under my belt for 2013, I’m trying to wrap my head around the New Year. I’m still wrestling with setting my goals for this year so I can move forward and successfully slice another year’s worth of months.
