Thoughts on 2014…

Resolutions and Goals for 2014

I am reforming the way that I look at New Years Resolutions this year and making a list of achievable goals instead.  After all, no one really wants to start something so radical in the new year, only to be disappointed.  Here are my 6 achievable goals for 2014. Here’s my list, based on this […]

  Two weekends ago, my entire family on my mom’s side spent our last weekend together in “pleasantville” aka Hackettstown, NJ.

Take, for example, my little brother.  He came home from his first day […]
