Busy Life

Sorry not to have been making posts the last few weeks. My job has been keeping me extremely busy with training, new project releases, a lot of QA, and tons of additional work because of high absenteeism. In between all this, I started an organization class (to organize your scrapping space) and a weight managment class through Kronos to get my personal life in order.

Since I don't have anything crafting to share with you (I promise something to come later this week), I decided to post some of the things I learned in my weight management that might help others.
