Staying On Track- Extreme Productivity

I am fascinated by technology. My husband and son have a challenge going to see how many pieces of technology they can get me addicted to at the same time.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland – well, almost!

I’ve had such a struggle with walking this winter. I convinced myself to go out today and brave the ice with my funky ice-pick straps that actually work with Vibrams (though only just – they are a bit finicky and need lots of readjusting, which is still better than cracking my head open on the sidewalk).
