It’s been a weird week. Actually, I’m going to rephrase that. I’ve had a couple weird things happen this week, and I’m trying not to ruminate on what I could have done differently to change the outcome. (I like these 8 tips to help stop ruminating.) Around these weird things have been really wonderful things, …
