>News Flash: I have worked (almost to completion) on three songs this week, have taken my first Portuguese lesson (which I will post about later), and am preparing myself to spend the morning to early afternoon at either Panera or Whole Foods in an attempt to finish three (!) chapters of at least one novel right after I take a trip to the bank to grab the one bank statement I’m missing for the mortgage application. I have, however, gained a pound this week. Oh, well. Four out of five ain’t bad.
