When it’s in the middle of a month, it sometimes seems like it takes forever. But then it’s like you blink and the rest of it flew right on by you. That’s how May felt at our house, anyway. Only now it’s over – and I get to dive into the numbers with you. Totally … Read more

I really love putting together these reports – it’s a lot of fun to see where I’ve progressed each month.
