Back to School

I used to like to work from home before COVID. It saved me commute time and there were no distractions. Now, there’s nothing BUT distractions! I don’t know about any “new normal,” but I do know we need to get these kids back in school ASAP! Since there’s no timeline for that, we went back […]
