Well it looks like we don’t need this website anymore but we will leave it up as a reminder of just how far we have come. My mind wandered a bit this weekend while doing the mundane yet apparently way overdue task of sealing my countertops. I’d love to launch a new website to champion another cause but I’m not sure what that should be. Maybe just a simple blog for the time being to keep me busy and from spending two days trying to figure out what is the best granite sealer before finally buying one. Maybe a blog is a better way to waste time than on unimportant decisions until I find a cause that ignites a fire in my belly.
