I am ready for spring mostly because we need to go through that before we get to summer. I am tired of this cold weather. That’s why I need you to spread the word about this site so I get hired as a writer in Hollywood and can make enough money to move somewhere warm. See, I have had a plan for this blog all along. In the meantime, you can keep me going by remembering once in awhile to make sure to send the love!
