Playing Catch Up

Learning to sleep again is becoming my biggest challenge so far. I guess staying out until 4 a.m. on Friday night didnt help me this weekend, but I needed a little party time after months and months and months of studying and finishing things up. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends and family who have been supportive and who know how to have some fun too. I have not been to a club in about two years - so it was time to get up and dance.

Now it is time to relax and take it all in... Ive fallen a bit behind on my fabulous intelligence deck of Le Chic Chick cards...(and dusted the box off a bit) so tonight, one to catch up with:
