Pi Day in Denver, St. Patrick’s Day and more!
posted by: Gretchen
I have taken on a new full-time job. I had, like most of America, been working from home for the past two years or so. When I started back to work full time, I found that the evenings were a bit of a challenge – how was I going to do all the things that need to be done each night? Luckily, I have found a pretty decent routine after about two weeks – but now that daylight savings has come, my dog will be excited that we can go on longer walks again. Not rushed when I get home to get it in before the sun goes down.
