members in his office at the time. OOOPSS! J

classes and beginning to feel normal again after the car accident.
buying new workout shoes.
If I have to be
honest – I haven’t bought new ones for oh…probably about 3+ years. And I wonder
why my feet have been killing me! I can’t help it – I hate spending money on
6) My IMPECCIBLE
ability to be able to pause the DVR to catch the BEST faces EVER! I seriously
