Wow, plug, plug, and plug. What was I saying? Ah yes...see, apparently, readers like logging in on a given day and knowing what they’ll be getting. And they like blogs that update more often than once a week. Did you know that about yourselves?
At any rate, that's what the PWB say, and who am I to argue with the PWB? And I’ll just come right out and say it: I want to be at the cool kids table! So after much brainstorming, I’ve decided that for the indefinite future (ie for as long as I feel like it), we’ll be having Open Letter To…Tuesdays here at Never-True Tales. See that alliteration?

What Works for Me
1. Coffee. Every morning. Of every day.
2. A husband who can balance a checkbook (and does so regularly).
3. Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia.
4. Our Sony personal DVD player on road trips.
5. Children in school from 8-2.
Trust me, it can work for you, too.
