This week has been for ... reassessing my business and what problem I help you solve, puppy cuddles on the floor with Rocko + Giggsy, trying to get Keith to the airport while several of south Calgary streets are partially flooded, getting soaked up to my ankles while a part of our basement flooded due to heavy rainfall the next day, enjoying my massage clients at my part time job and slowing down.
