From the Beach to the MADness

This week started out at the beach, on what was a last-ditch attempt to get away and have some semblance of a vacation before all the MADness hits the fan, and ended with 4 days that felt like 4 weeks, with hours of to-do’s crammed into half-hour time slots.  We’ve all been there, so I’m…
