The Economy Posts….

I realize that Part 3 of the economy posts has not been posted this week. It’s been an insane, overwhelming week with a broken washer, canceled classes all week & lots of emotions. I just finished wrapping up part 3, and will add to it as I can over the next few days. It’s set […]
