Whew! Its been a long week. I don’t know why, but it seems like last weekend was years ago. I wonder if time had frozen in between…hmmm….its like one of those ‘4400’ episodes, you disappear somewhere in the 1990’s, and the next thing you know you’re in 2014…(People who watched ‘4400’ will know what I’m talking about).
