    My Door is Still Locked. Let’s Eat!

    Have you set goals for yourself? No, I’m not referring to endless spewing of New Year’s resolutions through December only to wake up & give up by January second. What I am referring to, are things you will actually follow through with. Wait, what? You mean I actually have to follow through with those pesky goals?
