Wow – is it really the end of Round 3!?
Well technically, it’s not -tomorrow is. But this is the last linky of the round, so I’ll make my final September goals tally. On Sunday, I’ll update my yearly goals, and then I’ll see you early in October with my Round 4 Goals Post…
I hope my fellow ROWers are stretching and readying themselves for a well-earned restful phase. I hope that all of my readers enjoy the shifting season! I definitely stretched, in many ways – but I’ll talk more about that in a future post…I like a little processing time at the end of the round…
For now, I’ll just trot out those September goals, and account for myself! =D
