    Wow, where does time go…

    As I look back on my prior blogs, it seems like I haven’t been here in like months, then it skips to a year prior…so to get everyone up to speed, I originally started out working for 2 attorneys, due to the alignment I was then assigned 2 more attorneys and now I have been assigned a 5th attorney due to my efficiency…WTH??? Yes, my thoughts exactly, anyways I thought I would let you know what I’ve been up to. I think I now am addicted to couponing. I have ...
