  1. It looks like a good week ahead and I will try to be present and accounted for Wed. and maybe Fri. I need to pay more attention to your schedule and not just pop in Monday, Wednesday and Friday like a literary laboratory rat. Erin who blogged on Thursday is a member of my LAUNCH TEAM for Pete's sake. I'll be looking more closely to Tuesdays and Thursdays.
