I’d be right back to a warm house shortly after leaving, this was all the motivation I needed to get up. I’m absolutely positive my mom didn’t want to go into the office as early as she was but does because she has to.

It’s cold outside – we have layers to wear protecting us against the elements. Remember, it could be worse…
