Happy Sunday, fellow crusaders! With eight sleeps till Christmas there’s not a minute to spare, so I’ll keep this brief. This next week is a crash course in time management, but I hope you find a moment or two to enjoy the season.

…pack it in

Crusaders, it’s here, our first big week of the holiday season. We are mere days away from turkey time and I’m guessing a lot of you out there could use some of that tryptophan right now to slow down your heart rate. No doubt about it, it’s going to be a busy week for most…


Today we celebrate Friendship Day. And before you write it off as some fake holiday invented by the greeting card companies, let me stop you. Because it totally was.

Happy Saturday, fellow crusaders! Congratulations on making it to the weekend! Enjoy it while it lasts because you have less than 48 hours until it’s Monday again. Sorry for the harsh reminder of reality, but I needed a segue into today’s unofficial holiday — Not-National Enemies Day!
