New Year, New Me? Screw it

Sourced from abas-erp I don’t speak Spanish and I am not planning to learn it for the next coming months – I am in the middle of a big project and I have no time for that.  It’s a shame, I can give you that since it’s been over two years we live in Mexico.…

Le mari, cet espèce incomprise

Je me demande si mon mari est une espèce à part.  C’est ce qu’on appelle un workaholic. Il ne raterait jamais un jour de travail.

My open letter to the ‘Google is your friend’ type of person
