@phylliskhare - Really excited to learn from you about this this week. I have a system that works part of the time, but mostly I feel overwhelmed! :rofl:

Have you identified what starts the overwhelm @ruthbinman ? I can directly address it if you know. If you don’t, I think I can help with that, too. I’m really looking forward to sharing all of this.
