Most of us live lives of routine, and that routine makes it so we never really forget what day of the week it is.

While the majority of the USA has been sweltering in hotter than hot weather, I’ve been freezing in the land Down Under. And, that makes even less sense since it really doesn’t get to freezing temperatures! I know, it’s strange, and probably just all relative.
