I Don’t Have Time For That! By: Overflow Creator Andrea Olson

Dear Friends, There’s a conversation that’s heard echoing all around us right now.  It’s like a reflex.  Almost habitual…and our answers (myself included)?

A Christmas Note From Overflow

I opened my eyes and traffic began to move again. The roads by the mall were seasonally crowded, lending more time for thought than driving.
