I am enjoying your blog? I am sure you saw the movie about how addictive McDonalds food is to the human body. I am also interested in your self-regulation studies as one of my current initiatives at school has been increasing self-regulation skills for students with time and material management problems. Do you have any suggestions?
Please catch some California sunshine for me. You are right, winter is optional. Your parents have been their usual wonderful. Take care. emily
