  • Lady Devils take down Lady Indians

    Every year since I can remember, I've always vowed to get an earlier start, plan better, stretch out the chores and actually enjoy the holiday I love so much.

    It's only a few days into December and I can already tell I am going to fail miserably at my goals.
