It’s In The Bag
My 'mom' bag, spilled secrets. I only call it a mom bag. It's actually my safety blanket of sorts. I feel very off my game if I don't have a bag with me. Even if it sits in the car and I just take a purse or wallet into wherever I am going. I feel … Continue reading It’s In The Bag

Chores. I don't really like that word, but house upkeep is a necessary evil.

Weekend Line Up – Friday Freak Out
Friday...a lot of us, myself included, feel an automatic stress release hearing that word. Nine-to-fivers have a couple days off, don’t need to constantly tell your kid, “Time for bed!”.
