So yesterday was rough. I sincerely dislike having to be the 'boss', but I am and when I have to be- I will. Still, it takes a lot out of me when I have to be firm and I ended up leaving about 1/2 hour early to come home because emotionally I wa... Read more

This one is a no brainer for today- and I would be snarky and say I'm grateful the election season is over. But I'm not. I am not grateful for the money we spend on elections that could go to worthy causes like health care and education and... Read more

My serious sisters and I are reading a book together. I've only begun, but it has already been having an impact on me, and not in a good way. I have found myself really struggling with food more the last few days- having a harder time staying on... Read more
I love a parade
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      17 comments

Actually, I am not sure I do usually. I used to like them as a kid though we never went to them in person. I always wanted to go to the Rose Parade and my dad wouldn't let me. (long story) But in our little town the parades are well attended, an... Read more
