keeping it together

I can’t be the only person who has children that love to draw, paint, use play dough, and any other kind of crafting project. I love that they enjoy this kind of thing because it is something that I also enjoy doing. I just don’t like cleaning up the mess and putting everything back where […]

organize your life

I’m a creature of organization. In college, I was so organized that if I was in a class and the professor spoke too fast for me to keep my notes in a nice, neat organized form, I would spend hours re-copying the notes after class. Yep, I was THAT girl.  Fast forward 15 years and […]
