After a long day at the boutique, I came home to an empty house. Heaven! The husband and the kids were out. Nice! Alone time. The house was mine all mine. Well, mine and my pups. In my elation, I ran upstairs to put on my pjs and get all snuggled up to watch some… Continue reading Why I will never fold laundry again, unless I’ve personally washed it myself
A few years back, we told our oldest about Santa. He was eleven at the time. And by 'we' I mean my husband, because in all actuality, I was a coward, and just couldn't bring myself to destroy my son's childhood. And guess what? It did not go well.

The possibility of all three of my kids leaving the house for 6 whole hours...I just couldn't imagine.… Continue reading Why Back to School is Better than Christmas
