So they tell me today is “Take Your Kid to Work Day.” This actually worked out well, since my kids didn’t have school today. (Actually, I think that may be the reason they didn’t have school today.) Anywho… Considering that my so called “place of work” is also my “place of sleep”, “place…(Read More)

Do you suffer from anxiety? Do you worry about the mountain of things you have on your to-do list and how you’re ever going to find the time to get it all done? Sure. We all do. With today’s hectic lifestyles, it’s easy to worry yourself sick about all the little…(Read More)
