Things I learned today… The roomba decided to do it’s thing down the hallway at almost 5:00 am.

Ok, so this might sting. I only apologize in advance just a little, because I don’t really want to hurt anybody’s feelings, but it needs to be said. Sister, if you can’t recognize, acknowledge, and appreciate that another woman is pretty, you need a little self reflection. And to take it a step further, youContinue reading “She’s hot.

Things I learned today… I love it when I go to bed relatively early, fall into a deep sleep, then wake up in the night thinking it must be time to get up soon, and look to find it’s only 11:15 pm.

Things I learned today… I haven’t hand washed anything in a hundred years, and I sure don’t buy anything that has to be hand washed. Today, I had to hand wash a little sweater. Thanks, Stitch Fix.
