Whew! We Made It!

This has been a week of serious soap-opera proportions! Curly is no longer sick, and Georgie only ever gagged - but they were both off kilter for the first 3 days of the week.

What’s Your Plan?

I will be the first person to admit that I am very possessive of MY schedule. When I make a plan and write down a schedule, I really don't like unexpected changes. It's not that I plan my day out hour by hour or minute by minute. That's a bit too rigid for me. I… Continue reading What’s Your Plan?
