I had fun light posts planned (in my head) for this week, but somehow here we are, starting the week (on Tuesday apparently) with this instead. Sometimes I guess when you sit down to write, you don’t always know where your thoughts will take it. And no, Ron, I’m not whining 😉 Just being a… Continue reading Her blonde hair
I love short work weeks, don’t you? It still feels like a Thursday and yet tomorrow is Saturday – so lovely! I took my “Mommy time out” on Monday and it was glorious.
