It’s been a very productive Saturday even though it began a little on the rough side. I’ve been struggling with getting over a cold for the last few weeks and it morphed into an intense sinus headache when I woke up this morning. I ended up popping a bunch of new medicine so that CK […]

Just briefly this evening I thought it might be fun to report that I have definitely found my Christmas ornament to commemorate 2012. When I saw this trio of happy and not so happy marshmallows on the ModCloth website I burst into peels of laughter. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve burned my own s’more […]
