I’ve been Doobleh-Vayed! (And it feels good!) And if that’s not enough to make my day, this morning I took Harper to The Little Gym, and I met a knitter! Last week I spent the entire Little Gym hour listening to a mom talk about her servants (Yep. She has live-in help, and she refers [...]

This morning I took a break from the freelance madness and ran to Sephora to stock up on the stuff that has run out. I had about fifteen minutes to spare, so I decided to go to the book store. However, I never made it there, because I tripped and nearly fell down, and then [...]
