Good Vibes

It always surprises me how quickly my busy and rushed daily routine can take over my life.  I find myself stressing out about finishing my "to do" list and getting all my daily chores done.  I rush around like a nut and by 10 pm I'm exhausted and feel like my entire day went SO …

Super Mom

I'm not quite sure why I thought it was a good idea to care for a baby, buy a house and start back up at work all at the same time.  I must be crazy right??  Lately life has been so BUSY!!  But I have to be honest, I love every second of it.  Being …
