A couple of weeks ago, Karis had a screaming high temp (103 at one point), and was NOT feeling well. She was very fussy, did NOT want to be put down, but every time you flinched or moved even the slightest little bit while holding her, she would scream. Continue reading…

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
