Yikes, it’s been a rough few weeks. Along with some nasty business stuff, which is actually normal in my line of work, I was supposed to be on my first real, non-working vacation in 14 years, which turned into a workation. What should have been normal was much less fun than usual as my husband […]

It took me a long time to get past my fear of leaving Microsoft Internet Explorer.

In my wildest dreams […]
