It goes something like this: And then I panic and delete all my social media off my phone. I was wishing I had “phone-call” friends ..read more

Yesterday was a roller coaster of a day not helped by my exhaustion since I have a senior dog who won’t sleep with anyone but me, but who also won’t sleep. I can’t go into the details of my roller coaster day but suffice it to say: If you have days where you feel like ..read more
