Once upon a time, I could write four or five blog posts in one sitting, and have them scheduled out over a couple of weeks.

Sometimes, I fantasize about being the Master of the Universe. Because if I was, these would be my Universal Laws, for the good of mankind (and our sanity). Totally Reasonable Universal Laws Mothers cannot get sick when the children are. We should not get any pimples after the age of 15. Toast should never burn… Read More
