Yesterday was my son’s 7th birthday. Seven years ago, one week before Mother’s Day, he made me a mother. Four years later, one week after Mother’s Day, I became a mother again. This time, to a daughter. I was gifted with two...―

When I started working from home when it was out of necessity. Money was tight and I was pregnant. Our son was starting part-time pre-school and we needed the funds to pay for it. Getting a job out of the home, aside from nights and weekends, was ...―
I bet you thought I forgot about Crazy Eyeris, right? Or maybe YOU forgot about Crazy Eyeris I have not written about my journey to derby since March 8, 2012. Yes, I feel a little like a loser. It seems that life was getting in the way of…...―
