Facebook Has Become Wearisome

This will not be news to many of you, unless you only post family pictures and other “pretty” things. For those of us who think Facebook should serve an honest place in society in exchange for the virtual real estate and time it occupies in our lives, we’re just about … Read more…

WHAT IS CONTINUALLY UNDONE IN MY LIFE?

For young mothers, it’s pretty obvious what stays undone in their lives. Keeping up with energetic, curious toddlers, and perhaps having a husband whose mother failed at teaching him what a laundry hamper is for, can be exhausting, if not downright infuriating, until Moms finally just give up. At this … Read more…
