Nina’s Guilty Pleasures


My list making initiative has been going really well, I’m getting a ton done and feeling better about myself. Part of the deal with the lists is to take time off on the weekends and enjoy life. I’m trying to focus more on the boys, spending more time doing what they want to do rather […]

Pantry Therapy


I’m on a morose kick but what can I say? It’s what’s going on. My brain is still feeling all tweaky, my heart pounds and my chest is tight. I feel crushed by daily activities but I’m trying to deal. I’m good at bucking up no matter how craptastic I feel, and maybe it isn’t […]
