I’m Beat (Oh AND Winner Announced)

I’m beat. Hence the title of this blog post. I suppose we all feel like this sometimes, so hopefully you’ll be nodding your head along with me, and maybe even share a little of your own story below. This is not what I had planned to blog about today. I had been preparing all week to post about my first serious Sandwich Generation (SG) topic–guilt. The guilt I’m talking about […]

Cell Phone Dilemma
