Another week of August gone? Another week closer to school starting? Hooray! Crraaaap. I know I know…there’s still 3 good weeks left, but I also know they’ll fly by faster than the swimmers who have to swim with Lochte now that they know that he pees in the Olympic Pool.  In all honesty, though, it’s about this […]

I’m stuck at home for the 2nd day with a mucky, gunky, nose-blowing honking, coughing-coughing- coughing, hasn’t-slept-in-2-nights, Thing 2.  I feel so bad for her.
