…of the hostage situation…..not really it just feels that way. I am exhausted and can’t sleep. Big changes are coming for myself and my family.

We currently are between leaders. Technically we have a president, still. He leaves office in January, maybe. This uncertainty is causing extreme anxiety for some people. It is out of the hands of the humans who are upset. Sit back and let the system work. There is no infallible system of government. You have to…… Continue reading Take me to your Leader

It is no secret that I have been married more times than the average human. I was never looking for a husband when I found one. I got married for all the wrong reasons. Maybe if I share them with you, you will not make the same mistakes as I did. But wait you say….Aren’t…… Continue reading Look A Man
