41. Like your job? Despite never feeling caught up ...heck, never BEING caught up [except when 'Grandma' visits-she's the laundry Queen.... I leave for an appt./shopping, come back & holy smokes(!), didn't know the washer worked that fast (& we're talking masses that have bred like India rats)... if the clothes didn't smell so clean, I wouldn't believe it... like my masthead say, I am blessed.. but, I digress..] ... and feeling tired much of the time... Momma-hood is good.

That was fun getting to know more about you and finding out we drive the same cars! I'm a Ford Expedition girl myself. And yay for kicks in the bladder! All is well!

.... you really should look into 'LBC'(laundry birth control) ... am happy, though, that you appreciate my helping out some.

Also happy (and maybe a bit proud !) of how you 'momma' Little Someone, but I've told you that before!!
