Mommy Is Now Entering Sleep Mode

Hey. Noob Mommy here. Remember me? Gosh, has it really been that long since my last blog post? I’ve been meaning to write… but then I fell asleep. I’ve been meaning to write… but then I watched two seasons of Californication. Who knew Fox Mulder (aka David Duchovny) was such a witty little bastard. I sit down in front of my laptop, load the blog, crack my knuckles, and then… I decide to go lift weights in the garage. When the kids {Read More}
