Confession: I Could Be Wrong.

Three letters for you sisters: Y2K. But here is the problem with that, Y2K had absolutely zero religious significance. I didn’t buy it. I worked in computers during the Y2 scare. In fact, I worked for Hughes Missile Systems, and I didn’t even flinch. But […]

Confession: Sitting Down Now.

Confession: Sitting Down Now.

Today, I decided that I can not be everything. Teacher, Mother, Raw Chef, hostess, crafter, housekeeper, spiritual leader, a cover model, and….you guessed it, Father. When your husband is a traveling salesman, it is glamorous at first. He brings you home chocolates and trinkets from […]
