Sunday night I stayed up late trying to sync my iPhone. If you know how disobedient iTunes can be, and how long it takes you to back up purchases on your iPhone when you haven’t done it, (like, For.Ever.)… you’ll imagine the kind of time I had to kill while everyone else was asleep. I […]

Sometimes you gotta let it go… and a Give-Away

Have you ever felt overloaded? Like you were drowning in the millions of things you thought you NEEDED to get accomplished in life? Do you have a super-mom syndrome? I know plenty of homeschool moms (including myself) that would answer any of those above questions with a resounding YES. I am giving away TWO copies […]
