A FAMILY TELEVISION FAST: WATCH OUT

What is happening?!?!?! We’re T-2 days out from pulling a gigantic rug out from under our kids. Well, let’s just be honest. It’ll be a big rug pulled out from under us too. We are getting rid of our TV.* Now before you run away feeling like you need to justify why you are keeping […]

Why I said I would NEVER do a network marketing business

Here’s the deal. You and me and every other person on this planet with a ponytail and a Facebook account has been invited to 30 batrillion parties. I used to think it was annoying. And still don’t always super love it because not everyone is tasteful about it. This is my story. I used to […]
