I knew I was bound to be exposed sooner or later.  My summer writes like that of a well worn trashy novel. It all started with a rash.  A rash that wouldn’t go away no matter what I tried. When I could no longer hide the rash I gave up. Why keep trying? Does it […]

Guest post by Michelle. An idea was subtly suggested to me by someone a few months ago; to consider stopping the use of cloth diapers because of the time I invest in their cleaning and such. This suggestion was presented not in a negative way but in a sympathetic way, trying to help me find […]
