Roadtrip! And a Little Staycation

Last week I was on vacation, and OMG it was glorious. Did I clean my house, no! Did I do our laundry, no! Did I spend time weeding our garden, no! Did I wash our windows, never! These are often the things I get stuck doing when I decide to do a “staycation.” I end […]

The Dodging Homelessness High School Tournament ‘13 I was always picked last for dodge ball games in high school. Prayer […]
