This year my resolution is to clean things. Because everything is a mess in my life. Everything. And I’m not trying to suggest that my family life is turbulent or we are financially stressed or in poor health. No, I am not talking about that kind of a mess. I am talking about a messy mess.

Hehehe… (Places…

A YARD SALE IN MIA’S HEAD-a graduation, a seal of approval, vacation with Mia’s boys

This is not going to be an organized post. Instead, it will be a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Stream of consciousness… Better yet, think of today’s post as a yard sale in Mia’s brain.
