Just Leave Me ALONE!

I’d love to tell you I am typing this in a nice, quiet and absolutely alone spot.  But I’m not.  My two year old insists on sitting on my lap and I can hear my two boys wrestling/fighting/playing in the next room.  I’m about 20 seconds from my period and woke up with a migraine […]
