Lipstick and Lazy Days

After spending most of last week feeling like I was slowly going crazy from my to-do list getting longer and longer and longer, I decided to take the 4th off.  No working on my to-do list, no doing anything I absolutely didn’t have to.  I’m going to watch TV and knit and drink beer and smell […]
