Spilled Gravy

When there is spilled gravy… my fridge with spilled gravy In December, I purchased Marie Kondo’s audio book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.

what our children need

  My mama has told me on several occasions, “that when it comes to your kids, it’s not what you put on them that matters, it’s what you put in them.”  For a long time, this statement was just that, words that my mama said. I really didn’t put any stock into them. But for the […]
