I am the mother/chauffeur/laundress/personal chef/schedule manager of 3 preteen/teenage kids. I am married to a guy who makes me laugh more than anyone, but who is battling chronic illness every day of his life. Our household is messy, laid back, loud, sometimes drama filled, but full of love and laughter. I am currently working as a kindergarten literacy paraprofessional in an elementary school. I’m beyond busy, full of stress, loaded with responsibility, have an overflowing “plate,” and currently running on empty.
