WANTED: Sleep. If found, please return ASAP!

Blogger: Karin Mahoney. I'm baa-aack! Sort of. Truth be told, I'm not sure if I'm here or there, what day it is or if I'm wearing clean clothes. Speaking of which, when did I last wash my hair? Becoming a Mom has been the BEST gig ever. Sure, the hours are crazy long, the boss can be temperamental at times, and the night time hours required are less than desirable.

(And with baby on the way, you can start sending your sympathies to Mr. M.) The testimony raises questions about … [Read more...]

Needless to say, I was there for probably 30 minutes a lifetime, trying to find cards for my Mom, nephews and niece, and of course, Mr. M. Do I go with a funny card? Something more serious? THE PRESSURE IS INTENSE PEOPLE. Saying the wrong thing on the most over-hyped romantic day of the year can … [Read more...]
