I have something to tell you and I am warning you that you are not going to like it. This is something I learned last summer and probably read about long before that, but I stuck my fingers in my ears while screaming “la, la, la – 1-2-3, not it!” Ok, so I did not literally scream out loud.

Just received another email. Another upset friend blaming herself because she had a bad day. She cheated. She ate junk carbs. She wanted to confess.

My ten year old self felt so cool playing such a grown up game with all of my ten year old girlfriends. I seriously lived for sleepovers where we got to bust this game open and act like the teenage girls we voraciously studied in the Sweet Valley High book series.
Who among us doesn’t have a case of the Mondays pretty much every single Monday? Being a stay at home mom, pretty much every day is Monday for me, but lately actual Mondays have become so much more Monday-ier.
