Catholic School Girl Gone Nun

Truthful Tuesdays, March 30,2010; Mommy Breakdown in Progress

It’s Tuesday once again. Time for us to unload some of the things weighting us down in life. No judgment, just an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on, and a helpful hand to help you up when you feel as if you have fallen in the proverbial crap of life. I missed last week, but I need to expunge today!Let’s start by confessing that I am a miserable sick person. When I am sick, I just want ... »
