The latter is often overlooked or neglected; instead, we throw ourselves into parenting and/or become consumed by our efforts to co-parent. Self-care all too often […]

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Remember back in the day when people used to call into the radio station and dedicate a song to their boo?  Well, I’m in that kind of mood today, but satellite radio just doesn’t work that way.  So, here’s my dedication, to my one and only, TechBooHusband (hope you don’t mind that it’s by my […]
