Do you hate stress as much as I do? I mean, it just  feels just so...bad. And it has a LOT of side effects.

Last night's cooking left a huge sink-full of dishes. And hubby and I have a deal: whoever doesn't cook has dishwashing duty. It's only fair, right? But before we sat down to eat, he insisted on clearing out the sink..each and every thing. (Rule one for controlling his stress level: never sit down to eat on a full sink. Me? I can easily shift my eyes away from it and worry about it later.

Or maybe it's the fact that for the past month, because of and a lot of my own work, I've been holed up a bit more than normal. But lately, loneliness has been sharing my space with me.

As we prepare to launch our new and improved website, things are very busy here at ! We're so excited to share all the great new features we have in store.
