Well, it's officially summer and I've got four wonderful kiddies to keep entertained (or at least keep from killing each other) until school resumes in the fall. I didn't sign them up for a bunch of camps this summer partly due to economics and... Read more

OK, I have not mentioned this before because I truly thought it was a non-issue. I am going to continue working out, I have come to enjoy it and actually look forward to it so I've just got to deal with my hair, right? Wrong! I need a plan an... Read more
