With the blog, the make lemonade shop, my catering job, and just life, I am busy and stressed out. Yes there are days when I wish that I had taken the time to stand in the shower to relieve a lot of tension. I try to watch the amount of caffeine I drink, because then I can’t sleep at night. Really great tips even for those of us whose kids are a bit older.
