I Did Something I Swore I’d Never Do.

I Did Something I Swore I’d Never Do.

I did something a few months ago.  It was about the time that I stopped posting quite as regularly on this blog. Those two things are related.  Just in case that wasn’t clear.  Ha. Over the last 13 years, for as long as I have been a stay-at-home-mom, I have been consistently approached about different work from home opportunities.
