Is It Time Yet?

After the last two years from hell, my parents are yet again in crisis.

Please Don't Mention the Circus

You might think that honesty is one of my best qualities, but it’s only because I am a terrible liar. Not only that, I tend to over communicate. When asked a question, I feel the need to answer it fully and pretty much address all of the tangential issues I can… Read full post »
