Trying to keep it calm

Yesterday was a pretty intense time at “Not Jean.”I left there ragged and I am struggling to dig myself out. I tried to stay quiet this morning. Chilling out and doing a few things on the internet. I spent last night drawing a new intricate design just to keep my brain occupied. I am supposed…

One more and done.

The boy headed back to the Big Apple on Sunday. It is killing me. He is “home” safe and sound. He was so thrilled to finally have a refrigerator to himself. They had added a brand new fridge to his dorm. It is so important for kids to have food available especially when you do…
