Breaking up with Facebook
I decided that it’s time for me to kick Facebook to the curb.  I’ve toyed with the idea a few times before, but it never stuck.  I mean, I run a business so I need Facebook, right?  And my homeschool group has amazing resources.  And my team group!  Support is SOOO crucial!  And I’m an admin ...

Guess who’s back?  Back again?  Bokerah’s back.  Tell your friends… ————————————— Lists. I am a list maker.  I feel better when I can see my life organized by lists.  When I get stressed, I make lists.  When I am depressed, I don’t make lists.  When I am depressed because there are too many bills and ...
