Where I Whine About Too Much Work

We’re back at the store. There’s organizing galore happening. Kelle brought me this beautiful stand that her charming husband made for her baskets. She doesn’t use it anymore.

It’s Definitely Been A Circus Around Here

Last night we went to opening night of Ringling Brothers at the Palace in Auburn Hills. First I have a complaint.
