Clutter Monster Diaries, Part 1

If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign? ― Albert Einstein A Hoarder’s Lament I have experienced a momentary and curious flash of fear, at the prospect of clearing away a substantial portion of the clutter that has surrounded me for years. I […]

Surviving Each Day (reblog)

From The Single Mama I don’t remember if I brushed my teeth today. Most days are like that now. My last few posts have sounded sententious but really, I’m a newbie mom and I have no clue if what I’m doing is going to scar my son for life or create a genius, or neither. […]
