The Un-Balance of Motherhood

The Questions.  They catch you off guard. They jolt you back for a moment. You look at the questioner like a deer in headlights. You blink, speechless and dumbfounded.

How Not to Prepare for a Hurricane

The week of Hurricane Harvey, the forecast went from “disturbance in the Gulf” to “a Category 1 hurricane headed your way” to “you will soon be hit by a Category 4 hurricane.” The good news is we evacuated from Kingsville in plenty of time, and honestly could have stayed put.
