I’m done, I want out…

This is a whiny Wednesday post. I’m done. I want out. I’m convinced that living in this country is making us constantly sick.

Please don’t call me…

And I won’t call you… Yup, that’s right. I am not being rude, or maybe I am, but I can explain. I have a reason. It probably isn’t logical to you, but it’s real for me. The problem is, is that I HATE talking on the phone. Truly, truly, I hate it. It brings out […]
