Winter Walk

Things have been crazy stressful lately. M1 and boytoy moved two doors away. They like to stalk us and tell us when we are home and not home. They call for me to come over to help multiple times a day. The help they need is setting up a baby swing for their roommate, change... Continue Reading →
