Things On My Mind

Maybe I should call this post things on my phone instead of things on my mind.  I'm going to let you in on a little secret I "might" be one of those mom's who sit in the grocery store parking lot and read my favorite blogs.  It seems like it's the only place to get any peace and quiet these days!  When I want to remember something  I take a screen shot of it.  Today I thought I'd share with…
