Call me Elasta-Girl because I am just THAT flexible. Nothing can bend me outta shape! SIKE. I think if there is one piece of advice that I would offer to any person trying to make massive changes in their life it would be this: make plans, but expect them to change. As you go through hourly, daily, weekly decisions things will happen that will cause you to have to make changes to your plans.
Here's some radical honesty for you: If we aren't friends. If we aren't involved in each others lives. If we aren't spending quality time together of some sort. Then I don't want to care for your children. Not even if you pay me.
Not long ago a friend commented that my life was "romantic." If by romantic he means crying over the selling of my bed frame and mattresses then, yes, my life is super romantic because for some reason I cannot get through any move without a slight breakdown.
