The downer about having not sung in a while is the confidence I once possessed in my ability to do well has dwindled. What...
Of my my top 5 favorite Christmas songs :) Enjoy!
Wow…an hour at work and in tears. Not exactly what I had in mind for a Friday. Ugh. I just don’t understand how they can be so mean to each other and so rude to me. It makes me sad. I’m ready for nap time.
