The family that views together?

My mother loves watching television. Loves. It. So it’s been a challenge for her since arriving back in Paradise to adjust to our television viewing habits. Um, we don’t exactly have any? She’s got to feel like she’s in TV Hell. We do have shows […]

Parts is Parts

What does it say about me when I can admit that I spent most of my morning at work putting labels and stickers on file folders in preparation for this next year of business and L.O.V.E.D. it? CONTROL. The woman craves CONTROL. (insert wicked and […]

Once upon a time, the customer used to be right.
