    I've had an astrologer email me

    for some time now. One of the things that popped out most was that I have a lot of potential and talents screaming to be used. Of course, without a credit card, I cannot get the full look into it, so I'm at a loss of where to go with this.

    Feeling Spacey!

    For the past couple of weeks, I've felt almost as if I'm in a daze.  School is going by at a snails pace, the kids are getting to me every second of the day, I can't seem to find the energy to clean the house.  The thought that keeps running through my head is that I need some...
