OMG! Where Has The Last 23 Years Gone

My eldest daughter turned 23 years old at the beginning of July and I thought to myself, OMG! Where have the last 23 years gone? The years really do flash by in the blink of an eye.

That’s another story when it comes to my GP, and there is no point holding a grudge. I need them on my side not against me at this time. Any way, a couple days after… [Read More]
