Afoot at The Circle-K. And Around Here Too

There are some changes happening around here. Please, if you will—as with my growing-out-bangs—bear with me and ignore the cleaning lady doing the dusting and vacuuming around here. The timing of these changes is a little funny, actually. This coming weekend I am speaking at The Mom 2.0 Summit in…
