Overloaded, Exhausted And Burnt Out

UNITED STATES—I hear this question all the time: why are you so tired? I sometimes have to laugh inside because if I truly said what I wanted people might think I’m attacking them.

Black Friday Utter Mayhem

UNITED STATES—Black Friday, which I have renamed Black Thursday (let’s be honest, the sales have started on Thursdays for several years now), it’s a day unlike any other in the retail arena.

Turning The Cellphone Off!
