Calling All Control Freaks!

As a working mom who travels for work, I’m a 100% self-diagnosed control freak who has the house humming along in a certain way when I’m home. What happens when I’m gone though is what I want to talk about and has taken me years to acknowledge. When I’m traveling, my husband and kids have […]
