I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

    I enjoy working in the yard. It is therapeutic for me in several ways. I usually know what needs to be done from just looking at my yard but this chart is a good source to help me remember the things that aren’t visibly obvious.
