Satisfying the spring cleaning itch is hopeless!

It never fails. Every year around this time, I get an itch. Not one that requires me to scratch, but I think I’d prefer scratching. It’s an itch to clean the house. For some reason, I become anxious and bothered by objects, dust, or any item out-of-place.

New #blog post—>I am a law school dropout! #family #education #momsinschool

I started law school in Fall 2004. I dropped out Spring 2005. If it weren’t for the support of my husband and children, I’d still be a dropout.

My parents always stressed the importance of an undergraduate and graduate degree. So, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in my 20s and avoided their suggestions to immediately enroll in graduate school. Though my 20s would have been the optimal time to…
