Hans Olsen, a Finn Juhl "Chieftan" Chair, and an overused word
Oh, heh heh....hi there! Man, I really do want to write this blog, despite all evidence to the contrary. But maybe you get it? Family first, business second, and self-expression/professional development through blogging maybe somewhere around #800
on the list of priorities.
But, my grandma said something curious yesterday (and believe me, there's nothing new about that). She said she's getting tired of hearing people say that they're busy.

On the other hand, the pace of my life is so out of hand right now that I've started forgetting to eat, take showers, and other normal-people behaviors like returning phone calls and trimming toenails. And it makes me feel like a stinky jerk.
So, I'm curious. Working mama-ladies, how do you deal with your priorities so that your relationships and body odor don't suffer (or so that your relationships don't suffer from your body odor)??
