A shout-out about my shameless Amazon promotions.  As an Amazon Associate (an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon), I will receive a percentage in advertising fees (without any additional cost to you) if you order products (and not just those I mention) through any of the numerous Amazon links/banners/boxes on this site. For that, I thank you.

If you find yourself needing something – anything from Amazon like a Sigmund Freud action figure or a Mr. Jones Adult Size Plush Horse Hop Ball Hopper (this is not a dirty toy I swear) or giant goggly eyes or a thumb piano, please go through my site.

And thank you.

    Kenda, haven’t heard from you in a few weeks and I see you are completely off FB. I hope you are doing ok. We are managing back here in PA. I’m staying out sick until things get a little safer. My family is well.

    1. Ciao amico mio and thanks for checking in. I realize I was only going to take a couple days off of FB, but I’ve extended that by a week+ because I needed to create some space for myself. I do plan to return and to keep better boundaries as not to allow myself to get overwhelmed again. I’m so glad to see your family is well and that you can take leave and stay out of this mess. I really appreciate your reaching out. Grazie mille, Brian!
