I paid for it this morning.  Headache. Bad attitude. Short temper. And have I mentioned that my daughter is in…

3 Steps to Create a Positive Environment

This morning was a mess. We got up late (oh where is my Miracle Morning when I need it!), my husband had to leave early, the kids were arguing about their breakfast and the dog had an accident in the Living Room. Seriously.
