Oreos are a woman’s best friend

Pardon the absence. In the past month and a half, we have shuffled our kids, car seats, toys, clothes, books, vehicle, dog and other bits and pieces from Virginia to Kentucky to California and it has left me numb. Like Pavlov's dog I arise every morning to the cry of...
