I have two teenagers… both were gainfully employed last summer.  Which meant I had a summer of bliss.  You know what I mean if you have teenagers.

If you told me at 23 that I’d be spending my St. Patrick’s Day weekend debating paint samples and watching The Talented Mr. Ripley on Netflix with my dogs, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. Why?
