Do you like how I personalize my kid’s school supplies? I live for school supplies, you should have seen me in Staples, investigating every last row and aisle for fear I’d miss the one thing I know would Perfectly Organize my life forever.
I didn’t find it. And therefore my life will never be perfectly organized.
