I’ve Got a Prescription for That!

Posted by on Sep 8, 2018 in Blog |

I was with a client the other day and we laughed over a joke I made. I told her, “I think people should have to get a prescription from an organizer before they buy a container!”  Disorganization is no laughing matter,  but the joke did inspire some reflection.

What Their Father Learned

My Granddaughter came for a visit last week. She played with her toys and talked to her Grandpop, but her favorite activity was sitting quietly and stringing beads to make a bracelet. Sitting at the craft table, she reminded me of twin four year-old girls I had met and their playroom. I was hired a few years ago by a nice couple with a problem.
