This is my Clinical Director. Except Claire is my CD's evil twin. My CD is classy, dresses awesome, is charming as fuck and even looks like Claire/has the same haircut. Luckily when I told her my mental avatar for her, she hugged me and took it as a compliment. I did tell her she lacked in the evil area though.

It took me years to re-learn how to make Christmas a magical time again after growing out of the Santa belief. It could be why some ppl continue the tradition - trying to hold onto that feeling when they were kids. Who knows? I worked 24hrs straight so I might not make much sense. Read more

I'm an Austin mom! I have a 5yr and a 2yr old. I also work a crazy job with crazy hours but you can give her my contact info. I work with families so if I can't hang out with her, maybe I could help her meet people.
