If I could only profess my love to my crockpot, I would have done for several times already. This wonderful piece of kitchen equipment has saved me from a number of times now. This time, however, it gets the help from my very own mother.
I am a bit busy lately. Projects are coming in and I had to supervise them. The set up with my job is that I am managing my projects online. While it is convenient most of the time, it sometimes makes me forget about things. My mother visited us and stayed with us for a couple of nights. During her last day, despite my busy schedule, I pushed to bring her to the airport, bringing my sons with us.
