What’s the best thing that happened to you this week, either at work or outside of work?
I got to attend a school event called "muffins with mom" with my youngest two elementary school aged kids. It was so awesome to see how happy and proud they were that their mommy was at their school with them.

In high school, a friend dragged me to Marilyn Manson featuring Cold.
