Working It..or just working

I have recently begun the adventure of online selling. It’s super small at the moment, I want to see what kind of interest my shop generates before I work my fingers to the bone.

Workin’ It

Therapy is a lot of work. There, I said it. Yes, I have a therapist. I have a damned good therapist. My husband and I have gone to counseling for our bigger issues.
