I should be miserable this weekend.

I have a report given to me on Friday which is due Monday which means that I am working throughout the weekend.

But I must count my blessings.

Work for me on a Saturday morning is on the dining table of my home, a morning shower blessing the world and my children puttering in the living room, playing indoor baseball with their dad.

I sometimes don't count my blessings. Yes, I want bigger and I mean way bigger dreams for my business but at the moment, there's work trickling in, slowly, surely and I am still in control of my time with my lovelies.

He gave us his wicked smile 'I do it myself' he said it again.

At 3.4, he was doing bat, cat, hat, bus, car,
