Girlfriends: Improve Your Health

Are you yearning for “me time”? Are you feeling your glass is half empty these days? Are you spending much of your extra time in bed or staring into space? Well, it’s no wonder.  You do over half the household work, kick butt in the office, and run all over town taking care of everyone’s […]
