My mom tells me, the apartment you and your friend are renting next year has the same square footing as the house you grew up in, which kept a roof over 4-6 people’s heads.

I will remember its white linoleum floors because it was my canvas for spilled juice and splattered paint and dripped nail polish.

The queen bed my sister and I shared, where we’d laugh hysterically in the dark for hours at absolutely nothing until my mom came in to shush us, and the way she’d come in a few hours later at the crack of dawn to stick our arms through the sleeves of our shirts and our legs through our pants because we couldn’t do it ourselves.

The way my sister and I divided up the Rice Krispies treats and the way I screamed red-faced at my mom because she got upset that I wouldn’t share my Easter candy with my sister.

    nice blog here are few anti aging tips for your audience. Do not leave the house without sunscreen to avoid looking older faster. The UV radiation from the sun can severely damage your skin and it is a major contributor to how your face looks. Also know that too much sun exposure can lead to certain cancers so wear sunscreen every day.

    Take great care of your skin during the getting older process. Discontinue using harsh soaps on skin! Use natural products such as olive, almond or avocado oil to clean your face. Break the cold cream habit if you have one. Cold creams have an adverse effect on growing older skin!
