I've been getting a lot of questions lately from friends. They think I've gone insane or somehow miraculously found extra hours in the week that don't exist to other people. I'm involved in....a lot.

This is my first official blog post after changing the domain from rjgs123s to risewithrebecca and I'm excited about it's new direction!

Isn't it weird that all those cringe-worthy memories you have hidden since childhood come back rearing their ugly head when you have kids?
