This Sunday I’m knee deep in lime green paint and zebra striped wallpaper. Oh yeah, being mom to a preteen girl is an adventure.
“I don’t like this.”
I didn’t either. Drums pounded in my temples to a wanton beat. Around me, the room spun in clockwise circles. Drunken ambition sloshed through me. Yet I hadn’t had a sip of wine.
