Is the floor clean? Of course, on this important day, as we are heading out the door to catch the train, essential oil spills out of the pantry and glass shatters all over Ozzy's dog bed. Great. Thankfully, the Marta train is on time, I manage to find a seat and relax for a moment.  I cannot believe it's already here. Where has the time gone? We're in...
