Don’t Be An iPhoney

In addition to training for a half-marathon, editing two books, and touring every kindergarten in California, I’ve been left to take care of two snot-nosed kids (literally, there are balls of snotty toilet paper all over the house) alone while my husband is out of town on a business […]

iPad Case Reviews

If you’re in the market for an iPad case, I demonstrate three of them here, and discuss a fourth. The video is on the long side and, yes, I know the top of my head is chopped off. I’m still new at this VLOG thing!
