It’s happened to all of us. Life gets a little crazy, our list of things to do gets longer, and by the end of the week the single Post-It note with scribbled reminders has multiplied itself. There are now three. Six. Ten. Somewhere amongst the stack is a colored square adorned with big bold letters reminding you to pick up a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift. You find it two weeks after you wrote it. Mother’s Day is now less than a week away. What do you do? Panic might be your first choice, but it’s not necessary. You can wipe away that panic-induced sweat from your upper lip. It’s not too late. Relax. Breathe in. Exhale. zuuzs is here.
