Shopping Made Easy

I know it’s been a little bit since I last posted. I have been so busy trying to arrange a few things that I had to take a little time away, but now I’m back. If you haven’t already noticed I have a couple new pages up on the bar above. One of which is called “In The Spotlight” this is where I would like to do a article for that page on a individual who deserves to have the spotlight shown on them. That could be for a number of positive reasons. Maybe they own their own business, or maybe they are a working a parent, or maybe they do some awesome volunteer work, or maybe you my devoted readers feel they should just be there. No matter the reason I have a link at the bottom of that page where my readers can choose who they want in that section for a month. So if you know someone, or maybe you want to be there yourself then head on over and fill out the form I’ll be in contact.

Next, the second page you’ll see is new is the “Online Shopping Directory”. I have a few online business owners who wanted to bring their business to you by posting their banners, shop description and the link to their shop. There are a lot of choices to choose from, but these are an amazing business owners. What makes them unique is that these shop owners hand make their products. It’s not easy, but they get it done. I know how are it is to run a business online since I too have an online shop. My shop is Kaely’s Kuties and the banner can also be found in the directory. So take a moment when you are done reading and checkout these wonderful people they are worth knowing.

The items these shops bring are amazing. I have listed a few.  There is a shop for handmade soaps and shampoo bars. Which of course can be unscented or naturally scented. Another shop carries handmade Bohemian jewelry and fragrance sachets. One shop carries personalized items even for school, sports, teacher items and much more. Another shop carries necklaces, earrings, cuff links and collar clips. There is even a shop for Yogi-Boho-Zen stretch bracelets. These are just a couple of the shops listed on that page there are many more that carry a wide variety of items. Some off these fabulous shops have even included some great coupons to use in their shops. If the shop has a coupon it will be included under their banner.

You can also look forward to some product reviews that will be coming out soon. I hope you, my reader, will enjoy everything that come and is coming.

Kids, Bicycles and Normality

Ok today I was watching a video someone put on Facebook. (What would we do without Facebook?) Anyways, so back to the video. It was of these 4 year old little boys riding this little bicycles and making jumps. Now I’m not talking about little 2 feet jumps I mean actually jumps most adults wipe out trying to make. I was amazed. I even watched in a couple more times after that. Normally, I wouldn’t be so amazed by something like this, but while watching this I happened to look over the top of my computer and see my daughters bicycle sitting in the corner of my living room. She has one of those cute little princess bicycles with the basket, bell and training wheels. My daughter is 7 years old (today is her birthday if I haven’t mentioned that today Happy Birthday Kaely!) but here is my seven year old daughter riding a bicycle with training wheels while these little boys are dare devils.

What is up with that? I want to know where kids like this are? I mean I don’t see them around my town. Actually, I haven’t seen kids play outside very much now a days not like we did when I was a kid. I had to go outside or my mom would lock me out. I always hated that, but maybe she was on to something.

Here these little boys are jumping ramps, stairs and other various things. My daughter is riding a princess bike with training wheels. The training wheels aren’t the best part. The best part is when she does ride her bicycle she makes me walk beside it in case a various crack is in the pavement. When she does come up to these cracks she dead stops and panics like the crack is going to swallow up her tire or something. As a mother I want to tell her she can do it she is an awesome bike rider, but as a human being I want to be like “what are you think how can a crack the size of a human hair attack you?”

Then I see these little boys riding their bikes jumping things. It just makes me feel like I messed up somewhere along the way in the bike riding department. I guess every so often us parents get to feel inferior when we run upon these types of Facebook videos or other videos posted on the internet. I bet I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow after school. I’ll be teaching my kiddo how to ride a bicycle without being swallowed by a crack in the pavement.

That is my view on bike riding for the day!

I’m Not Taking That Cake!!

Just like the title of the post says I want to rant it feels like a great day and season for it. So if you got a rant you want to air out to make it known, or to make yourself feel better then jump on board and leave it in the comment section. So buckle up and here we go!

Two weeks ago I called every bakery in a 50 mile radius trying to get a Frozen Elsa and Anna cake made for my daughters 7th birthday. This year she is having a big party and I don’t do big parties very often. Usually we have small get together so this is a big deal for her. I told them when I ordered the cake that it was very important and I didn’t care what it cost as long as it was wonderful. Are you ready for the story twister here? I bet you can guess what happened!

I call today they told me the cake was ready so I picked up my daughter from her elementary school and I rush right over to Walmart in Paintsville, Kentucky to pick it up. When I arrived in the Walmart Bakery there the first thing that happened had me completely mad.

First, the lady was beyond rude. She had so much attitude she was practically asking me to loose my mind and I’m a very calm person. She acted like the cake wasn’t there and when I told her I just called she magically found the cake. (I’m convinced there are wizards in the walk in coolers that hide our cakes until we demand to see them.)

Next she pretty much shoves the cake at me. Ok at this point I’m ready to pop off her head, but I hold my temper in check since I do not want to show my 7 year old daughter what happens to rude bakery workers when they push mommy too far. So as I’m holding the cake I haven’t looked down at it yet, but my daughter has. All the sudden she burst in to tears and I’m so confused at why my happy daughter all the sudden has gone bipolar. She is so upset she can’t even tell me why she is having this breakdown. Which by the way is so not like her. She only breaks down with a reason not out of thin air, she has been saving those breakdowns for when she is a teenager.

So I try to set the cake down in the buggy so I can calm her down to find out why everything is falling apart and I see the CAKE. (I have used caps here because it is not a normal cake it doesn’t deserve to be called one.) This CAKE was supposed to have beautiful mountains, trees, snowflakes and most importantly the characters from the movie since that was the whole point. Guess what it had? NOTHING!! There were no characters. It was a pink, purple and blue CAKE. The trees where green swirls randomly all over the CAKE. The mountains looked like a toddler had laid his hand on the cake and traced it with white icing. Heck the lines of the white icing were all over the place. Also this CAKE was $30 it was supposed to feed 40 people and the CAKE in my buggy would barley feed 10 people.

At this point I’m beyond mad and have accelerated my temper right into psycho mom. I look at my daughter and tell her to stop blubbering that we are not taking it. She stops. I tell the bakery worker that this isn’t what I ordered I was very specific when I ordered and I’m not taking it. Then she pushes me farther. She just looks at me for the longest moment not saying a word. Then she speaks and says “it’s yours.” I snapped.

I took the cake and shoved it into her hands. “I’m not taking this blob and I’m not ordering from here. I don’t want it you eat it you sure look like you could use another slice.” (Since you can’t see this lady I’ll describe she is around as she is tall and I think she is about five feet tall.) I know I sound rude, but I mean this lady was beyond rude to me and I took it. She messed up my order, but worse of all not only did she mangle the CAKE she made my daughter cry the day before her party. By her messing up my order she left me without a birthday cake and her party is tomorrow.

Luckily Foodcity was in the next parking lot and they took pity on me. They made the exact cake I wanted in an hour. Hmm I wonder how hard it was for Walmart Bakery lady she had two weeks on my order? I bet she worked real hard (sarcastic giggle).

I just don’t get what this lady thought she was getting by with I mean she acted like a total ass and then she mangled the most important thing I needed for the party. If I had done that to a mom that was a stressed out as I am I would have hid in that magical cooler she had back there because a mom that stressed is going to blow up like an atomic bomb. Maybe those wizards she had to check with put a curse on her and I was seeing the result of it. At least that is the only excuse I have for her and that is me using my imagination because I can’t imagine what was going through her head.

Well if that women stays working in that bakery I bet I’m not the only mom that gets onto her. I just home the next mom doesn’t try to pop her head off. Some people shouldn’t be cake decorators. I know that I would not be a good cake decorator so I don’t do it. I also would not be a good mechanic so I don’t work on cars. People should not take on big jobs that they know they cannot do if they don’t want to see the outcome go down the drain. I mean if she could not make the cake I wanted they why did she tell me she could and assure me two weeks ago I would have the prettiest cake. Yes, this was the same woman that took my order and yes she did make the cake. I did take time to find this all out before I verbally assaulted her.

People just amaze me sometimes.

What Kind of Mom Are You?

untitled (17)

Being a mom isn’t a science no matter what the magazines say we as women aren’t programmed at birth to cope with what ever motherhood throws out at us. We all have a different way of parenting, which is fine, because any way is not wrong because we are all different individuals as well as parents. When I take my daughter to school I sit in the parking lot for five minutes after she walks in to make sure nothing odd is going on (yes I know it may sound weird but with what is on the news now a days nothing seems overprotective) as I sit there I watch all these parents talking, herding and motivating their child it comes to me quickly at how different each of these parents are and how different their strategies are. So what kind of parent or mom are you? Below I have a make up of a few types now if you don’t find yours on here it doesn’t mean that it’s wrong or you don’t exist it just means I haven’t found you yet. So if you think you are a different type please feel free to comment and tell us what type you are.

The Loud Mom
This is the mom that talks above all others. She either has more than one child and must be loud to be heard or if she has one child still feels she is not heard when she is not loud. Even when she is mad and gets louder than normal her child never is afraid because they have become adjusted to how loud their mom is. Even though she seems like a screaming parent she is not. Secretly at home she is like a circus ringmaster trying to rein in all the occupants and have them doing what they are supposed to do. A lot of moms that seem to be very loud normally sit when they are alone and worry about the way they handle things. They also strive to be quieter, but yet it never pans out because when they try their children just go on past like they are not even there.

The Octopus Mom
This mom is just like it sounds a mom that seems to have arms growing out of her body. She has to juggle so many different things that it makes you wonder where she gets all the extra hands. Sometimes this mom may have to juggle events such as baseball practice, cheerleading, basketball, girl scouts and fundraisers. Then she must go home and juggle home life. She is the envy of a lot of other parents because it seems she is on top of everything and is well put together even though secretly she feels like a house of cards that it can come down at the smallest quiver. She is very organized, post its, notecards, calendars and labels are a normal things for her she takes pride her organizational skills. Some moms in this category can be found running for government office in the school systems such as PTA President, Parent Council or even a coach of a sport. She sometimes may feel that she is doing too much and then she looks at her children to realize she is doing just fine.

The Helicopter Mom
Just as it sounds this mom is like a helicopter she hoovers. She is the mom that stands outside the classroom ten minutes longer than other parents to make sure her child doesn’t need her. She sometimes watches her children sleep to make sure they are ok. She worries constantly and a little more than others about her children. She worries about lunch at school, bullies, hand washing, teachers and anything else that could arise if she isn’t around. She has a hard time letting go as her children age and go off to do things on their own. When her children are old enough to go out or to friends houses she calls their cellphones more than the parental limit. She also may have apps downloaded on their phones so she can track them in case they need her. Of course she has down this secretly so the kids won’t take them off the phones. At playdates she plays more with the kids than talking to the other moms because she wants to make sure her children are fine. She knows she is hovering, but she can’t seem to rein it in. She is the mom that shows up at school unexpectedly making an excuse that little Sally left her pencil at home so that she can see with her own eyes that little Sally is ok.
(*Note: We all have a little helicopter mom in us just some have a little more than others.*)

The Protector Mom
Sometimes this type of mom can be mistaken for the helicopter mom because they are so much the same, but yet they are very different. The Protector Mom doesn’t necessarily hoover she is more likely to enforce. She is the mom that gets mad instantly when her children tell her something that happened they don’t like. She is more likely to get in face to face confrontations over the smallest things that involve her children. If little Bobby gets in trouble at school for talking on the phone and the teacher takes his phone then little Bobby goes home complaining about it this mom would more than likely show up at the school demanding his phone back. She doesn’t allow other kids to bother her children she will go to their parents and demand justice. She is the mom at the baseball game that is screaming that the pitching kid is out of the age group and the team is stacked. A lot of other moms feel inferior to this mom, but what they don’t know is at home this mom is like the teddy bear of moms.

The Nervous Mom
This mom can be spotted a mile away. She is the one that seems like she is a tantrum away of having a nervous break down. She tries to get her children to play by the books and if her children get boo-boos she is always thinking the worse of things. Other moms can talk this mom into doing anything easily. If they want her to work a bake sale they just have to tell her and she will agree because she doesn’t want no one to be upset with her. After all her kids go to school this mom goes home and can finally take a breath. This mom really needs time to herself so she can keep it all together. She is meek and quiet. She doesn’t express her opinion to much, but she also has a very sweet side to her and her children think she hung the stars. This mom needs a time for mom maybe a weekend vacation every so often, but she never gets around to it.

The Overbearing Mom
Before I go into this type of mom I want to just say that we all have a little of the overbearing mom in us no matter what you think she just hasn’t came out yet if you haven’t seen her, but she is there. Also being this type of mom completely and not just a dab is very rare. I think I have only seen a couple of women be completely the overbearing mom.
This mom is just like the title overbearing which in some situations can be a great thing. She is very strict on her children and expects them to do exactly as they are told. She doesn’t take any crap from other adults and will tell them exactly what she thinks. She is constantly lecturing her children telling them what they should be doing and how she is older therefore wiser. Already has planned out their futures and expects them to comply. She is fierce and dominant. She would do anything for her children, but she just can’t let up on them. She can’t control what she says no matter how hurtful it is. Her children are terrified to disappoint her, not in fear, but because they just can’t bring themselves to let her down because she expects to much from them. A lot of other moms are intimidated by her.

The Nurturing Mother
This mother is the sweetest of moms. Everyone likes her especially her children. She is very loving to her children and hugs them all the time even when they don’t want hugs. She rocked her child until the child was big enough to rock her. She kisses her children in front of their friends even when they beg her not to. She is aware life is short and wants her children to enjoy it. She tells them they can do anything with their lives, but gives them the space to make their own choices. She embraces creativity and still has their finger paintings they made when much younger hanging on her fridge. She carries a lot of pictures of her children with her so she can show everyone when she brings them up in a conversation. Her children will always come home for holidays and will miss her terribly when they are away from her. They love to be home with her because she makes it so much fun. She accepts them for who they are and is always happy with them no matter what they do in life.

As of right now that is all the types of moms I have listed, but you never know when I’ll find some more and add it as I go. So like I said if you don’t think you are on there then tell me what type of mom you are and I’ll add it for you. Not everyone falls into a category we are all very different. So you may be one of those moms that falls into all the categories because you have a little of each type in you that is fine because we are all different. Children don’t come with instruction manuals so we are the mom we think we need to be and that is just fine. So embrace what type you are and embrace mommyhood because it is the most special thing in the world. It is the perfect job and the most rewarding job you’ll ever have.

So bless all you moms out there and you have wonderful day!

It’s a Makeover… Thanks For Asking

Welcome Back!

When you got here you probably looked at the title on the top of the blog and then looked around right? Yeah I know you were thinking you made it back to Project Save a Mom! Well surprise!! I know everything looks different and the blog has a new name, but don’t let it confuse you it’s still the same me just a new look. It’s a makeover!!

As a sat here looking at my blog the other night, I started surfing the web and reading blog posts for various other blogging moms that I really find wonderful! I was entranced in their creativity put into their names and posts. So then I looked back at mine and I had that frumpy feeling we get when we notice that our hairstyles are out of date. It then hit me, like a light bulb had finally flickered it’s way all the way on, I needed a blog makeover. So I watched my daughter play dress up and role-play her favorite games. That is when I noticed I had a very smart girl going through a princess phase and that my friends is when my name just lit up in front of me in bright flashing lights. Since I have a princess at home and I write about motherhood why not name my blog “Princesses and Motherhood”?

It’s the same blog I always had just an update on a few other pages and titles. Also a whole new look for my background. Since my daughter is 6 getting ready to turn 7 in a couple months I have been trying to pull myself out of the baby phase. It’s where we as mothers realize our children are no longer babies and there isn’t going to be any small babies in the house ever again until we have grandchildren. In my case it’s an if I ever have grandchildren since my daughter informs me daily that she hates babies, they are annoying and if she has her way she will never have children. Haha you have to love little girls and their assertiveness. But it’s a really sad time when we as mothers figure out our baby days are over, but we have to move on. So to get through my baby phase I took it out on my blog. Honestly, I think it was for the best because I feel my blog has never looked better.

Now if you have an opinion on that I would be more than happy to hear about it! I love to know what everyone is thinking so if you have any input about my new blog makeover then let me have it, or even if you have some advice on what you would like to see let me know. I would really like for this blog to be more engaged I have seen other mommy bloggers have discussion on their pages so I’m really striving for a few more comments or informative points of view.

Well I hope you enjoy the new look and the new pages I added I think it is for the best. I’ll be updating more posts soon, but I thought I would explain the new titles, pages and look then let everyone get used to it. So I’ll give it a couple days to sink in.

With a new look comes new content. Wait until you see what I have lined up for you in posts I’m hoping to blow your mind with them. So come back soon!! I’ll be posting updates and newsletters on my blogs Facebook Page so if you haven’t already went over there and gave me a like please do so to keep up with updates.

Have a wonderful day and continue to look around!! If you have a opinion don’t keep it to yourself let me have it I am always willing to know how I’m doing!!

All Children Have TMCAS and There Isn’t A Cure!!

eyerolling

As a parent we deal with a lot of attitude especially when they hit that certain age and everything they say sounds like sarcasm. I was always told it started out at the terrible twos and it would be over by the time they were three or four. I can’t remember who told me that, but I wish I could because I would walk right up to them and slap them. They must have lost their mind when they went through it, or they just became immune so they didn’t notice it anymore. Because my six year old has more attitude than most sixteen year olds. If she would just give me that attitude and demand twenty bucks along with the car keys I would believe a teenager had took over her body.

No matter what I do my child is always there at the most wrong moments along with her new gained attitude. It could drive a person to drink and I don’t drink. If I’m cleaning or need her help she is no where to be found. Nope not a trace of her I wouldn’t be able to find her. It’s like she has learned a new super power of invisibility. But if I’m using my computer, working in my boutique, reading a book, or heaven forbid taking a pee she is right there. Then it’s this beast that has waited to I’m at my weakest to prey on me. Kids have TMCAS this is short for (Teenage Mutant Child Attitude Syndrome) this is where a perfectly normal child between the ages of 4-12 think they are a teenager and only develop the part that wants their life span shortened.

Now I don’t know about you, but the law says we can’t spank them or we go to jail. We put them timeout and the climb back out. We have yelling matches. I know at least I do I can’t be the only one. I’ve read all the parenting books and honestly they don’t prepare you for this you just have to wing it. The eye rolling, the back talking in low tones they don’t think you hear, the words I hate you, feet stomping, door slamming and anything else that makes you want to tear off your own ears so you don’t have to hear it. Now I know I make my child sound worse than anyone else’s, but I just commanded that children in my house at this moment are now confined to bedrooms until 8am when I don’t want to bang my head into a brick wall. So I’m a little irritated at the moment because she is in her lair that she calls a bedroom and I know just as soon as I relax a little she will find something to complain about. I swear when she is being good it’s like tip toeing past a dragon cage you don’t want disturb the monster inside, but you really want that cup of coffee. The question is this, is it really worth it?

I swear I’m not insane I know it can’t be just me it has to be everyone, right? Some days at the main end I am ready to throw my hands up and say I just can’t take it anymore. But you know what I really can cause I love the squirt even though I feel like ripping my own hair out. All truth and honesty she isn’t as bad as I make her sound she just had a TMCAS episode about fifteen minutes ago and I haven’t recovered yet. I really think these kids train for this it’s like a sport to them an Olympic game and they are winning. I have seen kids at stores act worse than mine does so it is official. It’s an epidemic. All kids of this TMCAS and there is no cure. It’s going to get worse until the grow up and move out. By this time I for one will be nuttier than a fruit cake and no good use to the general society. They will have to lock me away. I know it I can see it now.

I feel like the chick I watched on TV. She told her kids if they rolled their eyes at her one more time she would pluck them out. I hate eye rolling it’s aggravates the crap out of me. Then when I tell her to stop she asks me what she is doing. Like she don’t know she just rolled her eyes. I mean hello the kid just looked at the ceiling, counter, floor and recliner in one swoop she can’t honestly think she was just sitting there looking at me. HELLO!! I might look old to her but I’m 28 I know what it was like to roll my eyes and now I think my mom shouldn’t have slapped them straight in my head. I’m going to call my mom tomorrow and tell her thanks mom for telling me I would get it back in my kid. Because she was right. If that is the case though then everyone I seen at the grocery store on Monday received it back in their kids too. I had to step over the kid who bangs his head on things to get bread. We all know this kid if we don’t have one then we have seen him too in public. He is the one that got made about a cookie so he decided to knock himself senseless in front of the bread rack on a concrete floor. The mom (poor her) is so tired of telling him to stop beating himself that she just lets it go. When I looked at her she just gave me this look that said he’ll quit when it hurts. Haha no he won’t. Because he has TMCAS and it has invaded his little body so he doesn’t control it anymore.

The future for this epidemic looks bleak. I don’t think there is a cure. I’m hopeful it’s like a weak allergy thy will grow out of it. If not then the lady who talks to her shoulder better scoot over and make room for me so I can talk to her other side. I’m going to be in a straight jacket before I’m 35.

**Note**
I do not let my child go wild and terrorize me. I am the mother and I do discipline in a non harming a fit punishment. This post is how a I mother I feel inside when battling my child also before and after I command discipline. It is a ramblings of a parent nothing more nothing less.

Back To School Chaos

back to school

Welcome Back!
It’s been a little while since I’ve updated my blog and for that I sincerely apologize. If you have not seen my last post I have been a little busy trying to start a small business that I’m going to be running out of my home and selling my products online. Since all my items are handmade and I do custom made for those who ask for it I have to work very hard with long hours (to bad I don’t get paid by the hour I would be rolling in it haha.)

Anyways today I was sitting online surfing the web checking out a few items. For those who are just now tuning in I have a six year old daughter Kaely who is going into the 1st grade. Since going to school requires new clothes, new shoe, new underwear, new socks, new backpack, new lunchbox and new school supplies I have had to get my shopping game on. Apparently new school gear requires more preparation than a glitz pageant for national all stars. I have had to surf through online stores to see what the new trends were, make a shopping list, create a game plan, do budgets and then the last step run it all past the queen of the hour my daughter. She is the one who has the last say so if she throws out an idea I have to start over. Now I know you are thinking I’m probably nuts for letting her have so much control. This is my thoughts on this matter, because trust me I have thought the same thing about myself. The way I see it is she is the one who has to wear it, carry it, show it off and deal with it so if she doesn’t like then she isn’t going to be happy. If she isn’t happy with it then she won’t want to go to school less than she does now. If this occurs it will result in me having to find more creative ways to coax her out of the bed at 6am. Trust me at 6am I am not creative at coaxing so to make a long story short in the end she will wake up screaming wet with cold water and I’ll be covering my ears holding the pitcher that tossed the cold water. So to prevent that ugly scene from occurring every school day I let her have a lot of control with the shopping it’s a win win situation.

So the point of all that long story was this:

Have you noticed that even with game plan when you get to store of shopping choice it looks like a turkey after thanksgiving dinner, picked to death? It didn’t happen to me just one time it happened a lot. Like try 5 different stores and by the way 2 of those were shoe stores. So what is up with that? Please I want to know so if you have the answer please inform us all we are dying to get an idea of what’s going on here!! Cause the way I see it is school starts the same time every year it’s like your birthday you know when it’s coming so you prepare yourself. Well apparently while I was preparing myself the store wasn’t on the same page cause it was chaos. They know it’s coming so why didn’t they stock up??? Kids have to have clothes for school and they didn’t have enough for everyone. On black Friday they prepare like they are going into battle, but on back to school shopping days they slack. Stores need to be more prepared and name a holiday for this occasion like kid invasion day and they should prepare for more than battle this day they need to prepare for a nuclear explosion equal event.

The next problem is the prices!! I mean we are parents clothing our miniature, back talking, sticky fingers mini me’s so of course we want the very best for them. This doesn’t mean big chain stores can exploit us for every penny we have. They know we have to have it so they jack the prices up so it about kills us at the checkout. I’m being literal when I checked out at Wal-Mart I thought I was going to flop out into a seizure when I saw the total. I paid a little of $100 for like 6 outfits. I don’t think a couple of them were complete outfits at that. I thought Wal-Mart was supposed to have low prices, hello, I didn’t find it very low. I’m just saying if you know for a fact you are going to take every penny we have for things we have to have then give us a break. We are parents not rich business men. Most of us drive mini vans and have a stain on the corner of our shirt that we can’t honestly remember where it came from. (Note: if you are a mom to be or a mom who’s kid isn’t in school yet, heed my warning save up for school clothes like you would save for a college fund.) I think these stores also charge by what grade your kid is in. I’m serious last year I found awesome deals and my daughter was in Kindergarten now that she went up a grade the prices on the clothes went up too. What is going on?

Well I’ve ranted enough for the time I think. Give me your opinions, if you found awesome deals let us all know we have to stick together. Also please take the poll survey so we can see what everyone is thinking. Have a great day! Remember we are here to help each other trying to save a mom one at a time!
