12:23:20 From Karen : I follow Cathy’s first this then this 😉😘
12:24:49 From Kimmee : Sometimes I ask Channing what’s his plan
12:27:50 From kelseyholt : Love all these ideas, hope I can hold on to them as my kid gets older… I love when you talk about not having a lot of hard and fast rules – this can be hard for me when I’m in my place of black and white thinking, which is mostly based in fear I think. Also, I love your tone examples and right now I’m struggling with my tone when I’m triggered. So hard to switch into playful when I feel pissed so quickly. Just sharing, don’t need to talk more…

13:04:11 From Millie : I did have a sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach this AM when I read that Jeff Flake ended up supporting Kavanaugh. I just hope that this ends up putting a LOT of women in government in November, just like after the Clarence Thomas hearing
