Tostada Pizza

I have to tell you all I made a major life decision.  I quit my job.  I got a new one, but I quit my 9 hour a day one.  I feel like a monumental weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  I have time for myself, my family, happiness.  I feel like a completely different person.  It’s wonderful.
