"Not So" Superwoman, But Darn Near Close!

So today I swam a mile at 5:30am, came home and made a real breakfast for my family, made 4 loaves of Classy Sudz, put together an auction package, brainstormed the tag line for my new creative company, changed diapers and wiped noses, washed, folded and put away the laundry, loaded and unloaded the dishwasher, AND still made an amazing chicken orzo and cornbread muffins for dinner. This is the life of the housewife reborn!

Hayes Communications has some amazing events coming soon! One being the announcement of my merger with a new partner. Details to come. Right now we are working on promoting some spring development seminars for local businesses focusing on how to effectively use the power of social networking. Depending on how these go, we will be providing another series over the Summer. In the Fall we will be holding our first annual Fashion Show, an elite experience for sceptical Lakeland residents. I can't wait to knock their socks off with this premier event featuring all of Lakeland's best kept secrets!!!

So stay tuned, as there is more to come from this "not so" Superwoman!
