Baked Tuna Mac: Hey Hey! Alyssa, the helpful Hoosier here.

Literally the only shoe that can hold up to the amount of time I work, meals I cook, Aris I chase is a Dansko Professional. I’ll explain more after I lay out my timeline. It’s a pandemic so I’ll keep it accurate to the time… 6:00 am Ari wakes up and demands… everything, I  keep her busy for an hour or so 7:00 am I’m up, I’m dressed, I attempt to wake up the husband, it takes 2 or 10 times or so, I’m chasing Ari around because regardless of how I consistently I’m keeping a schedule she still argues...
