Julie Goralka, after suffering writers interuptus (i.e., job and family), returns to her muse - the written word to explore just what it all means when the day is finally done. Be prepared for just about anything - from the obvious hilarity of semi-adult children to questions we all have regarding what the heck our government is up to.

Julia's 6th grade teacher wrote on her report card that he wanted an autographed copy of her first book. Since then, she has done very little writing aside from some creative writing classes 30 years ago and, more recently, a bit of journaling. Instead, Julie found herself working at a major Chicago-area bank, first as a word processor, then secretary and eventually a Division Coordinator for a marketing desk on the trading floor. The bank wasn't a very creative environment, but she is one of the few people around who can type numbers almost as quickly as words.
For the past 19 years Julie has been a stay-at-home mom to her three children, all of whom are beautiful and obnoxious in their own ways.

Well, maybe she'll let the dishes pile up instead of the dust; one of the teenagers is allergic.
Oh, and there's a husband around here somewhere, too.
