Life can be stressful for the busy woman. It’s not all daytime TV and mani/pedi parties. There’s errands to run, a household to maintain, a kid/kids to take care of, food to prepare, chauffeuring, and the occasional gym session when you can squeeze it in. And those are just the big items. Your day can be just as exhausting, if not more so, than those going to the standard 9-5.
