Discovery Doesn’t Always Make You Christopher Columbus

(Apparently this guy has never been in my kitchen!) Last night, I felt compelled to continue the organizational roll I was on by rearranging my kitchen cabinets.  Although my husband attempted to excuse himself out of my 40 day challenge (“Good luck with your project” he commented unwisely upon viewing my list), I pulled out…

Nesting on the "Cheep"

Yep. Still nesting over here! It’s really only gotten worse. I started out organizing everything in site. Now that I’ve done that, I’m moving onto decorating and arranging.

An important lesson was learned today…

… by screwing something up. Royally. You see, in all of my infinite wisdom as a freelance writer, I had done a lot of things for my husband in his business – all trying to help, of course. But it started to cross a line where I was doing communications on his behalf, and it…

Self-Challenge – Day 2

As promised, here is day 2’s photo, as proof that I have done my dishes two days in a row!  Yes, I know it is stupid that i should be getting excited about something like that – something that should be naturally occurring ANYWAY, but oh well 🙂 I’m proud of me… pretty nice being…
