Hello, December

As you have probably already figured out, I did not win NaNoWriMo this year. I've been trying to spend less time beating myself up this year and more time focusing on what I am accomplishing. For example, I did not come even close to winning NaNo. But I did write¬†something. I have the project set … Continue reading Hello, December


On Twenty-Five Years

Today is my twenty-fifth birthday. I have officially lived for a quarter of century. I know, right?? Twenty-five years feels like forever and nothing at all at the same time.

My Experience with Low FODMAP

2018 Goals: May Recap

FlyLady in May: Zone 3

For the month of May (and a week in June) I am experimenting with using FlyLady to help myself be more consistent with housework. Each Monday, I will share how I did with the daily missions as well as the daily checklist for the previous week's zone. I will do my best to be as … Continue reading FlyLady in May: Zone 3

FlyLady in May: Zone 2

As I said last week, for the month of May I am experimenting with using FlyLady to better manage my household chores. I tend to be that person that does a huge amount of housework at once and then collapses and has no energy to do anymore cleaning for the next week. And repeat. Or … Continue reading FlyLady in May: Zone 2

May’s Experiment: FlyLady
