Goals Update

Geez. I'm already behind this week, and it's only Tuesday! (The husband just came in with Boy #1 saying, "Look how cute he is!" He is pretty darn adorable, which is why it's so hard to get work done sometimes. 🙂  ) I need to get some more writing done today, so I'm...

Weekly Goals

I mentioned a few weeks ago in my I'm Back post that I experienced a mini life crisis the other day after spending over $100 at Target on a week's worth of diapers and baby formula. Since them, I've been reading up on how to save money, namely, I've discovered the...

September 11th

Others have already posted their memories of September 11th. They've written about their thoughts and feelings more eloquently than I ever could, so instead of writing out my memories, I'm posting the thoughts I wrote several days after the attacks. I don't think I've...

I’m Working Today!

My in laws are in town helping out this week. They were here yesterday, but I didn't get hardly anything accomplished, writing wise. I kept helping out with diaper changes and feedings and baby holding, etc. I just feel so guilty if I don't. But I have 81 days until...

I made my bed! And give away reminder.

Remember last Friday when I said I would update this blog twice a week? At the time, I intended to post on Wednesdays and Fridays. With my Monday posts over at the Magic & Mayhem blog, it would be a nice schedule. Obviously, though, I didn't get a post up. But it...

My website is finally live! I'm completely stoked to have such an awesome home on the web. I've wanted to have my own site since first logging on to the internet in high school, and this one reflects me and my writing perfectly. Love it! And I have to give a huge...

Amazon Taxes, Aggie Sippy Cups, and Emails

Amazon Taxes: I discovered last weekend that, since June of 2011, every Kindle book purchase I've made has been charged a sales tax. As I said on Twitter, I'm not exactly upset at being taxed - I think Amazon will have to tax all purchases soon - but I am annoyed...
