Never Ending Chores

Never Ending Chores

My daughter sings this song called “The Song that Never Ends” and it goes on and on, my friend. And you started singing for reasons just because….  This reminded me of chores that never end.  I think they must have always existed for humans.  Currently, us, modern humans, have got the dishes, laundry, going to […]

The Power of Cleaning One Bookshelf

The Power of Cleaning One Bookshelf

It felt easy to focus on one area, one type of item and be able to clear it in an afternoon. I wasn’t overwhelmed when I started. And once I’d finished, I felt like I’d really accomplished something, and I had, but best of all I wasn’t exhausted nor was my living room a mess. […]

What Makes the Best Bath Ever?

What Makes the Best Bath Ever?

Over the last year, I’ve been working hard and have creating amazing things in my business. This has been awesome and great, but I’d also lost touch with having fun outside of work.

I swear, I’m not serving frozen pizza for dinner AGAIN!

I’m sure you can picture it, it’s been a long day.  I’ve been working with clients, making decisions about what to do with this, which tender subjects to have them delve into. I’ve chosen which emails need my immediate response. I’ve planned events for next week, ordered lunch, and continued my work day till I […]

A Mellow Thanksgiving

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and no one got too side its tracked from the thankful part into politics or other topics that make family gatherings awkward.
