Batter Up!

This was originally posted on on July 10, 2011. I actually googled muffin jokes for that title. Embarrassing. So yesterday, I mentioned that I got rid of an obscene amount of mail.

This was originally posted on on July 10, 2011. My garden is magical. I swear. How else would it fill so quickly with weeds? It seems like yesterday that I planted my snapdragons and then BOOM now it looks like this: Ok, so maybe it was 2 months ago and no one’s weeded since then. But really, it …

To-do Lists

This was originally posted on on April 03, 2011. I don’t make to-do lists. To me, a to-do list is a list of things that you could get done at some point in time. There are no “to-do by” dates, it’s just a list of tasks, that you need to do, at some point. I tried to keep …
