week in review: cooking, cleaning, and challenges

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. This week was fall break for me, and it’s been a pretty good week, apart from a near-meltdown at work last Monday. I got my grade for my Writing Commercial Fiction  class:  I made a 90! (Which is an A- at my school, not an… Continue reading week in review: cooking, cleaning, and challenges

gym mystery

I actually didn’t procrastinate around the house this morning for too long. (Busy. I was busy. Promise.) Instead, I did several things that needed doing, and one project that accidentally happened.

living vicariously

…or, seeking inspiration in far-off places. For someone who barely watches TV, I’ve been watching a lot of it over the past week. The Olympics, of course. Volleyball and gymnastics are my favorite, but I’ll watch other things as well. Usually while repeating “How do they DO that?” The gymnastics have been astonishing. (Except for… Continue reading living vicariously

week in review:success, of a sort

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to feel like I accomplished something for the week. Usually I have an overly ambitious idea of what I can get accomplished during the week. This week, I feel like I did much, much better at actually accomplishing what I wanted to. I tried something a… Continue reading week in review:success, of a sort

week in review: win some, lose some

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. Not sure what I accomplished this week, to be honest. Let’s see. I ate a lot of salad (which I forgot to take pictures of). Cooked zoodles with veggies and spaghetti sauce. Going meatless for the day, apparently, and possibly most of… Continue reading week in review: win some, lose some
