The Chess Adventures Continue…

I sure am a glutton for punishment sometimes.  If last year’s goals taught me anything, it’s that sometimes forcing the issue really doesn’t help.  Take chess for example.  Sure, I learned to play chess, and it got me spending more time with my hubby doing something he likes to do, but did I ever come […]

32nd Year, 32 New Goals

I’m 31!  Yep, my birthday was almost a month ago already, which just goes to show how time flies when we’re super busy!  We just moved at the end of March, so since the new year our lives have been consumed with finding a new place, getting things at our old place in order, organizing, […]

In typical English nerd fashion, I’ll start with a definition: […]

November Schmovember

Some months seem to fly by, some months seem to take forever to reach the end, and some months given the appearance of sluggishness while zooming past like lightening.  The latter is the kind of month I just had.  Ugh. Seriously, it seems like just the other weekend we were creating costumes and heading to […]
