Monthly Wrap Up – February

Well, February is almost at an end and I think the best way to describe this month for me is just that - it's almost over! Between snow storms and feeling under the weather and rescheduling and a general sense of ennui that always seems to hit this time of the year, I am glad to … Continue reading Monthly Wrap Up – February


When Plans Go Awry

For the shortest month of the year, February always seems to feel like the longest. Maybe it's the crappy weather, the inundation of snow that feels never ending as it piles higher and higher on the snowbanks framing my driveway. Or maybe it is simply that I'm now thisclose to Spring yet it feels so … Continue reading When Plans Go Awry

Cutting Off the Cash Cow

The past few weeks have been expensive. Some of it was planned expenses (the down payment on our September trip to Slovenia/Austria/Italy and the downpayment for the cottage in PEI where we spend a week each summer) and some of it was me going a bit hog wild because I received a nice royalty payment … Continue reading Cutting Off the Cash Cow

As it turns out - not a lot is working for me. Here's how things breakdown: Pants. I have 3 pairs of … Continue reading Winter Wardrobe Wrap-Up

February’s Big Plan

February - the shortest month with the busiest schedule. Why does that always happen? I'll break my goals up into Financial, Professional, Personal. The financial section is pretty self-explanatory--it's all about the money; the professional will encompass my writing, not my day job because that's pretty same ole, same ole and so long as I show … Continue reading February’s Big Plan

Monthly Wrap Up – January

So, as it turned out, January wasn't quite as productive as I had envisioned it would be, but I still managed to get things done. I always think I have more free time in my off-work hours than I actually do and sometimes, a girl just wants to sit down, decompress and not task herself … Continue reading Monthly Wrap Up – January
