January 2023 January was a much quieter month.  I went back down to 3 shifts per week at my part-time job which is much more manageable.  I had one bonus day at home when the area was covered in ice.  I was supposed to work from home that day but didn’t actually have any work […]

December 2023 December was such a busy month.  It was fun but I have to admit that I am glad that it is over.  I was so incredibly busy that it took a toll on me both physically and mentally.  We had several family gatherings to celebrate the holiday and my younger daughter came to […]

November 2023 How is it already December?!  I feel like I spent most of November working.  Towards the beginning of the month, I was able to work the Iron Flame release party at my Barnes & Noble and had a lot of fun with it.  I took a few days off from both jobs to […]

October 2023 It is hard to believe that it is already November!  This was a routine month.  I worked my full-time job Monday through Friday during the daytime hours and worked 3 shifts per week at Barnes & Noble.  I am spending a lot more time in the car than I did before I took […]

September 2023 How can it already be October?  Seriously, it feels like time just keeps speeding up.  September was another busy month.  Juggling 2 jobs and my responsibilities at home just doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for anything else.  Things finally got back to normal this month.  My dog, Stella, finally hit the […]

August 2023 What can I say about August?  It was a busy month but it was also my new normal.  I have a month of working 2 jobs under my belt now and I am kind of getting used to it.  I work 3 shifts per week at the bookstore in addition to my full-time […]

July 2023 July was a bit of a blur.  I feel like I was really busy but as I sit down to write this post, I can’t remember what I actually did.  I read as much as I could, did a few family things, and hung out with my dogs (and my husband).  I spent […]

June 2023 June was an incredibly busy month!  My dog, Stella, has her 2nd ACL surgery on June 1.  I took time off work until mid-June to take care of her and then my husband took a week off.  Did I mention that this dog is SPOILED?  She can’t be outside without a leash and […]

May 2023 May was quite the month.  My daughter graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education.  My husband and I flew to Detroit to visit family for a few days. We ended the month celebrating my niece and nephew’s 9th birthday.  I also spent most of the month dealing with Shingles which made things […]

April 2023 I feel like I was barely able to catch my breath during the month of April.  I started the month by returning to work after taking time off to take care of my dog after her ACL surgery at the end of March.  It took me most of the month to get caught […]
