Grocery Shopping: The Struggle
A couple weeks ago, I got fed up with shopping at Aldi. It seemed that everything I needed to buy from there was about to expire and would expire within a day or so—well before we’d actually use it, or use all of it. I have bought mostly bag lettuce from Al...

Doing the Best I Can: March Updates
It's been a while since I posted an update for you guys, so while I have some free time (and by "free time" I mean waiting for a response so I can actually start working on a project), I thought I'd do a little writing here. First, I know you are all dying ...

The Mold Saga Continues
Over the weekend I discovered mold growing on my ivy plant. Yes, the very plant I brought into my home to help eliminate the mold (in the air at least) started growing mold on it. Perhaps that’s why after the first few days in our apartment it started to dr...

February Recap
Copper and I walked 125-ish miles this month! That’s 20-ish more than January! (Remember, my app isn’t 100% accurate, so it might be more.) I can’t believe how much we walked! And March is off to a good start as well (thanks mostly to the nice weather).  As...

Solving My Insomnia--For Now at Least
I think I may have finally solved my sleep problem, or I’ve at least made improvements. After we moved (and possibly even shortly before we moved), our brand new bed, which was purchased and delivered in late October, started creaking/squeaking. I couldn’t ...

Soul-Crushing Allergies
For those of you who didn't know, I'm allergic to latex (it would probably be easier to make a list of things I'm not  allergic to at this point). A friend in nursing school recently posted on Facebook that if you have a latex allergy, there are certain foo...

January Recap: 100 Miles and Beyond
Copper and I surpassed 100 miles walked last Saturday! In total, we probably walked closer to 105, and probably surpassed it before Saturday since my app never seems to be accurate. Either way, 100 miles in one month is probably the most I've ever walked an...

The Road to Sustainability
I've been slacking a little with this blog lately. But I've been busy, working my butt off trying to find myself a job, and not just any job but the  job. The job where I get to use my writing and editing skills daily. The job where there's room for me to l...
