Whole45: Week 3

Organizational Insights
This is where the new insight comes in. In Eleanor's room, there is so much empty storage space, and as a result, the entire apartment has many of her things in it. When I was able to sort and put away, I discovered a whole empty hope chest and bookshelf. O...

So it turned out that May was my anxious month. Last year it didn't hit until June, in preparation for Eleanor's first birthday party, but this year I had to gear up for my mother-in-law's descent upon us at the beginning of June. So my resolution to organi...

Easy Weekday Dinner: Stromboli
Although this was my first time making it all on my own, stromboli is a meal that I grew up eating. In a family of 10, we used dough loafs to feed everyone. In my family, I had success using dough rolls for individual servings. I was worried that I would ma...

First Week in Lent
The first week of Lent is almost over, and I hope it went well for you. It went pretty well for me. Every year, I make specific resolutions, but sometimes they don't quite work out, so I always leave myself open to new ones. Besides, if something that I pla...

Lent, Resolutions, Catching Up, and Free Download
My poor car I haven't been able to write a blog post for a few weeks, due to unforeseen circumstances. The first 2 weeks Eleanor and I got colds, and while thankfully hers didn't progress into anything worse, I developed asthmatic bronchitis and had to be o...
