It’s been 3 weeks now since I completed my 365 project. I miss the challenge and I don’t. On one hand, it was nice to have that extra pressure to make sure we did something more than just lounge around in pajamas (I mean, we did that a ton even when I was doing the […]


It’s been a busy, non-busy week. Which is to say, normal. Did some freezer-cooking on Monday, which means the girls watched roughly 900 hours of Max&Ruby while I chopped and mixed and marinated and baked and bagged several nights worth of dinners.
