Pantry Organization

Time for an update.  The pantry in our kitchen has a lot of square footage, but it’s not actually very useful.  The shelves are 2 feet deep, so items get pushed back and lost very easily.  My biggest concern with reorganizing was to make it easier to pull out a bunch of items at once, […]

Growth

In the last week, my hair has finally reached a state in which I can *just* barely pull it back into pigtails.  It looks ridiculous on a thirty year old woman, but I don’t care in the leastest. Yes, I’m growing it back out.  Sorry everyone who keeps telling me how great it looks – […]

Snippets from Last Week

NavyGuy and Tally Pup after he arrived home from work.  She’d prefer to be sitting next to a full food bowl, but she’ll take his lap as a close second.
