January 2023 in Books

Boy, I really hope that January 2023 doesn’t set a precedence for how the rest of 2023 will be. Sure, I was in Mexico for week one [fantastic, got a great tan] but a week after getting back, my husband got the flu! Thankfully, I didn’t get his full blown sickness – it felt moreContinue reading “January 2023 in Books”

Why do I always think that December is going to be chill? Most of my December weekends were fully booked by mid-November. Not to mention that at work, this is the busiest time to of the year.

Friday Favorites: Christmas Albums

I used to work in retail. During that time, I would rather impale myself on a rusty pipe [but remember that time I almost did that on accident?] than listen to Christmas music voluntarily. I also worked at a location where the Store Manager would only allow us to listen to The Chipmunks Christmas AlbumsContinue reading “Friday Favorites: Christmas Albums”
