My personality type is INFP, or Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving. While most of that makes a lot of . . . → Read More: Born Disorganized
This title brought to you by the half a bag of fritos that I plowed down this afternoon. Usually I put a bit into a bowl and bring them up to my computer, to limit my intake. Not today. *Sigh*.
I mean to write more blog posts. I come up with some wonderful ideas, . . . → Read More: All That And A Bag Of Chips I Shouldn’t Have Eaten
Life took me away from cleaning for a bit in order to prepare for the first in-person sales from our craft business.
