One millennial’s attempt to question authority, remain (happily) married, be pennywise and organized, and prep for the future.

Week 13 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. I celebrated the completion of a five-year-long cross stitching project this week! I got to eat Mexican food! (The Man hates it, so it's a rare treat for me.) And I started playing computer games with The Man and his friends--and I'm not that bad at it. I'

Week 12 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. Spring is here! πŸ‘πŸ™†β€β™€οΈ And so are outside chores! πŸ‘ŽπŸ™…β€β™€οΈ At least we are hiring out our big project this year: painting a two-story house is more than we want to tackle. We got 10 bids over the last year, so we feel like we picked the

It's done! I finished cross stitching this piece after five years of work (on and off). This piece was a souvenir from Mt. Vernon when we visited Washington D.C. in 2014. The flags depicted are the first U.S. flag and George Washington's personal flag (blue). While this seems like a simple pattern--and it is--the simplicity

Week 11 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. I had professionals come in to deep clean my carpet this week. It was so weird to be at home and have someone else cleaning something for me. I could very easily get used to that! . Bouquet image from @freepik. . #bujo #bujobeauty #bujoinspire #bujocommuni

Week 9 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. We got even more snow this week! It feels like winter actually happened now. Around this time each year, some people start moaning and groaning about how they need sunshine already. Seriously, one day of that blinding brightness, and I am good with another

Week 8 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. What a week of frustration! I had to go back three times to get my brand new glasses readjusted. It was a huge pain (literally!), and I finally resorted to making a few adjustments myself (shh, don't tell), but they fit now. And then there were taxes... whi

Week 7 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. Apparently there was a holiday this week of some kind. I did not give or receive a darn thing. We have never been into Valentine's Day, though the chocolate sales are nice. I splurged on one 75% dark chocolate mint bar for myself. Self-love is a thing on V-

Week 5 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. This week started off with just two or three chores and ballooned into a full week of work without any effort. How does that happen? How do things just suddenly need attention? Pretty sure it's all the cat's fault. No other explanation. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ . Cozy

Week 4 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. Not much going on this time of year, but that's just fine with me. I spend my winter months restocking the freezer, doing inside chores, and enjoying quiet time. It beats the heck out of sitting at a desk being miserable, that's for sure! #ilovemyjob . Moun

The Man and I have been loving this chicken, kale, and sweet potato hash this winter. I change it up with chicken sausage sometimes, or we use a different variety of sweet potato or kale. One pan dinner for the win! . #eatrealfood #realfood #glutenfree #mediterraneandiet #nutrition #mealprep #easymealprep #healthydinner #cl

Week 3 in my 2019 #housewife #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner.

Week 2 in my 2019 #digitalbulletjournal #digitalplanner. Had a quiet week. I enjoy the peaceful weeks of mid-winter after the holiday craziness, and this week was not at all disappointing in that regard. I am also loving this new digital format.

And so it begins: week 1 in my 2019 #digitalbulletjournal #planner.

Week 52 in my #housewife #bulletjournal #planner. I got my weekly count wrong on paper a couple weeks ago. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ It has been a long year. Fun 2018 statistics: I made my bed 359 times. πŸ› I assembled 212 lunches for my husband, an average of four per week. 🍞 I made the dishwasher do the dirty work 267 times. πŸ
