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

I inherited my grandfather's stamp making business today. Was going through some of his old ledgers when I spotted these interesting stamp images. Through the early 1980s, Grandpa supplied @mtnhouse with their package identification stamps. Wonder if he got paid in food? Yum! #oregonfreezedry #mountainhouse #flashbackfriday

Week 6 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Was a quiet week overall, and I got some serious paperwork done. We are still caught up on our #bibleinayear plan, and I ate a ton of fruit and veg this week. #adulting Also #bingewatched the first three seasons of #madmen.

Week 5 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. "Patch wall holes:" I mounted my computer screens to the wall with an awesome dual screen mount. The first time was in a stud that didn't quite work for my setup (a smidge too close to a wall) The second time was not in a stud... and both monitors ripped out of the drywa

Week 4 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. Well, after not being able to turn away from the newsmedia circus, I did some chores this week. Non-political, necessary, rewarding chores. #sickofpolitics #getbacktowork #handwriting #housewifelife #freepik #bulletjournaling #bulletbinder #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournalcomm

Week 3 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. "I AM the person I was meant to become." Lots of little chores kept me hopping this week, but I did create over a dozen handmade cards, so there was fun too. #Thriving is harder than it sounds.

Week 2 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. I AM #worthy of great things in life. Finally had a break after months of crazy and was able to spend time getting this #bujo set up for the year.

Happy New Year! I've overhauled my bullet journal a bit for 2017. Here are some--okay, a LOT of--helpful pictures, thoughts, notes, hints, ideas, and suggestions for those that may be interested. First, a conundrum: I call my daily task organization device a "bullet journal." However, I don't fit the perfect bu

Week 1 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. A rough start to the year with Grandma's funeral, but I am thankful that I have such an amazing family, entirely because of the kind of people my grandparents were. Template layout this year is similar to last year, just tweaked some colors, line weights, and tracker location. Wi

Week 53 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Christmas happened... it's a happy blur in my rear-view mirror with everything else in my life right now. Designed Grandma's funeral programs this week: cathartic in a way and agony in another. Also had Grandma and Grandpa's great #newyearseve #tradition to uphold with a #cutthr

Week 52 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Grandma passed away on December 20. She often found her way into my journal as I did things for her or visited, and she was my blog's biggest fan. This was a hard week, and yet life still had to go on with Christmas coming... #2016sucked #gonebutnotforgotten #bujo #bujojunkies #

Week 51 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. After the family Christmas party wrapped, I got stuck in the pre-Christmas shopping frenzy. What appears calm here is actually just organized panic. And a lot of gift cards. #ihateshopping #bujo #bujojunkies #bujolove #bujocommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournaling #bulletjour

You don't realize how useful a pinky finger is until you injure it (no idea how, when, or where), and it feels like it is going to fall off.

Week 50 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. I got to be a real adult and host a family gathering! Just a few relatives braved a fall snow to visit. (It's not even #winter, #Oregon! #getittogether!)
