In which I get guilt-tripped by a house mouse.
This week it's all about the follow-up: Now, look. I know the "Inside" list looks bad. But look on the bright side! I already bought the batteries, the furnace filters, and the weather stripping. I just haven't actually installed any of them yet. Details. I'll schedule the furnace service on my next paycheck, and I tried to … Continue reading All the Things
On the last Wednesday of the month, I write about a project I've been putting off even though it's ridiculously easy. Today's post is . . . different.
