✗- Make returns.

Additional Successes

• Printed images from Costco, now I can determine what further edits should be made and if I want to print in a larger size
• Justin got his hair cut, after almost 6 months of growing it out.
• I wore a face mask when I had to go out. I hated it. I decided I was better staying in.
• went through and got rid of a bunch of art supplies
• French pastries ftw! eclairs and croissants!
• contacted The Paris Photographer about rescheduling our photoshoot.

July Goals
– Make returns to Amazon
– Send Hannah a graduation card
– Watch weight. Walk more. Eat more veggies. Eat less sugar.
– send returns to Free People
– Finish going through clothes.

IWSG Question –– There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?

I can't say that I am too familiar with the writing industry in terms of getting published. 

What I would like to see is –

• More being published by minorities and women.
• Writers being brought on by companies rather than being paid per job. More stability as an author.
• Writers being paid a living wage for their work.

Your Turn

What would you suggest to make the writing industry (or any other industry) better? Do you feel people are taking advantage of?

Do you think covid-19 is exacerbating that?

my friend's voicemail "Darling Wife ... Don't worry. Darling Wife, I love you. Goodnight. … Hugs!" 😂 (inside joke)


Hawai'i and California. Ready to get back out and travel! Bring on the beach!


nothing much.

Anxious about:

My job. How much longer will I have one?

A particular acquaintance I've gotten close to. He won't claim we are friends, and I wonder if he will stay in my life.

Interested to Know:

I'm currently looking at potential make-up purchases. All of a sudden, I have an interest in my skincare routine!

Also, looking at informational books regarding one of my favorite topics! Photography!

Will we and should we travel during corona?

Free People Forever Your Girl Tee in blue from Macy's

• monitors and monitor stands for husband to use when working from home
• electric duster (for cleaning electronics - and let's be real! - everything else!)

Now on Day 87 with ? Days to Go:

• Justin has returned to work, 3 days before anticipated.
• 196 items listed on Poshmark; still at 12 items on ebay
