….so you know how sometimes you wipe your history off your computer (*ahem*those of you who stalk your ex’s on Facebook know what I mean)? Well, I recently did that and, for some reason, it chooses to wipe all my passwords off as well. So I’ve been trying to log onto here for about a week. Why wouldn’t I just reset my password? I’m too darn stubborn, that’s why.

But today, while shopping for goodies for my mom’s Mothers Day Basket (more on that when the day gets closer), I remembered my password. Standing in the middle of Marshalls, deciding between two items, it just hit me.

Honestly, I also haven’t been feeling like posting for awhile. A few weeks ago, I was ready to sit down & write, but then tragically the Boston Marathon bombings happened and my state was thrown into a whirlwind we’re still just getting out of. Even the town where I’m from, about ten minutes north of Boston, was hit hard. More than five people were injured just from our town, two of them brothers and one who I was friends with and graduated high school with. It’s been tough.

But I’m happy to say that I’m back. I have a few cute tutorials up my sleeve, as well as the daunting task of planting basil, spinach, peppers, strawberries (yikes), and brussel sprouts this spring. I’ve purchased potted strawberries and brussel sprouts and my mother received basil from a co-worker (she’s not a huge herb growing person like I am, so I’ve taken over the poor little basil plant). I’ve seeded yellow bell peppers, spinach, and sweet basil and am (im)patiently waiting for them to sprout. But with this, or should I say with the strawberry plant from hell, I’m also constructing a small chicken-wire plant protector. The tutorial I’ll hopefully have up within a week, as well as a little bit more a life update (I climbed a mountain…that happened) as well as another (bit more gleaming) outlook on the job market. I mean, who knew I’d get caught up in wanting to work for business journals? Not me.
