Moving Is a Mess

Dear Home-Ec 101, I just moved. There are boxes to the left of me, boxes to the right and here I am, stuck in the middle with you. The house is pretty much a wreck and will be for some time until I can budget for the repairs. I don’t know where to find the energy.…

Sunday Confessional with a Splash of Margarita

Heather says: This isn’t particularly Home Ec related, but sometimes life is more than the chores that make it easier. As many of you know, last year was incredibly difficult.

Monday Morning Confessional, I Have Jury Duty

Heather says: File this one under, “Sometimes I really wish I had a normal 9-5 job so I could keep the days of the week straight.” You know how on Sundays the chore chart reminds everyone to check their schedules? I forgot. This means I completely spaced, until five minutes ago, that I have jury…

Sunday Confessional 8/21/2011

Heather says: Every so often I like to remind Home-Ec 101 readers that life isn’t magazine and snapshot perfect. It’s really easy, when you live your life semi-publicly on the web to only present the best and gloss over the less perfect moments of life. I work from home, in addition to running this site,…

Sunday Confessional May 29, 2011

Heather says: Sometimes I have to think of what I want to share. You see, there is a fine line between being authentic and admitting I screw up and celebrating mediocrity.

Sunday Confessional May 1, 2011

Heather says: It has been a while since I ran this series on Home-Ec 101. I started the Sunday Confessional a few years ago as a way for us to come to grips that our lives aren’t magazine perfect, a place to embrace our foibles and get over ourselves. We’re all human; yes, even that…

Join the Sunday Confessional 9/26/2010

Heather says: One would think I must be a highly organized person and one would be slightly off-base. Once my short-term memory starts to go, I’m going to be in big trouble. I have a hook near a door for my car keys, this usually works. Except when I forget to hang them. My wallet?…
