    happiness project monthly breakdown: files/finances (nov)

    November is the “Files/Finances” month in my Happiness Project. In 2013, 2014, and 2015, I’ve spent a LOT of time organizing my paper files, my computer files, my iTunes, my email, and more. We’ve written a will. I created health histories for me and the girls. I created academic files […]

    knitting: project 3 complete!
