We bought fabric! 😛

  • Try to get posts scheduled ahead of time 

I think I’m gonna say yes because I was definitely better at that! Although I didn’t do that for this one (this weekend had been so crazy, I’ve hardly gotten any computer time) I have for a few! 😀

  • Finish reading/light editing my novel

I haven’t finished it, but I’ve made progress!
