I took time off, re-centered my head and while I may not post as much as super bloggers... I am still here.

2. $5/person/week grocery challenge- succeeded until about July. Will be going back to our skimpy grocery budget so I am sure you will here more about this again.

3. Homestead skill a month challenge- This is my favorite resolution and have carried it over to this year.
