I'm getting a late start and will be playing catch-up through next weekend... but as I keep an eye on the assignments whizzing by, I can at least start prepping for them. Does anyone have a good suggestion for a green cleaner for painted wood floors? I haven't ever found even a conventional cleaner that I really care for; I've been sticking to Swiffer Wet pads and the like, but I've never been quite pleased with the results.

One of my cats is a determined salad eater, and I have yet to find a good floral workaround. Right now, there's not a surface in the house that he can't get to (okay, there is one tall cabinet, but I wouldn't see flowers if I put them up there), and after a near-death experience with him a few years back, I will not take chances. I think I will focus on safe house plants instead. I bought a ficus right before Christmas and I'm gonna count that for my first week. I may opt for some (safe) potted herbs later in the month -- I've been wanting to experiment with them inside, anyway.

I've been on my own for about 15 months. After my 12+ year relationship ended, I moved in with friends for eight months before making the jump to my own place. I was absolutely dreading being on my own, and there's plenty I miss about living with a partner (there's nothing like a hug to start and end the day). But it turns out I'm loving being on my own. I had plenty of freedom to be quirky and decorate as I pleased in the relationship, so that's not much different. But there are a few things I feel freer about. I love to sing, but am truly terrible at it, and have never been able to sing around people. Now that I'm on my own, I find myself singing around the house all the time, and it feels great. Never realized that was missing from my home life, but I'm grateful to have found this and other little treasures in my solo life.
