A Very Ramshackle Glam Holiday

Well, THIS is fun!

Duckbill - the personal assistant service I've been going on and on about these past few months - has started offering "bundles": Basically, groups of related tasks that you can request to have completed all at once.

You can sign up for a free month of the service using code RAMSHACKLE, and request my The Very Ramshackle Glam Holiday bundle here.

I want to be all blissed-out in front of a fireplace, feeling cozy and joyful and safe, but it's 70 degrees outside and the world is falling apart around our ears and there's so much to do every day that fireplace bliss doesn't feel like a solid use of my time, and...
