Cook Something
Daunting, I know, but this is doable. If you have never so much as boiled an egg, you will do it today. If you want to kick it up a notch, try this: Either dust off your old copy of The Joy of Cooking, or hit up FoodNetwork.com for a quick recipe that sounds good to you. Keep reading »

Fix Something
One of the most satisfying things a woman can do is fix something. It doesn’t take long, but the payoff is huge. You don’t have to build an armoire; just make something that you own work better than it used to. If you have a squeaky front door, buy a can of the wonder product that is WD-40 (over 2,000 uses!) and follow the directions on the packaging.

Do you ever feel like as you mature into adulthood, you are just becoming more and more like the person you already were when you were 5 and had older male imaginary friends named Diaper Clip and Cheese Spreader?

Sign Up For A Class
Even if the last time you were in an extracurricular class was when you were six years old and clutching the barre at Miss Lillycrumpet’s School of Ballet, you will sign up for something today. Feel like knocking someone out? Boxing lessons. Crave solitude? Sewing (you don’t even have to have your own machine). Keep reading »

Plan A Lady Party
Check your calendar and pick a date three weeks to a month from now, because you’re in no shape to do large-scale entertaining. Yet. What you can do, though, is plan a small party on that day for a few female friends. Keep reading »
