Like that blinking light in your bathroom. Or the dead batteries in your doorbell. (I’m sharing my own silly examples below.) They may not be priorities, but now’s the time to tackle them.

Q&A With Sarah Knight (She Answers YOUR Questions)

Well I think it’s safe to say you’re all loving Sarah Knight and her books. 😉 When I posted my review of her new one just 2 weeks ago, you flooded the comment section with questions for her.

Fancy a review of “Get Your Shit Together”, Sarah Knight’s new book? Of course you do. The press release describes it as “giddily profane, immensely useful, and surprisingly powerful”. Bang-on, or bullshit?Pull up a pew, friend, and find out how I rated it on a scale of Die Hard 1 (classic) to Die Hard 5 (utterly forgettable and downright unforgivable.
