The Butt-Ugly Bullet Journal Rides Again

  I’m in the process of setting up my bullet journal for the first three months of 2022. My regular readers already know that this is not the place I do art. You do you, but for me, this is an exercise in setting up an organizational plan that works for me, and for my
