My name is Liz. I’m a married, working woman trying to survive an 8-5 desk job while decorating our first house on the cheap, writing, attempting to beat my waning metabolism into submission, and all the while weighing the pros and cons of procreation. It’s a big job, and I do it all with the help of Mabel, trusty schnauzer sidekick. It's her house. She's the boss.
