clear the list december 2019

Whelp, my October ‘resolutions’ didn’t last long, so I’ve decided to go back to a tried-and-true method of keeping myself on track: Clear the List! November’s been a busy month, so I’m hoping to slow down in December, but I’m already thinking ahead to what 2020 might bring…
