Today’s victory

We have recently moved. And when I say "recently," please understand that this has been a process that started in February, capped with nearly a month of transitional housing. All along the way, people have asked that dreaded question: "Are you excited?" They have bright, wide eyes and good intentions. They are usually smiling. And... Continue Reading →

Self-care, yo.

Today I received some really good news. Like, turn-the-corner good news. And in celebration, I went out and got a pedicure. Pedicure was not the only option in this kind of case. Celebrations can include all kinds of things. Foods. Drinks. Sweets. You get the drift. But right now, I'm working on my self from... Continue Reading →

Pop

It's the sound you never, ever want to hear. I was exercising at home, running with high knees, when, POP went my calf. It was audible, and hit me like a sucker punch in the gut. Joints go pop, knees go pop, muscles should certainly not go pop. But there I was, sitting on the... Continue Reading →

And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

Here’s the deal

This goes out to anyone who's ever read my stuff on Facebook, who's enjoyed my wry humor, who likes to interact on this wide jungle gym we call social media. I write this, tongue firmly in cheek, because I have a burning desire to lay groundwork in a completely irrelevant medium, to people who may or... Continue Reading →

Financial Health: Awareness

I know. I'm sorry. Finances are a part of reality, y'all. Today will be short, because it's Friday. (Today will also be without a picture, as I'm blogging on my phone with my Bluetooth keyboard, plugged into an electrical jack at a friend's house. Viva la technology! Viva la blogger!) Regardless of your leanings, we... Continue Reading →
