Friday Feelz

Combative…..or at least that’s how my immune system feels right now. There is a crud going around the office, and it has caught three of us so far. I would still be at home today if it weren’t for the fact I have an interview with a possible boss replacement today. Had he not flown…

The Pull.

I could feel their energy from across the room. I had paused in my photo taking to scan the room when I spotted them.  They were sitting together – alone – their bodies wrapped around each other.  Yeah, that was where I was feeling it coming from, was what I thought upon seeing them. I…

I honestly don’t know if I should laugh or cry about this week.  I don’t know if there is something in the air or what, but damn. Let me give you a run-down: After being encouraged to apply for the CIO position at work, I am not experienced enough. I’m good enough to back fill…

A day in the life in a dysfunctional department

+ The voodoo witch doctor of a chiropractor I see had another moment that left me shaking my head. After he is adjusting me, he starts asking my body stuff. It’s a weird thing he does that always puts me in the "oh here we go" head space. After going through a series of things…

Friday Feelz – Take 2

Why "Take 2"? Because honestly the first version was, I don’t know, not where I wanted to be really. Maybe the adjustment at the chiropractor also adjusted my attitude. Who knows. So, let me, instead of editing the old one – just take another stab at it. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m trying to not…
