Inhale …….Exhale…..

To say the last 5 days have been like running a marathon at the pace of a sprinter would not be far from the truth. Between our oldest kid going back to college and the kid coming back to the house, I feel like there is not enough time in the day to do it…

Happy New Year!

I saw this last night and thought it was a great toast to start the new year off right! What can I say? I have always loved the Addams family – and the relationship between Morticia and Gomez? HOT! Anyway, Happy New Year! May the first day start off amazingly……and if not, remember – there…

Loud and Clear

"You aren’t your usual self – are you ok?" The short random instant message I got from someone on my team this morning. It took my by surprise because, well, I always like to think I keep my worlds separate. I keep work at work and home at home – and they don’t bleed into…

Friday Feelz

G posted on Facebook this meme today, and I think it summarizes my week nicely:  Last night, I had a frustrating conversation with my brother.  I needed someone to talk to – and in the situation, this was the best person…..or so I thought.  Pretty much I needed to vent – and I got a…

To Exhale

It seemed fitting that I saw this after I returned today:  I was clearly way past due for some good self care.  And I was WAY past due to have that time with SB.  Thankfully we were able to finally put something on the calendar for this past weekend.  Three days and three nights, sitting…

Vote and Other Stuff

First, let me start off the election day with something for you to read or listen to. I am a huge fan of Freakonomics. I took a class last year where I was required to read another one of their books in the series: Think Like a Freak – and I loved it. When I…

Migraine

I don’t get them often, but Sunday night through Monday night, I had a horrible migraine. It was funny because all day Sunday – after I returned from my 3-hr drive, I had people commenting – asking if I was OK.  “Oh yeah” I would say because I felt fine.  Little congested – small headache…
