Friday Feelz!

This summarizes the feeling this morning. Earlier this week we had a bit of snow (1-2 inches maybe) and it closed schools and delayed work. Now, they are forecasting snow for the weekend -snow in a place that usually gets rain, so has limited resources to take care of roads and all. (I think I…

Friday Feelz

This week has been a crazy one. Three full, I mean FULL days at a work conference. Yesterday, I spent the day getting the house pulled together for our walk through with the state today. Last night we spent 3hrs with foster training. And today I get to spend the day finishing things in the…

Captive’s Log – The Release

(I thought I had published this two days ago…..but discovered this morning that I had not. Screw it – I’ll publish it in case there is someone curious how my time in captivity ended……even if it is two days late!) I rolled over and thought, “wow, this is good sleep”, then opened my eyes and…

Captive’s Log – Day 2

Five hours of sleep. I think that is the optimistic estimate for how much sleep I got last night. After writing the blog post, doing a couple of crossword puzzles, then playing some mind numbing game to force my brain to shut off, it finally stopped churning through the material from the day. Only for…

Captive’s Log – Day 1

I really shouldn’t be so snarky with the title, but I feel like I am a captive for the next two days at a strategic planning session. But I have decided I get to be snarky because, well, I just spent from 2:30-10:45pm in a the first day session. This, after working a few hours…

Friday Feelz

I’m feeling unsettled this morning. I’m waiting for my neighbors at work to make a comment about my inability to stand still or even close to still. (I work at a standing desk.) I just can’t focus on anything – though the donut I ate against my better judgement is sitting in my gut not…

Friday Feelz

I know many people are posting this poem to honor Mary Oliver’s passing. This is one that has always spoken to me. It reminds me of my dad honestly. After he had his heart attack, he went on this journey of examining his life that lead him to believe all he had done needed to…

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…
