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

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…
