Since You’ve Been Gone

I can breathe for the first time...Just kidding. After about a year's absence I kinda just have to start over here. Here are the major highlights: I started a new job! 🙂 Our dog died. 😦 I restarted and then quit grad school. Again. 😦 I've gained about 20 pounds. 😦 One out of four... Continue Reading →

the place

Sometimes you're in the middle of folding laundry and are watching Abstract: The Art of Design on Netflix at the same time and thinking about how you've been in this really weird frustrating place for the past several days. It's a place you find yourself over and over again, probably once every couple of months... Continue Reading →

2016 so far

...has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad's store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities. It's been a stressful time for him but I think things are finally settling down and falling into place. Hubs had some big/positive... Continue Reading →

the nothing that turned into a post

I think of a jillion things to write about here during the day or when I'm in the shower or otherwise not at the keyboard. Then when I sit down to write, my mind goes blank and all I can think of is what I ate for lunch or what I did at work today.... Continue Reading →

A Stuart Smalley moment

I fell asleep at 7:30 with the kiddo, and just woke up after much tossing and turning at 10:30 and put her in her own bed. I would have just let her stay but I noticed a work email on my phone and needed to log on to email to check something. Plus, this kid... Continue Reading →

The work-week ended on a pretty positive note. The two meetings giving me ants in mah pants both turned out well enough. I went to an information session for Doctors Without Borders on Thursday. That was eye-opening and a great perspective check. They do such amazing work and shared many photos and stories from different... Continue Reading →

Wednesday, 11/05/14

When in doubt, use today's date in lieu of a clever blog post title. Today was much better, attention span wise. I got some things done that I'd been putting off and all was good. I have a couple of big meetings tomorrow that I'm antsy about but nothing I can't handle I'm sure. Confidence... Continue Reading →

Today be like…

"So, what do you do?" This question always trips me up. What I "do" is a bit complicated and hard to explain and even after my poor attempts I usually get blank stares. If The Accountant is with me after I've stumbled through a long and rambling explanation to someone, he'll say, "so what do... Continue Reading →

stress and therapists who text

Today was super stressful. Lots to do and my head just wasn't in it. My brain was not working at all and I was struggling with concepts that should have been relatively simple. My boss probably thinks I'm a total doofus. Oh well. I powered through anyway and managed to get all the things done... Continue Reading →

week numero uno

So, I've been at the new gig for a week now. I'm gonna be honest and say that the jury is still out as to whether I made the right move or not. But I know I can't make that call based on one week so we'll see what time brings. The main issue this... Continue Reading →

new chapter

I received the official job offer letter today and it's all ready to sign and send back in the morning. Monday will be my first day and I'm pretty excited. The location is as good as it gets in the heart of a happening area of town, above retail space and right across from my... Continue Reading →

Hello, I’m Awesome

The job search continues. I had a bit of a surprise today. Due to an HR paperwork snafu, my position is not officially eliminated for an additional 5 weeks from the date I was originally told. While this gives me a nice cushion, for various personal reasons, I don't want to have to use it.... Continue Reading →

ants in my pants dance

I'm antsy tonight. And now I'm antsy with that Dora the Explorer song stuck in my head. Fabulous. Its not really a bad kind of antsy though. I'm just sort of in this weird space in my brain with the job thing and wondering where I'm going to end up and how the course of... Continue Reading →

mish mash

Whew, it's only Saturday afternoon and this weekend has exhausted me already. In all good ways though. On the job search front...I applied for what looks like an amazing position and got a very positive response the next afternoon. The HR representative said they were interested in talking to me about it and she sent... Continue Reading →

I lost my job today

Yes, you read that right. This was not unexpected, given the state of our government funding situation and other circumstances, but as much as I have been preparing for this day in my brain, it is still somewhat of a shock and a huge mental adjustment now that it is a confirmed reality. Hubs has... Continue Reading →

re-entry plus randoms

Back to work today after what feels like a zillion days off. Productivity was negligible but I considered it a win that I even got there on time. Its the little things sometimes. My brain is all over the place which has never been unusual but it's especially bad here lately. I'll do better tomorrow.... Continue Reading →

trumping tiffany’s

So, today....the first day of 2013. Quiet day with kiddo and The Accountant, for the most part. I got a nice run/walk in this morning before the rain, kiddo and I went to Target for miscellany and then to Jersey Mike's for sandwiches. I went to a movie by myself. The movie was pretty bad...

snippets

What are those nuts called that are shaped like kidneys? I like those. And peanuts. Peanuts are my favorite. Almonds I will tolerate but they don't really do it for me. I just ate this and it was good. I had a turkey sandwich, baked Lays and an apple for lunch. Exciting noms no? Stuff... Continue Reading →

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor's best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur... Continue Reading →

back to it

Today was my first day back at work in what seems like ages. The holidays were great (minus that whole foot incident) but they seemed to drag on forever. I was actually quite glad to come back to work today. Weird for me, but good. I'm in the throes of planning and marketing an event... Continue Reading →
