Update All of the Things

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and there really is a lot going on in my life. I figured I owed it to you to share some updates.  Where to begin… Kittens!  I has them!  Mama Cats had her babies just one week after I rescued her (and her siblings) from their hellish situation. …

And Then This Happened

Today at the New Job…(It shall be called the New Job until it is no longer new.  Which will be when I get used to it all and these sorts of things stop completely shocking me.) My boss was struggling with creating a flyer/poster, and I was kinda not doing much, plus I love doing…

So How’s the New Job?

Last week was my first week at my new job, and I know everyone wants details about how it went.  (Because you are fascinated by me and my life, right?  No?  Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway.) Basically the new job is awesome.  I really like the people, and I feel like I’m respected and my…

I don’t like my job, and I don’t think I’m gonna go anymore.

When I started this blog, I went back and forth in my mind over whether to make it anonymous, thus allowing me to be brutally honest about anything and everything happening in my life, or whether to attach my real name and identifying details, and therefore have to be a bit more careful about what…

Semantics and Bunnies

I’m still here!  I’m still walking!  I’m still painting my nails!  I’m just not posting about it much, sadly.  Work has gotten insanely busy.  I’ve been tired when I’m off, and I’m slacking on my blogging.  I decided that needed to end tonight, even if it meant posting at 11:00. My little ticker over there…

Bringing Your Whole Self

Lately my attention has been drawn to this concept of “bringing your whole self to work.”  It started, I think, with a particularly challenging day, at the end of which, I found myself frustrated with my not being “more professional.”  (The fact that I can’t even remember what exactly I did, likely means it wasn’t that…

PJF Trail for Life

Can I just tell you that this project is what I’m living for right now?  It is.  I cannot wait each night to crawl into bed and read my book.  I think about it during the day.  I’m almost at that halfway point where part of you is dying to read more and more and…

Watch Out Meghan Trainor

Yesterday I was visiting a preschool program, and the kids were playing outside.  They are generally a great group, and this day was no exception.  Kids building with blocks (yes, outside!), kids playing on the monkey bars, kids drawing with sidewalk chalk.  I chatted with the teachers a bit and modeled some problem solving between…

Who You Callin’ Grandma?!

Somewhere in the last year or so, children stopped accidentally calling me “Mom” and started accidentally calling me “Grandma.”  It happened again today.  I’m not pleased with this turn of events. I drove back to my office pondering what exactly it is about me that caused this shift.  Is it the extra weight I’ve put…

No Roly-polies

This week I was visiting a preschool class, and they were playing outside.  A little boy came up to me and earnestly asked me to find him a “pulley pulley.”  I was lost.  I told him maybe he should ask his teacher to help him.  (Always a wise move, but basically I had no clue…
