Post-divorce woes, refocusing, and time-fillers

Thursday, November 07, 2013      2 comments

It has been a long time. Rather than just make small talk, I will cut right down to what has been going on since I last blogged in April. A lot of drama and presently, a lot of uncomfortable calm. I filed for divorce in March and thing... Read more

Saturday, December 22, 2012      0 comments

I've been at my new job a total of two days and I think it's going to work out just fine. I won't be leaving any time soon. The work is easy, and extremely similar to my last job. I guess I just suffer from new job anxiety. I've also never worke... Read more

1) Eggnog lattes. Love 'em. Too bad they're like a billion calories... it's like drinking cheesecake and espresso! 2) EXTRA LARGE NAVEL ORANGES ARE IN SEASON! I think I love oranges more than I love eggnog lattes. Specifically, ex... Read more
