I've really enjoyed reading everyone's New Year's posts. I find it inspiring to see what everyone else is planning to do in the new year and how they plan on doing it. I've gotten so many wonderful ideas that I keep tweaking and improving my o... Read more

As 2009 draws to a close, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the last 12 months. I've been reading a lot of Sparkers' thoughtful looks back, and I find it very interesting. Some people choose to focus on the negative - all of the things t... Read more

Long week, no blogs, huh? I really have no excuse except that I was disorganized for the holiday. I've been logging my food and have even managed to get some exercise in this week. Hopefully it will pay off. One of my co-workers gave me ... Read more

Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If you have to eat a bucket of frogs, make sure you eat the biggest one first." In terms of my work life, I've always taken that to mean that when you have a lot of difficult work tasks to complete, attack the l... Read more

Any boost of energy that I got from the extra hour of sleep last Sunday has long since faded away. To put it simply, I'm pooped. I'm physically and emotionally worn out. My nerves are short and my attitude is poor. I think it started when t... Read more

Today All Souls Day is celebrated in the Roman Catholic faith. It is a day we set aside to remember and pray for our family members and loved ones who have died. I'd been thinking about doing a little memorial post to my mother during October ... Read more
