Case of the sickies
Thursday, July 08, 2010      6 comments

Feeling much better now --- but no gym and little movement for me today. I hope to be back to "normal" tomorrow. I was totally punked out this a.m. and even stayed home from work and a meeting. This too shall pass. Hope everyone is staying cool!... Read more

Alarm went off at 4:50am. I squished my head into the pillow. I really wanted that sleep, but there was a good possibility I would lay there and not be able to sleep anyway. I rolled half way over and prayed, "Jesus, let me get up and go, but I ... Read more

I don't think I'll have any trouble sucking down water today. Geez, it is hot and steamy today. I decided that I am going to try to leave my office when I want to eat. I did bring my lunch as I most often do, but I always eat at my desk. I get i... Read more

Sometimes, I am all for censorship. Not the kind where you're burning books because you disagree with the doctrine, but the kind where the description is superfluous to the story. Last night I was working and a patron told one of my staff that "... Read more

One of my very best attributes is that I rarely give up on people. OK, sometimes this does not always work out the way I plan, but on a day like today, when a kid I have nurtured and mentored and tried really hard to help, shows me that he is li... Read more

Remember that movie with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere? One of my favorite lines from the movie is when she defiantly tells him, " I say who, I say where, I say how much." Ok, well, I am taking that same tact for myself. I get to make the decis... Read more

I am not my spark best today, not by a long shot. I walked a smidge and have little excuse for not doing more. It is the perfect day outside!!! I have been hiding in my cave for the better part of the day. My office is tucked away under a s... Read more
54 Weeks

In 54 weeks, I'll be climbing on the back of my hubby's Harley, going to Bike Week in Gettysburg, PA. This is one of those dreams that he's had. This gives me time to work on my plan of action and get to a place where I feel comfortable on the b... Read more

Started talking to a colleague today that I have seen in passing many times. She wanted to know where I was from since she thinks I am very friendly. She couldn't believe that I am from the beautiful garden state (that's right bucko, NJ) since w... Read more

I got an email yesterday that blew my mind. Twenty years ago, I worked for a company that I loved dearly. My job included answering phones to perform a very mundane task from a centralized location. It meant I talked to the same people from 350 ... Read more

The client told me that if I could not find parking out in front of their building, that there was also some spots in the back. I told her not to worry, that I would be walking. It is hot out there. The sun is shining. It's the first day of summ... Read more
Things My Dad Taught Me
Sunday, June 20, 2010      9 comments

Most things I know about my Dad aren't because he told me. I saw them. I learned. My dad is not demonstrative, but he is a do-er. I have always said that. Nothing is more important that your integrity and character. Your word is all you hav... Read more

There are few things I love more in the world than Fridays. Woo hoo! TGIF! It puts me into an automatic good mood. (even when I have to work on Saturdays - like next week...I still feel pumped and alive. I stopped at a local coffee place... Read more
