Long Overdo Blog
Last week was like a nightmare. It was a task just to survive it all! My hearing on Wednesday was literally like a circus. Complete ridiculousness the ENTIRE time. I think I used EVERY objection I could possibly think of, and in the middle o... Read more
Headaches and Stress

Beat the Heat 5k AND August Crossfit Challenge
That's right. I did both this morning! What were we thinking??? Probably that its sad they fell on the same day but this is Allison's last crossfit challenge before she moves to her new assignment in NY. So our office headed out to the base ... Read more
Apparently, I'm a natural arguer.
So, Tuesday and Wednesday I spent ALL DAY in a mediation-arbitration hearing. Basically, you start out in mediation, and ultimately, if you can't come to an agreement, you move on to arbitration, and the arbitrator will make the final decision ... Read more
Deployment is back on..
Yes, it's true. Yesterday morning my boss sent me an email asking me to come to his office as soon as I was available. So vague, and I am thinking I am getting in trouble for not reviewing contracts fast enough. So I go down to his office, he... Read more

Well I was MIA almost the entire month of July so I have little to report by way of that month. I didn't weigh myself for a few weeks. I'm a little scared to also. Eating in VA was bad. I didn't have a refrigerator or microwave in my hotel s... Read more
my office looks like a bomb exploded in it :(
So I got back to AZ on Friday night and it was wonderful to be back, though the plane rides were pretty awful. Going from VA to Philly, I really thought our plane was going to go down. It was one of the worst flights turbulence wise I had ever... Read more
So after rushing around all morning yesterday to send my paperwork back for my deployment tasking, I got a call from my office last night that the tasking was pulled, so no deployment to GTMO for me. :(

Sorry I haven't been around much - I've been away in VA for work for about 1.5 weeks now - I have internet access but I haven't been taking advantage of it much. Been studying, catching up with friends, sleeping, etc. Anyway, I'm just popping ... Read more
In my purse you'll discover: my purse is really tiny - I don't feel the need to carry tons of stuff around. Usually it's just my wallet, my keys if I'm not using them, my cell phone, and some lip gloss.
My secret talent is: convincing peop... Read more

Woe is Knee
So, my knee has been bothering me for a few weeks now. I've kind of just been ignoring it. Deal with it and move on. Take some motrin. Use the biofreeze. Ice when necessary. But still get most of my workouts in when my work schedule allows... Read more
