Yesterday I received a text message that sent my head into a spin and started my heart palpitating. It read: “What are they paying you? I want you to run {Anonymous business}”. It was from one of the area managers of the company I us... Read more
Stuff is Fun Again
Thursday, January 29, 2015      3 comments

That is a terribly vague title for a blog but it very much sums up how I feel right now. Last night my husband and I were watching TV after a busy day of work, doggies, bike rides and making dinner. I found myself flipping through channels... Read more

Is Happiness Worth $80,000?
Wednesday, January 21, 2015      6 comments

No. It's worth more. $80,000 is the cut in pay that I took to leave my old job and end the cycle of madness that I had subjected myself to for nearly 6 years. Was it worth it? Yup. Would it be worth more? Yup. Happiness is price... Read more

So the last week or so has been tough. Real tough. Like really, really, really tough. Just trying to emphasize that. I went over my calories today because for the first time since I re-started back in April I actually felt, well, a little de... Read more
