I did a little cleaning this morning and it felt good. My house has gotten out of order since I'm recovering from a back injury that limited my movements quite a bit, especially when it comes to cleaning. IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY! I pride myself on... Read more

Starting fresh

I love this time of year. I always spend some time sorting through clothes, summer and otherwise, and seeing what needs to be boxed or even donated, just like I did as a child getting ready for the start of a new school year. Well I've been back... Read more
You never realize how closely people listen to you.
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      3 comments

I'm often surprised when people mention things to me and I think, how did they know that or what are they referring to. My boss is a good one for that, especially around Christmas, my birthday or Administrative Assistants day. They often look fo... Read more

Well I did it! I completed my first timed 5k today. I completed a 5k a few years back but it wasn't timed and I walked with others so it wasn't the same. I was also probably about 20 pounds lighter with that one too. Today it was all about me. I... Read more

Today was just horrible at work. I was off yesterday and it never fails that when I take a day off there's so much work to be done when I return. Every time I come back I think "why did I take time off"? I was so stressed out that I told myself ... Read more
