Shake-up

There was a big shake-up at my office last week which resulted in my boss stepping down from his position. He still works here (for now) but he will no longer be my boss. With all the excitement and stress of last week, I completely abandoned any and all self-care habits. I bought a medium size bag of peanut M&Ms…

What doesn’t motivate you?

A few months ago, I joined a fitness group sponsored by our county health department. We walked for 2 days a week and I loved it. It held me accountable and I knew that I would get in at least 2 days a week of a good solid workout. I think I only missed 3 days during the whole season…

The Case for Waterproof Mascara

This morning as I was packing my lunch to take with me to work, I heard the neighbor’s dog barking incessantly in my yard.

I didn’t realize it has been almost a month since my last post – wow, time sure flies when you’re dealing with summer camps and backed-up septic systems! We got new carpet installed in our house a couple of weeks ago and…

The Sad Grocery Store

I was running errands after work yesterday when my daughter texted me that she needed chocolate chips so she could make some cookies for a couple of special teachers at school. Since I was on that end of town, I decided to quickly stop at the sad grocery store to get the chocolate chips. Surely you know what I mean by the…
