Wappy Hour

Afternoon blahs!  They hit me like a ton of bricks right around 2:30pm every day.  Can’t keep my eye lids open….. drifting, drifting,… damn it I need to walk around to keep from falling asleep. Would anyone notice if I slipped into the first aid room for a 20 min power nap?  This wouldn’t be happening…

Staycation 

Any time off work is cause for celebration!  What have I done so far you ask?   Porch guitar sessions    Wine tours with my mama    Home renos         Afternoon lazies    School work, shopping, work outs and naps.  I know, I know — party girl 😜 Relaxation and catch up was on…

Slow Down You Talk TOO Fast

I need to get this important message out to the world as soon as possible.  So readers, if you know anyone like I’m about to explain, please help me spread the word and stop the madness. To all people who leave voicemails: Thank you for taking time to slowly explain the reason for your call….

Thou Shalt Not Plan

My TV is rarely on, but when it is, I’m either watching Triple D or Criminal Minds.  I’ve seen every episode of Criminal Minds at least 5 or 6 times; possibly more, I don’t keep track.  The shows about a group of FBI agents that make up the BAU (Behaviour Analysis Unit).  The BAU is task with hunting down…

The Daily Grind — Facebook Style

Time has been on my mind lately.  More specifically, the passing of time.  This is undoubtably part of getting older.  Time becomes more precious when you realize that half your life is already over.  Regrettably, I find myself becoming more and more worried about wasting time. One of the guys from work would answer to that…

Smarty Pants

When I registered my domain on WordPress, I was asked to enter in a user name.   I’m not good at coming up with clever names; I named my dog Olivia, so that tells you something. I tried to come up with a name that fit the content of my blog; however, I didn’t have a clear vision of what I was…

Dear Rejection

Dear Rejection, It was very nice seeing you this weekend, and I hope you enjoyed your stay.  I hope you don’t mind my bluntness when I say “you scare me.” Please don’t take that the wrong way, as I know you mean well.  However, whenever there’s a chance of seeing you, I second guess myself….

What Would It Be Like If…

Sometimes you just have to wonder what if. Five days a week I sit at my desk and listen to the flicker of the fluorescent lights above me, as I count the minutes down before quitting time.  I wade through endless emails, type reports, and sit through long drawn-out meetings.  This is my life as…

A Little Bit Of Crazy

Why is it when part of your life gets hectic, the other parts follow suit?  My job is like a roller coaster ride: I can go weeks with nothing too exciting happen, and then next thing you know I’m up to my A*S in work place incidents, layoffs, terminations, hiring projects, policy implementations etc.  One minute,…

I’d Rather Be Blogging

WORK is really getting in the way of my blogging time.  How am I ever going to get to all the posts I want to read with work taking up so much of my time.  Last year was insanely busy for me, but so far this year my office has been pretty quit.  In HR…

An Office With a View

The view from my office is nothing short of spectacular.  I work in a building that sits atop the city, which is surrounded by miles of mountains and sky.  It’s amazing I get any thing done with these floor-to-ceiling windows that make up the whole two floors of the building.  I remember the day of my…

Forty and No Kids

“You don’t know what you are missing.”  As a childless woman, these are words you will hear many times over your lifetime.   Well-meaning parents feel it’s their duty to reform the childless people of the world.  They assume that if you only knew what it was like, you would change your mind and reproduce like…
