So remember a few weeks back when I said I was interviewing for a new job at my company? I found out this morning that they decided to go with someone else. Not the end of the world, but still pretty disappointing. My career is one area of my life where I've been extremely confident … Continue reading You win some, you lose some
Yesterday after work I took a group fitness class at a new studio that's opening up a few minutes away from my office. It was a tough and intense workout that I really enjoyed. I took the class with a work friend, which was a lot of fun and also brought out my competitive nature, … Continue reading I don’t need to earn my dinner
Continuing the theme of reliving summers from yesteryear, I revisited another old favorite summer pastime this week - spending the day at an amusement park. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio, which is an hour away from Cedar Point*, an amusement park like any other you've ever been to, but on steroids. CP was America's Rock & Roller Coast … Continue reading Just like being a kid again?
This past weekend saw me reuniting with some of my oldest friends to relive my teen years, and it was awesome. Coming of age in the grunge era, my high school friends and I were obsessed with Pearl Jam. During the summer of 2000, when we were all 19, we had a blast following them … Continue reading All Those Yesterdays
Heidi has been begging to write a guest post (or maybe she was just begging for my breakfast. I don't know), so I'm letting her take over the blog today. She wanted you guys to see what an average day is like for her. Because you just have no idea how much she packs into a … Continue reading Guest Post: A Day in the Life
Hang on, hear me out. As annoying as it was that I had to implode my blog, move to a new domain and start over, I'm glad it happened because it's really helped to rekindle my love for having a blog that I actually write on regularly. On the old blog, things were getting stale since, … Continue reading I kinda hate “blogging”
We have a bit of a bee problem. Yes, bees. One day last week we noticed one bee buzzing around our blinds. Okay, NBD. Terry hit it with the fly swatter and neither of us gave it a second thought. Until another bee appeared. And another. And... you know where this is going. By Friday, … Continue reading Buzzed
Well, I was definitely happy to report that my blogging mojo has returned after a very long slump. But unfortunately that doesn't mean I actually have time to blog! For the first time this year - seriously, all of 2016 - work finally slowed down. For about a minute. Sigh. I kid, I had a … Continue reading Swamped
Ever since "the incident" that took down my old blog earlier this week, my mind has been racing with ideas for different things to write about. Apparently a faked-death and real, actual fresh start (not just a rename, but a move to a completely different domain, etc.) was just what I needed to get my … Continue reading Takeaways
Oh blogosphere, you didn’t think I could up and leave you completely, did you? I have too much to write about, especially after all the crap that went down this week. Let me fill you in, since the details were a little sketchy in my last post (and I know not everyone saw the posts … Continue reading I’m baaaaaaack!
