Lets talk numbers

All over the various blogs I follow and forums I read there is chat about end-of-month numbers. As I just finished my self-employment invoicing, I have my own set of significant numbers to share Work. At my part-time job, I logged 116 hours for the month and billed 152 hours for my self-employment gig, bringing…

August challenge and “farmer’s walks”

Trainer J is this endless source of information on all things gym, exercise, fitness. This morning I was having a discussion with an associate about our mornings at the gym. She belongs to another club chain and typically goes a couple mornings each week. We were discussing equipment and pondering how clubs decide which machines…

Training #67 – Losing my religion

Monday morning, training with J. I must confess I was not feeling much like it this morning, kind of low energy funked out, just not wanting to be at the gym and pushing through to some other level. But what I know is that no matter how crappy or cranky I feel walking into the…

Sunglasses FOUND!

Interrupting today's training recap to report that while, yes, I am kind of cracking under the wedding pressure deadlines and questions and commitments, today the very nice¬†woman at the lighting store called to say she found my sunglasses and has them at the store. Yahoo! I'll fetch them at lunch and strike another item on…

Shopping, dropping, not again soon-ing

Yesterday was all about wedding shopping. For M. And it was not fun for either of us, but since G and K's wedding is now less than 2 weeks away, it had to be done. As in most things, M and I have wildly different tastes. But in this case as well, we had wildly…

The Honor System

A lot of places I frequent have these boxes labeled "candy for charity." The idea is you put in your quarter or whatever amount and take a piece of the candy in the box. While I typically see them on counters manned and lightly supervised by a business employee, occasionally the boxes¬†are left somewhere else…

Losing my stuff

Titling this post "Losing my shit" would have been more appropriate, but I am trying to be considerate of those who are not quite as salty as I am in my language habits. Most of the time, I think I am pretty rational and organized. Then again, most of the time I seem to spend…

Training #66 – Too much Heaven

Thursday morning, training with J. And it was some new things, remix of things I already know, and in its way completely knocked my socks off. You're tired of me writing this, but DAMN I love training days! So today was a review/revamp of the chest and back routine. We did: A1. DB Bench Press…

Before my regularly scheduled Thursday post …

My office is f**king FREEZING! The last few days, our thermostat has been stuck on 65. We move it up to a more reasonable 74, and it's still blowing snowflakes. Call building maintenance, they try pointless somethings and it's still blowing snowflakes. Finally, they figure out there's something broken (ya think?) and order up the…

Structure, flexibility, change

My part-time gig with the law firm is wonderful. I feel as if my skills, experience, and personality traits are well-matched with the firm's owners and staff and have been told directly and in reviews that they feel the same way toward me. If there is an issue, it is simply that they would could…
