Giving, receiving, weird funks of the holiday season

Like most people, I hate the commercialism of the holiday season. A lot of people I know with younger children have curbed their gifting-free-for-all spirit and are pursuing saner something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read type guidelines. But I'm a mom with my own spending issues. I have very fond memories…

Winding down, gearing up

Been a very long and crowded weekend. Friday and night we attended a client/friend's birthday party. Where we thought for sure we would be home early - parties are typically not our thing - but a serendipitous turn of events and face-to-face introductions with people I have interacted with via email and phone and we…

Having a great day … on Saturday

This was actually supposed to be posted on Saturday around noon, but for whatever reason my blog was not allowing me to post until today (Sunday). I took M's car over to the smog shop today to get it smogged and ready for title change. For whatever reason, I tend to be the one taking…

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

Today started out as wonky, confusing weekend, but not at all bad or unpleasant - just me trying to catch up on unusual happenings the last few days. So Thursday I mentioned having weird shoulder and neck pain and suspecting my office desk set-up being the culprit. By the time I was finishing that post…

One of my original side gig clients has an urgent project for me to complete this weekend. Dropped into my lap last night, my report due to be in his hands by 9 a.m. on Monday morning. Other than a somewhat abbreviated practice this morning, I have done little other than work on this project last…

A blissfully uneventful Friday

It has been a fabulous day. Work was quiet - just me and one project manager and the PM's little dog. Phone were relatively silent as well, and I spend most of the day catching up on several months of filing. Yep, I was filing. And it was absolutely glorious. After yesterday with the drama…

ahhh Saturday

It's been a pretty lazy morning around here. M was off on a 10 mile run with friends and since i did not go to sleep until late, I was soundly sleeping until my alarm went off at 8 a.m. Yep, even on weekends I have an alarm that sounds at 8. So I have…
