Online Pattern

When I first started online dating I loved being able to read about all these different people, even the ones that were not in my realm of interest.

1-2-3 Breathe

Today I found out that in addition to my boss leaving (and a new person coming in to replace him), HIS boss is also going to be leaving. I have worked with her for over 5 years. I have worked with him for 3.5 years. Breathe. I *really* like working for them both. What’s hard…

Before 2013

I’m not so much into resolutions. I like to make them but I don’t do so well with the follow through, so instead of waiting until January 1, 2013 to make some resolutions I decided to get some things tidied up around here before the end of the year. 1. Check into the status of…

Quiet please

Sometimes I just need quiet. Really please quiet. Today my boss asked me if I had a few minutes to catch up on some stuff. He asks me this all the time. Then he told me that he was leaving. He is hands down the best manager I have ever reported to. One of he…

One Holiday at a Time Please

I love this time of year. Well mostly I do. I don’t mind that the weather is colder; but I am not such a fan of the darkness so early. I love the holidays, but one at a time PLEASE! We have gone right from the mind numbing political advertisement season, into the over the…
