Ch-ch-ch-changes

This is a topic I’ll likely revisit, since I have kids and as you’ve probably noticed they make appearances in my current life outlook.  Kids today are way smarter than I even when I was a kid.  They are way more polished and professional.  Their resumes are terrifying and I’m just thrilled that I don’tContinue reading “Ch-ch-ch-changes”

In Defense of Resting

I’m a busy bee, mostly by necessity, some by nature.  I like being bored.  I remember in earlier days taking long naps on Saturdays and Sundays and then going to bed and sleeping all night.  If I did that now I’d be up by 2am.  As it is I’m up at 2am begging my brainContinue reading “In Defense of Resting”

Why Does It Cry?

My youngest and I are criers.  We cry at movies, at movie trailers, commercials, just about anything sweet that touches the heart.  The others in our house, not so much.  That doesn’t mean they’re cold hearted or anything just wired differently.  My oldest had colic as a baby.  That one would cry and cry untilContinue reading “Why Does It Cry?”

Habits

It’s easy to form a habit and hard to break it.  That’s true, in my opinion, depending on what the habit is.  Friday night martinis, very easy habit to form, very hard to break.  Getting up for bootcamp workout at 5am, very hard habit form, painfully easy to break.  There are statistics that say doingContinue reading “Habits”

Perfect

Driving along a throughway last night, where the well to do have set up residence, I was enjoying the marvel of Christmas lights. They passed by in an array of sparkles and colors.  It was a happy mark of the season. They were all beautiful.  Some were clearly professionally done, perfect, not a light outContinue reading “Perfect”

Good Tidings to You

It’s holiday season, for better or worse.  I do love it though it’s wildly stressful – the overeating, the overspending, the too much togetherness.  I’m a natural introvert.  I don’t mind being alone.  After awhile of being at a party or in a crowd I get tired, overwhelmed.  I’m not very good at listening toContinue reading “Good Tidings to You”

Crazy Love

I am the patron saint of a-hole rescue pets.  When my beloved Yorkadork died I was heartbroken.  I knew eventually I would get another dog but I didn’t know when.  Six months or so later I was ready.  I missed having a dog and instead of going to a breeder (however reputable) I was goingContinue reading “Crazy Love”

Go Live

OQ, IQ, QA. DEV, TEST, PROD.  Go live.  A lot of glory speak for – is it ready?  These are the phases of a tech project.  Do your gathering, develop, document (maybe, kidding, not really), test, release.  In the most simplified description, this is what you do when you make changes to a system orContinue reading “Go Live”

In Defense of Social Media

Someone who followed me on another social media platform had a terrible thing happen.  I don’t use any of my social media (sm) platforms for personal use outside of business.  Occasionally, a not so humble brag might go up from a proud mom or sad mom because we’ve hit a milestone.  But there are noContinue reading “In Defense of Social Media”

Metaphysics

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (heretofore known as Zen) was a favorite book of mine through my late university early adult life.  I had my metaphysical guru hippy Namaste phase of life.  Didn’t we all?  No we didn’t I know.  I have a friend who’s never once questioned their staunch Republican outlook.  ItContinue reading “Metaphysics”
