Happy holidays! What a strange feeling, to have a few days of downtime (whatever that means). Since even before starting my own business, I can’t remember the last time I actually had an entire day off. Don’t get me wrong, I love my flexible work schedule, but the reality is I really do end up working a little bit every day of the week. To embrace several days of no work … a staycation if you will … is heavenly.
And more than a little stressful. Yikes! Continue reading
Well, at least it tasted good.
To attempt to accomplish my goals of saving money and eating healthier, I’ve taken it upon myself to make, rather than buy, many food items. Yes, I am trying my hand at cooking! (God help me, and all of those who get to eat my concoctions. But I digress.).
For example, the vegan staple: hummus. Continue reading
Hi! Did you miss me?
Apparently I need to add another item to my 101 things to do … update “Life After Normal” on a much more regular basis. Oy vey.
Next week I’ll let you know all the reasons about why I’ve been MIA, preoccupied, stressed out of my mind, happy, sad, scattered, centered and /or otherwise atypically overwhelmed in my typically overwhelmed existence.
What can I say, sometimes life happens … whether we want/need/expect it to or not.
Until next week … enjoy your weekend!
This is my 101st post! Woohoo! To mark this milestone, I plan to not only listen to the Depeche Mode album of the same name, but I also joined the Day Zero Project. According to the website, “Day Zero is a place to record your goals, discover new challenges, and gain motivation to achieve them.” In other words, I created a list of 101 things I want to do in the next 1,001 days. Because as we already know, I am clearly insane. (many thanks to my friend Stoopmama for the inspiration! The Day Zero Project inspiration, not the insanity inspiration. I get that all on my own, thankyouverymuch.). Continue reading
Ah, exercise. How I love to loathe you. Now I’m not talking about the physical activities that I conveniently consider part of my new fabulous lifestyle, such as yoga. I’m talking the specific training to reach a specific goal … and the necessary conditioning that is needed to improve performance.
That part blows. Continue reading
As I divulged in Adventures in Pharmaceuticals, there is a ridiculously inappropriate and outspoken (but absolutely hilarious) pharmacist who staffs the drug store where I pick up my (multiple) prescriptions. I have given her the name CPL: Crazy Pharmacy Lady. I love her, and I must learn her schedule so I only pick up my meds when she is there. Because she is slightly insane, and that is awesome.
