Chik-fil-A, Part 2

I let this stew for a while before deciding whether or not to post it. I had wonderful arguments with myself pro and con before finally deciding to tackle it tongue in cheek and poke fun at some stupidity. So here we are. Chik-fil-A, Part 2 – things people say (spelling and grammar intact).

And now, a message about gun control…

I realize it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything even remotely resembling a “Gun Chick Thang”… There has just been too little time. But then I read the news about the Supreme Court’s ruling. What’s incredibly funny to me – and sad – is that this is actually a major decision from the…

From Fab to Fat and Back Again!

Without going into repetitive details, I’ve had some issues accepting myself as less than svelte. All my life, I was a shapely little thing, dammit… I’m finally making some choices that are, I believe, the right, the healthy, the smart choices to make – and I’m making them for ME… And of course, I’m blogging…

The beat goes on… The beat goes on

And it’s time for me to roll on out of here. Wow. I’ve been with this company for years now – in fact, that was one of the reasons I accepted the job here, there were so many employees who were “long term” and I was looking for a career, not just a job. Meanwhile,…

Taking a walk down memory lane… Blog style

Yeah… So, here I sit, up to my elbows in alligators (someone kindly remind me to look up the meaning/origin of that charming saying) and I’m trying to keep my promise to myself. That one where I said I would keep my blog all fresh and sparkly clean, full of cool updated posts by Yours…

Job description – if it needs doing, do it and do it well.

Part of leaving any job is getting things ready for the next person who sits in your chair. In my case, that person is going to have some big shoes to fill. It’s not that I think that highly of myself, it’s just that over the years, a lot of odd jobs have fallen into…

Organized shmorganized… Thingy Thursday @ CHBM

More madness courtesy of CHBM and Better Today – The idea is to blog about my best organizational or home decorating tips. Huh. This should be easy, right? After all, I’m the reformed Messy who embraced the Messies Anonymous method, gained control (sort of) of the insanity that ensued around my former abode and later…

The Work Files – Where is my desk?

Once again, I am left to wonder… Witness – the usual state of my desk. There are the usual items of a cluttered in basket, notepad, sticky note reminders and other evidence of work in progress. Witness my desk on a recent workday when a pile of stuff to get shipped out got dumped upon…
