Yippee do

You know what’s better than a long-term departmental restructure hanging over the team for months on end? Read more of this post


You can skip this one if it’s going to weird you out. I totally understand.

About two years ago, I started having occasional hot flashes. (Seriously, if you don’t want to stick around for the rest of this, I understand.) Read more of this post

It’s beginning to look a lot like chocolate

Easily irked

There’s going to be a headache later, I betcha.

Not because of impending weather (always a possibility). Not because I feel anything but fine, fine, fine, physically.

There’s going to be a headache, because that’s usually what happens when I’m this easily irked.

I know about “Judge Not…” but she’s making it impossible
