An Enneagram? Sounds painful.

Last night, one of my very closest friends introduced me to the Enneagram (which is a fancy way of saying that she's just cleared my schedule and given me my next time suck). I love personality quizzes, categorizations, or as Wikipedia tells me "models of human psyche." It should come as no surprise to anyone … Continue reading An Enneagram? Sounds painful.

Holiday Treats Come Early

One of my coworkers walked past my desk today with two boxes on her way to the lunch room. "There's pie," she said as she passed by. Pumpkin and apple. I have no idea what it was for but it looked delicious. And then our conference rooms were overbooked and not appropriately scheduled which meant … Continue reading Holiday Treats Come Early

Life has been a little hectic lately.

Life has been a little hectic lately. In the last 7 weeks or so, I have worked in inordinate amount of overtime. Do you still call it overtime when you're a salaried employee? Not just a few late nights here and there or a few early meetings but multiple days' worth of time.

There's something so simple about drawing hard lines about what you will and won't put into your body. I started this particular "Year of … Continue reading Whole30 Update: Day 21

The Family Teeter Totter

How do people balance married life with child(ren)? I've been going at it for three years now and I don't think I'm very good at it. They say practice makes perfect but everyone in my family keeps growing and changing. The second I think I'm on to something, I run into a wall or trip … Continue reading The Family Teeter Totter

A Mile A Day: Day 25-28

I always say that anyone can do anything* for 30 days but 30 days really is a long time to do the same thing and continue finding interest in it. Or at least continue to find interest writing about it. I imagine it's the same for reading so I'm going to start condensing the last … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 25-28
