Christmas Hangover

Today has been such a blur. Yes, I'm back and work but it's been such a daze. I worked from my home office today, and my caretaker picked my son up around 10:35 am. So I had solid morning time with my son today, and administrative catch up time for work.

Seriously though...who wants to hear from a sales person on the day after Christmas? So I took lunch around noon, then tried to follow up with obtaining paperwork my company needs to get some accounts finalized this week. Notice the word...tried...in that last sentence. :)

Today feels so hazy...not that the real reason for the season wasn't my focus this week, but after days of music, lights, sugar, and crazy running around....I'm pooped and ready for a vacation. I'm sure I represent 99.9% of all working moms out there today!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families, and you're all looking forward to 2008! What resolutions are you planning?

Here is my number one challenge to myself:
#1---start a work out regimen...not to lose weight, as I'm a thin girl...but to take better care of my body for my self and my future. I want to make sure I'm fit for my future self and my son, so that he's not left to take care of me in a debilitated state. I want to be that spry 90 year old that still tickin'. I need to MAKE myself exercise to help my cardiovascular, skeletal, and mental state.

Okay now that I've eaten all the chocolate fudge in the house, my next step is to start my way out of my Christmas hangover into a moderate workout. I will chart my process here to make sure I stick with it!

Voting is like a PBJ

So, yesterday was voting day for many offices like County Clerk and Congress.   I always want to educate myself on the many issues and campaign trailblazers so I can make my voice count.  Voting is our God-given right which wasn't even acknowledged by our nation until the women's suffrage movement.  Many of our great - great grandmothers met, marched, and went on strike to strive for the right to vote.
When I hear anyone I come in contact with say that due the fact that they don't like anyone on the ballot they're not going to vote - it blows my mind!  We are blessed with that privilege!  And even if you don't like anyone, to not vote is still casting a vote because your voice isn't heard.  
Think of it like this:   What if there was only a choice between peanut butter or jelly - and the popular vote would bring to light what we're allowed to eat.   If you say, 'Well, I don't like either, so it doesn't matter!'  Then you choose not to vote.…

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …
