Reflecting on 2022

I'm going to say something that may come across as somewhat controversial. But I hope you'll stick with me... The last few years have been pretty rough, right? I mean, I remember this time last year thinking I wasn't ready for 2022 because I still hadn't recovered from the trauma of 2020. And now, here … Continue reading Reflecting on 2022


Another Day One

I started a new job today. I was going to end that first sentence with an exclamation point but I find I'm too tired at the moment to be excited about it. That doesn't mean my first day was a bad day. It was a very good day. It was just a very overwhelming day. … Continue reading Another Day One

One More Day

I only have one more day left in my current job. One more day and then next week begins a brand new adventure. No... that sounds more exciting than it is. It's a new job... not an adventure. I'm nervous and have no idea what I'm doing. But I'll learn. And I'd be lying if … Continue reading One More Day

I Did a Thing…

Not sure how much I can or should actually say at the moment. But I've been offered a new job and I have accepted said job. I've given my notice to my current employers and will begin my new position in a couple of weeks. I'm nervous and excited. It's an interesting mix of feelings. … Continue reading I Did a Thing…

Summoned to the Office

A little background... I don't typically work in our office. I'm out in the community with clients throughout the vast majority of my work day. For me to go into the office is a rare thing. It means I've got a meeting with my supervisor or a staff meeting or a client needs to meet … Continue reading Summoned to the Office

I’m Not Ready for This

Tomorrow is April 1. That means tomorrow begins the A to Z Challenge. I am truly unprepared for this thing. I said I would be writing some kind of short fiction every day based on random words beginning with each day's appropriate letter. Thus far, I've received words from friends and family for A through … Continue reading I’m Not Ready for This

Question of the Week #297

If you knew that devoting yourself to an all-consuming occupation--music, writing, acting, business, politics, or medicine--for 20 years would make you one of the best in the world at it, would you? If so, which would you choose? Absolutely, I would. And of those listed, I'd definitely go with writing. I already love to write … Continue reading Question of the Week #297


Because today is Chocolate Milkshake Day, our Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is Milkshake. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things!

No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…
