What if…. I won the Lottery

Every time the Powerball or Mega-Millions gets really high--you know, 300 million or so--I always go out and buy a ticket and spend roughly the next 24 hours or so fantasizing about what I might do with the money, if by some miracle I happened to win. I mean, honestly, if I really did win all… Continue reading What if…. I won the Lottery

Why do you get to make the rules?

The other day I ordered something off of Amazon. Since it was rather large I had it shipped to my apartment instead of delivered to the office because I wasn’t sure it would fit safely in my car. In the past I have never had a problem getting deliveries at home. However, my apartment complex… Continue reading Why do you get to make the rules?

Managing Business Relationships

For the past several years I have worked with the same auditor every time I traveled for work. After spending nearly a full week (5 days, breakfast to dinner) with this auditor every year--plus the  conversations leading up to and following the audits--it was easy to develop a personal realationship with him as well as a work one. While… Continue reading Managing Business Relationships

Do I Really Need Another Bookshelf?

I’ve been asking around, and it appears I have an “above average” number of bookshelves in my home. Currently I have 4 ACTUAL bookshelves as well as one of those 9-cube bookshelves that has 7/9 of the cubes full of books. This does not include the random books that are proudly displayed on top of… Continue reading Do I Really Need Another Bookshelf?

The Perils of the Toasted PB&J

One of the things I have been working on during my “Body Kindness” journey is listening to my body. Really listening. When I go to the grocery store, I browse around a bit, look at all the different options and think, “What do I want to eat this week?” or “What looks good?” Then I… Continue reading The Perils of the Toasted PB&J

Round 2 at the Airport

For my return flight home, the auditor had a flight at 2, and mine was scheduled for 7:45. I anticipated having some more time to kill at the airport, and this time I went into it with a bit of a plan. Hour One (12:30-1:30)     The first thing I did upon arrival to the airport (after… Continue reading Round 2 at the Airport

The First Book I Ever Read?

Do you remember the first book you ever read? I mean, the actual first one, and not one about watching Spot run? I do; and at an attempt for originality, it was The Frog Prince. I remember this book very specifically. We ordered it from Scholastic in a two-pack where the other book was “Harry… Continue reading The First Book I Ever Read?

5…4…3…2…1… Hours at the Airport

The other day I traveled to Boston for work. The flight itself was (amazingly) uneventful, but once I arrived to Logan Airport in Boston, I had FIVE hours to kill as I waited for the auditor’s flight to arrive. You might ask "What does one do for 5 hours at the Boston Logan International Airport?… Continue reading 5…4…3…2…1… Hours at the Airport
