Putting Goals into Play

I set up my 'Goals for 2013' page as a way to set some ideas down.  The next step is make them happen.  Over monthly brunch on Sunday, E remarked how she's tired of scarves, boots, and jackets.  She articulated what I felt lately.  My friend R smartly replied we just have to hang on … Continue reading Putting Goals into Play

A Holiday to Recover From My Holiday

My last day of work before Christmas break was December 21st.  I returned January 2.  In between family, friends, and holiday eating I felt like the 'break' was really a 'blink'.  (As in 'a blink of an eye.)  On Friday most people around the college remarked on feeling tired, while quite a few picked up … Continue reading A Holiday to Recover From My Holiday
