Together Again

Family portrait

I'm so happy to see this photo of my sister, Karen, my brother-in-law, Jason, and their daughter, Madeline. They're altogether again after 6 long months while Jason was in Iraq. Look how happy they are! Jason, welcome home and thank you for your service.

Not Bothered

May 4, 2011 - 4:40pm

It's funny how one person's stress level can affect everyone in the room. This is me trying not to be bothered, though it's a challenge. There's always more work than there is time; yet somehow it always gets done. Plus, I'm looking forward to dinner at The Standard in Nashville tonight with my very good friend, Ryan, and his lady friend.

It's raining in Nashville this morning. Big, heavy drops of water. I got soaked walking into the office. It doesn't rain like this in Arizona.

Wet!

FOR FUN

April 22, 2011 - 9:06pm

Casia & Eric of Purple Nickel, photographers & designers in Tucson, are putting out a newsletter, The Loop. This little snippet at the end inspired me!

For Fun

The "most fun thing" I can think of is to sleep in until I wake up naturally. Then sitting on the couch and playing video games for hours. Then riding bikes around town at night with my friends like a teenager!

What's the most fun thing you can think of?

Time to be Thankful

April 21, 2011 - 11:54am

This week at work hasn't been good. I've inherited a situation that I can't do a whole lot to make better. Unfortunately, I've been doing a lot of complaining about it. This morning I woke up with a laundry list of complaints at the top of my mind. Not a great way to start the day.

It's time to turn this mood around and move on. I think one of the best ways to do that is to list things I'm thankful for, because I have so much.

  • Chris
  • A job
  • My health
  • Living in this country
  • Abundance of food
  • Clarity on what's really important in life
  • My sisters
  • My parents
  • Chris' parents
  • Good friends in Phoenix (who I'll get to hang out with tomorrow night!)
  • Going home tonight
  • Mac & Stewie
  • Sunny weather in Phoenix
  • I am loved

This is me this morning thinking about my wonderful husband and all the other things I'm thankful for. It's going to be a better day.
Me this morning

Ladies Weekend

April 19, 2011 - 3:44pm

While Chris was in Denver a couple weekends ago on a school trip, I took the opportunity to hang out with a few of my girlfriends.

  • Friday night Celeste and I had dinner at Pita Jungle then coffee at Jot Bot. We had a great time catching up and enjoying hanging out in downtown.
  • Saturday I attended Amanda's baby shower, hosted by Afi and Stephanie. It was a wonderful party and so nicely done. Since the party was in Mesa, on the way home, I swung by Kristen's house to hang out for a couple hours.
  • Sunday Angela and I went to the Heard Museum and had lunch at the Cafe. I consider Angela one of my good friends, but at lunch I learned a few new things about her.

I'm so thankful for wonderful women in my life!
