I’m about to run out the door to meet a guy I know from the last time I was unemployed (back in 2009, I was FIRED from my beloved and highly coveted job due to a broken heart…long story, but it w...


Well, had a conversation with the HR person. It was only a 15-minute conversation. I don’t know if she really knows this business and how it works - she’s been in the role since November. It ju...


Hi. Struggling today. I’m over this coronapalooza. Make it stop, please. I seem to be in a funk of epic proportions and I need to get over it somehow. I just wish the world felt safe. I kno...


I never do these quiz things, but this one struck a chord with me for some reason (pun intended)… Using only song titles from one artist (and their remixes), cleverly answer these questions. You ...


The results are in, folks. I was surprised to have them back today, but early this morning I got the message that I had test results, so I quickly opened up my medical app. Lo and behold… Negat...


Today was a decent day. I started out with a workout at 5:30am and was taking the dog to daycare at 7am and then to the doctor’s office to get my Covid-19 antibody blood test. While I wasn’t su...


Here in the US we have been given some extra time to get our 2019 taxes done due to Covid19. I’m seriously blaming all of this bullshit on 2019, not 2020, okay? I mean, all of the seriously hor...


Every time I start writing an entry I do so with the intention of following up the next day to talk about how I’d followed through with my plans. I just had to go back to my last entry to see wh...


I’ts a gorgeous Saturday morning. I haven’t yet taken the dog on her walk, which means it’s first thing in the morning (not really - it’s already after 8:30am - but it’s kinda first thing for me...


Yesterday I was low, low, low. And then so many people came to my rescue - somehow the universe brought me comfort in the form of sweet notes here, texts there, and then…amazingly, at the very e...


Hey. It’s been a while. I am juuuuuust about over this situation. I think we are all kind of about to crack. I need to keep reminding myself not to be angry or jealous of the people I know who...


…or, hm. These guys need to get their shit together. After I told you guys about my sleuthing in the last entry, I sleuthed/stalked the hiring manager even more only to find out that she’s real...


So…tomorrow’s interview. It’s a Zoom interview, but now the headhunter tells me it’s just going to be by phone? I don’t really understand. I guess time will tell. I will be dressed and somewh...


This morning I got up early and did my workout, took the dog for a nice early walk, came back in and finished sending my tax info to my accountant and told him that I got laid off, filled out a c...

In Brief. in These Foolish Things

I’m trying my best to keep a stiff upper lip about being laid off. I mean, we’ve all seen the writing on the wall and I’ve talked about it soooooo many times here in PB, but honestly, in the mid...

Dishing in These Foolish Things

…or, some things I’ve learned while in self-isolation: I like to do my dishes by hand rather than do a load in the dishwasher. If I do them by hand as soon as I have finished making my meal, t...


Well, I’ve done it. I’ve made the dog so mad at me she won’t even look at me. I took her on her evening walk and she was NOT into it, so I had to “yank her chain” a bit to get her to move and uu...

My Hunch** in These Foolish Things

UPDATE: Sorry, all, I’m obviously having trouble communicating tonight! Clarifications noted in entry… Well, looks like my hunch about six feet apart not being far enough may have been right afte...


Okay. I do want to write after all. I have a lot of thoughts on this whole Corona situation. Now keep in mind that this list is going to be fluid and I’m definitely not saying that I’m correct...


I don’t know! I need to, but I don’t have the words right now. I used to always, always turn to writing my feelings when times got tough or interesting or boring or whatnot. But right at this ...


I can’t believe it’s been 5 days since I’ve written. So much and so little has happened. First of all, by the end of the workday on Wednesday, our CEO let us know that those of us who work in ...


Oh my gosh - the best part of last weekend and I forgot to tell you about it! So. Saturday morning. I was done with my nail appointment, right? And I had about an hour to blow before I needed t...


How to even document this? I guess I’ll just start right here. At the end of last work week, my company announced that it would be going to a 50/50 work from home schedule. What that means is t...


Bluh. The thrill of mini-vacay is over and it’s back to the grind, following up on the trade show stuff and generally feeling behind on everything. And even though a very well-known publicatio...
