Today I was chatting with a co-worker at the office (who I don’t see much) and was asking how she was doing and then I asked about her mom as I know her mom was elderly and had been having some h...


Whelp, it’s the last day of November. Last day of NoJoMo! At the end of these NJMs every year I always say I love updating every day, and it’s true. Sometimes it’s hard to find something to writ...


Hahah. My previous entry is so funny. It sounds like all I want to do is shop at Target, drink Starbucks and hang out at home with my dog. If truth be told, that’s pretty much it right now. I D...


I just stayed up past my bedtime on a school night, but it was worth it to see friends and walk through the park with the trees lit up tonight. Today was fun. Like every Sunday lately, I didn’t w...


I am connected via Instagram with a woman who is suffering from not one, but two different cancers simultaneously. Her doctors don’t have a plan on how to treat her just yet. But I watch her get ...


I am tired. Can’t get far into it tonight because I’m just so damn full and tired, but isn’t that what Thanksgiving is really all about? Being a glutton and taking it to the extreme? The fam is ...


Happy Thanksgiving! I will be hosting the actual feast tomorrow afternoon, but today mom and dad made it and we’ve had a nice day/evening, so it was a fine dress rehearsal for the day. Picked up ...


Our CEO sent an email to everyone in the company stating that we will be released at 2pm. I have one hour to go and I actually got ALL of my work completed before noon, so I’m going to tap out m...

NJM23: Grateful in These Foolish Things

I’m following the prompt today. Five things I’m grateful for: The obvious. I’m alive. I know this is repetitive in my journal, but I just can’t state it enough! I have survived yet another li...


Whelp. It was a Monday, but for some reason I felt better about it workwise. Didn’t let anything get to me. I think people are calmer right now due to it being Thanksgiving Week and all, and th...


I’m too wiped out to write a proper entry, sorry. It was a day of running around trying to figure out how to finish decorating this place. You’d never know I spent alllll weekend figuring out how...


I spent a good portion of today pulling out my Christmas decorations, moving furniture around, getting gifts ready to be wrapped (I think I need new wrapping paper this year), and generally just ...


Well, now I can say that I’m speaking out of both sides of my mouth. Last night I went to a get-together at Lovely’s house. She’d invited me to a Botox party. She’s been inviting me to these f...


Quick entry because I have a vendor coming to visit in a few minutes AND then we’re going to do Thanksgiving lunch for everyone here in the office. I told my therapist all of the things I was thi...


I’m still at the office. It’s 4:45 and I’m wiped. Figured I’d write my entry now because I have my virtual therapy tonight. I was texting with [Athena] a little while ago and she asked me how ...

NJM16: Polar in These Foolish Things

Well, the day is over. I’m nestled in bed; Martini’s at my feet; the Bachelorette is on in the background. Hee! My little Mini Pearl II needed an oil change today so we had to go over to the BMW...

NJM15: New Juju in These Foolish Things

Putting this out into the Universe: there’s a company here in town that I have been watching for a couple of years now. I slowed my roll on trying to get a job with them when I found out that I ...


Today was a good day. I prepped. I was successful with some preparations and not very successful with others. Got up early and walked the dog and then took her on our weekly Target trek. I live...


Today was a good Saturday. Good dog walk, putzing around the apartment, a little organizing and thinking about Christmas shopping, a trip to Lowe’s to get a planter and some potting soil and tha...


Friday night. I am in bed. It’s been a fucking week. Today I had to give a presentation to the licensing people. My boss and boss’s boss were in the meeting and we all had to give introductions ...

NJM11: 11/11 in These Foolish Things

11/11 is Singles Day in China. 1111. See all of those singles just standing there? For a while it was the day that the Chinese and I think some other countries would break the internet by purch...


Following the prompts again today. Wine Wednesday - Do you like wine? What’s your favorite kind - or, if you don’t, what do you like to drink (if you drink at all)? Do I like WINE?! What kind of...


Watching the Bachelorette while I tap out an Update on Various. Don’t judge. I’m multitasking! The Treehouse: Looks like I will be hosting Thanksgiving at the Treehouse this year! I’m excited ...


Well, here’s an interesting twist of events. I found out this morning that Maria’s friend Giorigio is coming to town from Italy and he’s bringing a friend. They will be here over the holidays a...


It feels like days since I’ve written an entry because I wrote so early yesterday and now I’m writing late-ish today. I don’t feel like writing right now, but I will because I said I would. I go...
