Hi Y’all! I’m in North Carolina at the furniture show and I’m tucked in my hotel room bed about to fall asleep immediately! I want to write but I am exhausted. It’s been a cool day and I hung wi...


Gotta get up by 4am to prep for my 6:45am flight to the furniture show tomorrow. Packing for this meant that I’m partially packed for the Grand Canyon Birthday Adventure on Friday. Now all I go...


After getting my hair cut into my razor sharp bob collarbone length, I went to an event for work today and it was fun but very, very long and I can’t believe we had to stay there so long - but we...


I don’t feel like breaking the writing streak for October and I know I’m going to be busy for the rest of the day into evening and tonight, so I’ll just tap out a quickie now before my meetings b...


I’m too tired to write much of anything. It’s been the day of vaccines. First thing this morning, I took Martini to get her Lepto and Bordatella vaccines updated. Of course, the Lepto knocks ...


…and not really for fun reasons at that! It’s been a busy, busy, BUSY day! In fact, I think today’s been the busiest since my injury and I’m still feeling pretty darn good. That’s quite excitin...


Okay, I looooovvvveee my new phone, but it does take a little getting used to. I don’t yet know how to operate the new camera functions. Three lenses in the back? Why? I know it’s for cool fu...


So…did we celebrate Columbus Day or not? I don’t think I’ve ever “celebrated” it. I’ve always had to work on this holiday and I don’t even remember having the day off as a kid in school. But t...


This weekend was truly the weekend of brunching. It’s been everything. I’ve enjoyed the hell out of it. Today I brunched with Best Bud. We wined and dined and had a lovely, lovely time sitting...

Wiped. in These Foolish Things

Meeting with vendor is ovah! Wheeeew. It was good and tough, just like I thought it would be. And it was the kind of meeting that brings much more work to follow. But now I have my tasks cut o...


Happy Hump Day! It’s a super busy day at work today and I’m getting pretty frantic thinking about the big day tomorrow with my vendor. I’m prepping for a review of all of their samples with them...


I don’t know, you guys. I’ve had the bare minimal communication with the Big Wild Rancher and he finally asked how I was doing (instead of simply talking about himself and his racing) and then me...

Autumn Arrival in These Foolish Things

Hey everyone. Today is the first day that feels like Fall is actually going to arrive! After days and days of excessively hot weather, [my city] woke to cool temps. Of course, I went all out wi...


Came on here after getting home from my folks. Was gonna write an entry, but fell dead asleep! I guess today took a toll. The visit was actually wonderful, and I cherish my parents more and mor...


That title is not a euphemism. I’m making some healthy cookies to take to my mom and dad’s place tomorrow. Dad may or may not reject them, but at least I am trying. I’m going to their place tom...

Welcome to October - my birthday month! Of course, it’s my favorite month of the year and I have loads of things going on, starting with tonight! I’ve been invited to a dinner hosted by Maria’s ...


What a Friday night! It took me the whole weekend to recover! How do I even set up this story? I tried to go back in my PB to see if I could find the not-so-humble beginnings, but it seems I ne...

Home. in These Foolish Things

Safe and sound! What a good trip. But I’m tired now. I’m at the office today but not feeling it. Yeah, there are things to do and I have gotten to most of them already, but I want to do a litt...

Up in the Air in These Foolish Things
