Hm. Not 100% sure how that went. Many times first interviews are a little iffy, but I still feel confident. Though, I will say I was a bit disappointed with something. I was on video and the ...


Ugh. Have you ever felt like everything was falling apart at work? Like, everybody is in a foul mood and stressed out because they can’t get their shit together (like…NOBODY) and then they lose...


Happy Sunday. Thought I’d give you an update while I have the Emmy’s playing in the background, my dog at the foot of my bed, and a bubbly water to sip while I do. General: I’m generally feel...


I am working with a new factory in Vietnam and was asked to send something to Mr. Phock in Ho Chi Minh City. Out of curiosity, I looked up how to pronounce his name. This is how my whole Tuesda...

Weekend Recap-ish in These Foolish Things

Good Monday morning. It hasn’t started exactly to plan, but oh well, I’m here at the office and getting stuff done. Will need to bust it today because tomorrow is completely booked up with face...

September 11th in These Foolish Things

I wrote a sad and selfish entry a while ago. I was whining about all kinds of things that I actually have control over. Just the general feeling sorry for myself stuff. I thought about it afte...


So…I knew this would happen. I was furloughed for nine weeks due to Covid, right? And then I was called back to work. Great! We all said. Now I have my job back and everything is hunky dory, ...


I turned down a date tonight. So what am I doing at 8:45 on a Saturday night? Lounging in bed in jammie pants and a tank top with a bowl of popcorn, a sleeve of Starburst, a can of bubbly water ...

Not Quite Normal in These Foolish Things

Geez. I’ve gotten so busy at work that it almost feels like pre-Covid normal times. Things that are feeling “normal”…and yet not quite: Got stuck in a 30-minute traffic jam on the way to the ...

RAD: Doc T. in These Foolish Things

The first of two dates I had on Saturday. This one was for coffee on Saturday morning: Name: Doc T. Introduction Platform: Hinge. He’d just gotten on last Saturday and I think I was the fir...


Wow. Where to even begin? I come here to write, read, leave notes and always get distracted. So…where I left off. Last weekend was lovely. In fact, so lovely that I was able to see my friend,...

Outta Here. in These Foolish Things

Made it to the end of Friday. Today I was happy I was in the office because the guy who supports me (not my official assistant since Boss took all of my staff away) didn’t anticipate something a...


Okay, now today was better than Tuesday where there was nearly ZERO other people in the office. Today, teams of people came by and I got to say hello to a few of them…but then they left! This i...


Well, not really “back to work” but “back to the office”. I don’t know why this was such a big deal, but I felt like I needed this for my sanity. Here’s what’s happening while Covid still rages ...

Final Friday in These Foolish Things

It’s my final day of WFH for however long. I’m still in my workout gear as I did 30 minutes of HIIT after taking the dog for a walk and dropping her off at daycare. I am now thinking that I’m g...

Enjoying in These Foolish Things

I’m enjoying my last week of WFH for the foreseeable future. Unless things get really bad again with Covid (which, Fall? Winter? Who knows?), I’m going back to the office for work starting Monda...

Belonging! in These Foolish Things

Good morning, PB friends! It truly feels like it’s going to be a good day today. Do you know why? I hung out with my old friend (and former boss and mentor), M last night and we drank skinny m...


Tooth was extracted yesterday right around this time. It went off without a hitch, except for that my blood pressure reading was uncomfortably high. I understand why my pressure would have been...

11 Updates in These Foolish Things

I decided to go ahead and get the tooth implant (see previous entry for my drama about the whole thing), and today is the extraction of what’s left of my current tooth that’s broken down way un...


Y’all. One of my crowns popped off over the weekend and I thought it would be suuuuper easy for the dentist to just pop it back in and glue it in place. So first thing this morning I went to th...


I don’t know why, but I somehow landed on a basketball game as I crawled into bed with my laptop playing YouTube TV. Was gonna watch something mindless while I wound down from the day. Anyway, ...

Hi. I went to the office yesterday and was incredibly productive. Today I’m working from home again and, while I love being able to get a wonderful workout in and make my lunch while watching m...


Wow. Boss has turned back into his usual dick self. It has actually been going on since about week 2 of my return, so…approaching a month now. But he’s gotten especially dicky in the last week....
