It’s time for a break

April 23, 2014


I am still learning that it is important to take periodic breaks from whatever you are doing. I experience first hand the benefits of this with my exercise. When I take a rest day or a rest week, I come back to my workouts stronger and more determined than ever. That being said, I still […]

How to watch the Super Bowl

February 5, 2014


So the quintessential American past time is upon us. I am not sure how I feel about the fact that Americans are most associated with sports, but I’ll let that go for now. I don’t like football. There I said it. What is the purpose of giant men (can we say 300 pounds of muscle?) […]

My 2013 blogging in review

January 15, 2014


The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. I have you, all my dear readers, to thank for my best year yet! I look forward to continuing discussions with you in 2014! I had visitors from 106 countries total! My favorite part of this whole blogging thing is meeting folks […]

Any New Year’s Resolutions?

January 1, 2014


Normally, I view resolutions as things to be broken. Then you feel guilty and all out of sorts. Who needs that? But, in my quest to be more in charge of my destiny, I’ve decided to be more accountable. What better way than to publicly declare my intentions? So here goes, my New Year’s Resolutions. […]

Social media rant

December 4, 2013


Do you love social media? Or do you hate it? Right now, I’m leaning more towards the hate side. Hate is a strong word, maybe more like annoyed. Blogging is my exception. I love it because I’ve met so many wonderful people from all around the world. I haven’t traveled abroad much, so it’s especially […]

There is always a way

November 20, 2013


I love walking; it’s my favorite form of exercise. You can do it anywhere and with minimal equipment. You can also do it at work and not get too sweaty. I used to love to take a walk in the afternoons, after sitting hunched over my computer all day. It was a great way to […]

If only . . .

October 30, 2013


How many times have you uttered the phrase, “if only . . .” When I was working, I would say, “if only I had more time so that I could exercise more and eat healthier.” Now that I’m caring for my Mom and doing volunteer work, I say, “if only I had more work to […]

Washing windows – la, la, la

October 16, 2013


I’m not one for cleaning. Sure, I like things neat, but I’d much rather be kayaking or meditating or doing anything other than cleaning. I even try to trick myself by saying that cleaning burns calories, so it’s good. My dear Mom is a very traditional person. She believes in a thorough Spring and Fall […]

The endless circle of marketing

October 9, 2013


If you’ve read any of my posts, you know that I love going to conferences and learning new things. I will be going to the Inbound Marketing Summit Boston in a few weeks. As I went through the somewhat onerous registration process, I got to thinking that my rant would make a good blog post. […]

The tale of two closets

September 25, 2013


Although I like things neat, I’m not a clean freak, like my dear husband, who I affectionately call, “Mr. Ajax.”  I remember when we were dating, I invited him over to my apartment for dinner.  At the time, I had a long commute, on top of working 70 hours a week at a demanding job. […]
