Need an answered prayer?

JMJ Do you have a prayer request? A special need?  Well, I spent all night placing a live webcam to Lourdes, France on my website, including a little mailbox to their prayer request email.  All kinds of weird computer problems kept cropping up, and I kept offering them up as a prayer, which did help to keep me from being annoyed.  Then... This morning I got an email from a friend who told me that today is OUR LADY OF LOURDES FEAST DAY!  Wow.  I had no idea!  That is just so cool... ...more

Blog o sphere: Here We Come

Last year was full of firsts for us; our first babies; our first time entering the workforce as  mothers; our first resignations realizing that motherhood and the corporate world don’t always mix well, or the way you want; and the first time we started a business. It has been a tumultuous time!...more

Will the real {insert name here} please stand up?

Cameron Diaz gave me an "ah-ha" moment today. Trust me. No one is more shocked. I was listening to last week’s Real Time with Bill Maher podcast and already pleasantly surprised when BAM! She said something so deep, so enlightening that I almost had to pull over. She was speaking about how the public can love you one moment and hate you the next... "It's like a relationship," Diaz claimed, "they just want you to stay there because they've arranged it somewhere in their head to identify who they are by liking who you are..." ...more

I can definitely identify with what Diaz was saying. I'm a "late bloomer" and learning more ...more

Is Your Colleague a Jerk or Just Different?

Let's face it, we've all worked with one. Someone who drives us so insane because they don't think like we do. It's like Felix & Unger of the Odd Couple do The Office.  Makes you want to scream Jerk!! on the top of your lungs.  Yet, is that person really being a jerk or do they just fall somewhere else on the cognitive continuum than you do? ...more

Thanks for the comments...

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Frugalista Chic

Ahh... the holidays are upon us... Images of sugar plums dancing in our heads while dreaming if Santa Claus will be providing us with treats (or a big fat lump of coal) under our Christmas trees. Who am I kidding?! That is what I want.. those images on the books I read to my son at bedtime. ...more

I love the holiday drinks. I splurge on Starbucks too. That is actually one of my favorite ...more

Workplace Differences: Gen Y Beat Up By Gen X?

Is it just because Gen Y entered the workforce, or is there another reason this topic of generational differences in the workplace has bubbled to the top of the conversation?  Truthfully, I never gave it any thought before I heard Jennifer Gleeson Blue and Maria van Hekken talk on the subject last June.  I spent over 17 years in Corporate America so of course I knew there were differences in the way that people of different ages worked, but that's about as much gra...more
