Going Old-School, Baby!

I found this through Jodi. I love these old-school memes. They’ve always been a fun way to learn something about the bloggers we read ....more

Starting Again (Yes, Really)

I can’t believe I haven’t so much as logged in here in two months. I’ve actually missed writing here quite a bit, but I’ve been settling in to my new job and by the end of the day, I just haven’t had the energy to even open my laptop. However, I’m loving what I do ....more

Out With The Old…

Last week I went to a lunch with my husband. His client asked us all to go around the table and tell everyone the best thing that happened to them in 2013. When they got to Bill he said, “Mo quitting her job!” I was next to him and said, “Hey! ...more

Writing. Just Not Here.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks ’round these parts.

So I’ve waited ....more

Getting Old Sucks

Since I’ve been home my mom has started calling me every day, and the topics rarely vary. We start with her asking if I’ve heard anything about my unemployment appeal yet (no), and then we move on to whether or not anyone has called and offered me a job yet (No, again. But thanks for rubbing it in asking) ....more
