Things are a changin'

Okay, so trying blog more often seems to be an epic failure but things certainly have been a changing!  I start with a new department on Monday and am quite excited to be doing something different after five years of the same thing.  What is really amazing is the number of people that called or emailed me to tell me I could not leave my current position, that I matter to them, that what I did for five years mattered, how whoever they hire has big shoes to fill.  Just imagine how good people would feel if we told them they matter more often?  I bet there would be more happiness out there in the world.

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

Blogging Break

I never understood why people would blog that they are taking a blogging break.  I mean life happens; people get busy, sick, depressed... they may not be able to blog or have no desire to.  That is what happened with me.  I was just tired, depressed, stressed, and life overtook any desire I had to come up with something to talk about on a blog that no one reads. Trying to find something to talk about, feeling I had to be witty when I was just not happy.  But, the desire to write about stuff is back, so here I am.

It is hard to believe that three months have passed since I sat at the computer and typed out something.  Oh, I tried to come up with my usual Wednesday Words of Wisdom (which I will continue)! But, overall blogging has been an epic failure.  It has been three months filled with adventures, stress, laughter, tears, and happiness.

Doodle and I still laugh daily, I firmly believe that is in the top five requirements of marriage, the ability to laugh.  Sometimes, I laugh at Doodle and sometimes he laughs at me but most of the time, we laugh together.  So many people have asked me what the secret is, why are Doodle and I still so happy after 11 years.  I tell them, marry your best friend. There is no one in the world that I would rather be with.

So anyway, I am going to try and be better about blogging, it may only be once a week, but watch out world... I'm Back!

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

If you look good, you feel good.  If you feel good, you play good.  If you play good, they pay good.
