Full to the brim

Today was a bit of a strange day. Not really had any down time until this very moment. Was nice to get out of the office for a bit (it was sunny!) and to collaborate inside and outside BB 🙂 The new database is running, and Matt and I are nearly set up, but there are... Continue Reading →


Chicken Soup:

I went into the thrift store the other day and failed to exit empty handed. I found 2 books: Chicken Soup for the Dog-lover's Soul, and a nice hardcover copy of a book already on my shelf at home. I'm trying to read more this year, and I think I'm doing ok at it. I've... Continue Reading →

Sharing: how it’s done

I am human. I am one person, and I do my best to survive and thrive during my time here on Earth 🙂 I am the kind of person who likes to imagine/build/know all the inner or at least basic workings of something and how it fits with the bigger picture. I like going after answers,... Continue Reading →

Over dinner and drinks

Wild Rice Bistro and Old Crow Coffee shop have attached themselves to my heart. And I appreciate that there are a handful of people I can be at ease with. I feel as if I'm nearly always navigating, so it's really spectacular when I can just trust the people and processes and feel the joy... Continue Reading →

All the gory details

Friday had to top my list for worst day of 2018 so far. It was rough. I'm glad I had the option to turn and run, but seriously pissed I didn't have anywhere to run to. I've been working long hours, trying to get out from under a truckload of paperwork and transition. And the... Continue Reading →

Nothing for it

I've come to terms once again with the fact that not everything can be on my terms. And it's eating me still. I'm frustrated beyond words. I'm shaking and I imagine my eyes burning holes into anyone who chooses to attempt to divert my attention elsewhere, like a very angry cat-- I'd like to roar... Continue Reading →

The day is won!

Good day at work. Managed to get everything done that I wanted to, without overloading anybody or anything. Good day on the bus with only one heart-pouring episode. Good day at home. Made some solid plans for the weekend which I think I'll live to see now, though Monday was a beast. Really good to talk... Continue Reading →

Decompression sessions

It takes as long as it takes. That has been the principle I have been following for the past several weeks. Some people aren't happy about it (sometimes I'm included in that reference) but it is beginning to show results. As the wonderful magnet on my fridge states: Good things come to those who work their...

Benevolent Chaos 3.0

There's a picture on our fridge at home of one of the first, if not the first time we went to the PNE. If you're having a bad day, all you have to do is look at that picture and the bad feeling is suddenly not so bad. We are on the old wooden roller coaster, terrified... Continue Reading →
