Daily Drama – Eye on the Prize

One of my staff sent an e-mail first thing today: “What is next to your head in this picture?” About that… It’s really quite simple. I decided to update my Profile pic last week as a reminder that my sanity is hanging by a very thin thread. You see this photo was taken as I was …

Daily Drama – Casual Friday

You know things are bad when my 11-year-old son is giving me advice. And I’m taking it. Yaa. I’ve really been riding that struggle bus lately. So when my very smart boy overheard me complaining about how tired I am by week’s end, he told me just how to handle the situation. It was all good …

Daily Drama – Sick Feet

Today sucked. Totally. Right as I am getting into the Holiday groove I get the wind knocked out of me by bronchitis.  After sucking on a bottle of NyQuil for a couple of days I dragged my sorry ass back to work. Unfortunately I swapped over to “Daygels” not realizing they’re synonymous to dryheaves. Good …

Daily Drama – Coffee, Tea, Who Me?!?

I admit it.  Coffee Hour does not interest me. After Church, I have places to go. Usually a visit with my Mom or Dad. However this month, I was voluntold to pick a week to host, as it is the Worship Committee’s month for Coffee Hour.  I’m no Bette Crocker. But I can bake. When …

Daily Drama – Flower Power

As I have mentioned more than once, being on the Worship Committee at Church, part of this means I am in charge of the flowers. I know nothing about flowers but really great with decorating, crafts and take exceptional pride about doing everything well and doing it right. Yet it seems I can get never anything …

Daily Drama – Going on Here

Drama Jr. strolled in yesterday and asked,  “What’s Going on Here?”  I replied, “You mean what’s NOT going on here.” I quit taking my Migraine Meds hence my OCD returned full force at 4AM. Sooo, I tore apart the house convinced I could have a  re-org done by 7:30AM in time to VPN for work. Ya. …

proud Tale – Is it Wrong?

Question? Is it Wrong of me to be proud of the qualities my children may have inherited from me – Good or Bad? Take for instance my son’s “tell it like it is” philosophy. Like the time I was strolling through the grocery store and he asked why I was going to Zumba Class again when …
