Today, I spent the day setting up a new project management system, complete with the learning curve. For a while now, I've been using Asana to keep track of my projects. At first, I really liked it. But lately, it's gotten hard for me to see it and to find where everything is. I keep … Continue reading Trying to keep track
I've been trying to enjoy the little things today, like watching the little black birds bathing in the large dark puddle of my neighbor's driveway, seeing a man smile as he passes a woman carrying a baby, and the chuckle of an old woman even though I don't know what she was laughing at.

Does a cat ever worry that it needs to be more of a cat? Does a tree ever try to become a tulip? Does it ever try to have straighter branches? Or maybe bright blue leaves? Isn't it time that you just be yourself?
Okay, it's been a day. I won't go into all of it, but it's been a Monday oh so totally. Woke up to a couple inches of snow, not that it was unexpected. But today, everyone and their dog decided to drop their kids off at school. Traffic was backed up a whole block. I … Continue reading What a Monday!
