30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 25

Today I’m thankful for a different perspective in my yoga practice. I’ve been away from it for a bit, and since I’ve had a few days off, I have been able to attend 2 classes in as many days. The class I usually go to (and love) is on Sundays, but since yesterday was Monday… Continue reading 30 Days of Thanks 2014 – Day 25

Lay Your Hands On Me

Nope, not talking about the boys from Jersey. I’m talking about the mini-massages you get when you pay for a mani/pedi.  It’s not the whole shebang, but after a day of kids and meetings… a little sea salt scrub, cooling gel, and warmed lotion go a long way to make me feel good.  That’s not… Continue reading Lay Your Hands On Me

So I go home, sign into WordPress, come up with a snappy (or what I think might be snappy) title and…zilch.  Nothing comes.  That is kind of what… Continue reading Do I need my own Union? Musings on labor, accomplishments and self-acknowledgment

30 Days of Thanks – 2013 – Day 17

Today I am thankful for having the last 24 hours to recuperate from being sick.  I was able to “hibernate” as I call it. I have not exactly spent the whole time laying down, but I did not leave the house and am still in my pajamas. Though most people might not think so, I’m… Continue reading 30 Days of Thanks – 2013 – Day 17
