Feeling My Age

I hate to admit it, but yes, I am feeling my age. I suppose the recent hospitalization has something to do with how I have been feeling lately, physically, emotionally, and mentally, but there today, it just hit me again. Time for one of those half-meant joke posts...You know you're getting old when... choose where to eat based on whether or not they have outdoor foam seats and cushions on their chairs. Lower back pain can be hell! can barely keep your eyes open at 10 pm, and you start yawning constantly - at a bar. ...everything hurts. ...your get togethers with friends are all about the kids. Oh, look, it's 11 pm. Way past my bedtime!

Just Keep Swimming

I've been feeling awfully off this week, and while it is a Saturday, I need to grab myself by the back of my neck and keep swimming. Obviously figuratively. Maybe a little Nemo in the background will help.  Or a dragon.

A New Year, a Major Wakeup Call

I read somewhere that when man makes plans, God laughs at them. I'm in no position to say what God thinks or does, but life did throw me a curveball at the beginning of this year. In the first week of January, I was pretty much psyched about everything. Just like most other people looking for motivation to start anew, I felt positive about the new year.

Dreams Come True

Last night, I found myself browsing through my archives again. I don't know what I was looking for, but I did enjoy reading some of my old posts. One that struck me was written in May 2008 , and I loved how that post ended. "One last thing - I really wish I could work from home full time." I loved that line because of one thing: I am working from home (or the beach or wherever) full time. I started doing it in 2010, and it is an excellent reminder that dreams and wishes do come true if you look for ways and wait. That being said, while my week has been rather crazy at work, I look back to that dream many years ago. Image via nicopierce

Mango Tree Bistro at Trinoma

A couple of days ago was a special day, so while it was a working day for the most part, I squeezed in some time to go have a nice meal. I'm easy like that. While I wouldn't say no to a carrera tag heuer, a near-as-authentic as can be Thai dinner puts a smile on my face. I'd never heard of Mango Tree Bistro before, but it was the most decent-looking place in that part of Trinoma, and the choice was perfect!
