Pomp and Circumstance

It's New Year's Eve and instead of making resolutions for 2015 or waiting to watch the ball drop in Times Square I am looking forward to the fact that tomorrow I get to sleep in. December has been a busy month and I have much to be grateful for. In fact, I am about to embark on my next … Continue reading Pomp and Circumstance

BALLOONS

Every morning at work part of my responsibilities includes putting out new balloons to welcome new prospects to the property. For the most part I get to choose what colors to inflate.

It amazes me how they can pack so much into nine days. Towards the end my brain was turning to mush … Continue reading Here We Go Again

Dis(en)couragement

I know strange title. Why not just put discouragement? Because it is going to be a strange post about encouragement out of discouragement – and it was a lot better than WTF?? It's the day after Christmas and sadly I didn't get to go home as planned, but I got over that (a little bit), … Continue reading Dis(en)couragement
