I am a fairly logical and intelligent person guys, why can't I make this one freaking decision regarding taking this upgrade contract or not?

It would give me challenging and interesting work to do for ~6 months but it is at a lower rate than I'd normally get for an upgrade project. I like the team I'd be working with, I like the location I'd be working from, and I like when the contract is currently set to wrap up.

But taking another contract from this client for under my normal rate seems backwards and I cannot shake the feeling it might be a mistake.

Someone do some evaluation of the ether & let me know the outcome?

Honestly, my best advice, as your shaman.

Flip a coin.  If you regret the choice, you will know what you want.

What you want is important.  Taking a momentary pay cut is worth it if it reduces stress and positions you for further reductions in stress.

Today's hat tip goes to +Jeremy Harany for being a great bike mentor (I now know how to operate my quick release tires & car rack!) & supervising my training ride with Jack today.

Jack did really well when the bike was moving but still needs to work on not trying to pull me over so he can eat the grass when we pass it slowly :-/

I do not often get to brag about my dog's good behaviour (funny etc yea but rarely good) but ya know what... today he was a darn good dog.

He didn't pull me down (or up) the stairs while I was maneuvering on the crutch today & he remembered that his slow command needs to be slow to whatever pace I'm at even if that means waiting on the stairs.

Good boy Jack, Good boy.

I had managed until this moment to forget what it felt like to be in so much pain it made you nauseous. #ankle #ouch

Jack shows off his loot from Santa on his new bed from auntie Sheryl and says he hopes you all are having as spoiled a Christmas as he is.

His human on the other hand will be away from the internet & her cell for a few days to recoup some mental space after all the recent chaos.

Even beings used to chaos can get over loaded it turns out.

I'm getting a pedal bike again for the first time in years so I'm in need of recommendations on a couple of things:
1) anyone have any thoughts on the best bike for biking with a solid dog
2) I drive a small car without a trailer hitch, anyone have any recommendations on easy to install (and remove for winter/road trips/etc) bike racks for small cars?

My parents have had one of these for years. It fits hatchbacks, vans, sedans, packs down relatively compact, and is bombproof (one giant center axle that all the arms come off).

Quality comes at a bit of a price, though.

Happy International Women's Day everyone!

Normally I'd promote a charity for donations today but I know it has been a rough couple of weeks (for most of you anyway) leading up to the day this year so my celebration suggestion is this:

Hug (with her permission of course) one of the fabulous women who bring something to your life. Whether it is laughter, light, listening, love, or simply zen (calmness) - take a moment and thank her for bringing it into your life.

I hope virtual hugs count - because I have one for you!

I'm not big on the vibe to the early part of the piece but I did enjoy the part about "questions are like gifts, the value comes from the thought put into them"

Well at least if I had to evac down 20 flights in a skirt, I wore flats today instead of heels. #ow

We are on the 24th floor. Most of the women in the office have flats at stations for evacuations.

Once again I want to publicly thank +Sarah Keats for all her hard work in finding the right building for (puppy) Jack & I to move in to.

She was amazing and I cannot thank her enough for her helping to make my dream come true.
