Some Mondays Are Worse Than Others
I was sitting in my car with tears streaming down my
face. My heart was pounding and my stomach was in knots. What made this unusual is the fact that I rarely cry. It’s not something
intentional. I’m just not wired to be a crier. It started out as a typical...

Job (Dis)satisfaction
Sometimes I hate my job. I used to love it. It started out great and was pretty close
to what I expected. Of course, there were a few surprises and challenges. But

This or That
It’s definitely an ego boost to be aggressively recruited
for not one – but two – great opportunities. Within the last 10 days, I’ve experienced this and feel
blessed to have been contacted (out of the blue) for jobs that I would

Say what? By Anonymom “Hang on a second,” I said to my sister. Our oldest child
was still struggling in school so I’d called my sister – who is a teacher
– to ask her advice. She had also successfully raised her own daughter who was now a responsible mom of...
