I got my Mojo back. I'm in the Groove. I got a Grip. I got over the Hump. It's all mental. I had to get some craziness in my system out. I found out that if I eat too many bagels with cream cheese, lasagna, cheesy Italian food and e... Read more

I like that we balance each other's highs and lows. What a great group of supporters we are to each other. I hit a rough patch. The job took another turn and sometimes I wish I never left the last one. I anticipated taking those 2-3 hours... Read more

It started with a day of serious pissed off. I'm trying to rise above some personal frustration and after 100+ days, I blew up. Imagine that; work didn't do it! I ate the cheese. That would not have been so bad but the manner in which it occu... Read more
