It’s all in the details: Another visit to Sully Historic Site…

So… we visited Sully Historic Site again last fall because… why not? Actually, we did have a reason: In the first week of school, the students in my daughter’s class were assigned a major project that was going to be due the week of Thanksgiving. It required students to go on a “Family Field Trip”…

Catching up…

I notice it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted. Nothing much has happened in that time, but I’ll share some thoughts anyway… The New Employee By now, I’ve gotten over the shock of him looking quite like the young man I once knew in college. I’ve discovered that besides their dark hair and…

Reunions…

So… my high school reunion happened over the weekend. I didn’t go. 😐  But the photos looked fun. In other news… A new employee on my team started today. I’m his manager. A few notes… His last name is Smith. He’s a Capricorn. … And I’m mathematically twice his age. This should be interesting. Happy…

Partnerships and observations…

Let’s talk about this season’s Nutcracker rehearsals, shall we?… And Jane’s continued attempt to find a new man with whom to share her world. First… Nutcracker. So, I don’t recall whether or not I shared with you last year that my dance partner could not dance… Okay, wait.  Let me back up and start from…

Dr. Love will see you now…

Umm… that would be me. I know this may come as a great shock to you, but I give totally awesome romance and relationship advice. This, according to my friend, let’s call her “Jane”, who is going out on a plethora of dates these days with a variety of men, and has nicknamed me “Dr….

Sooo close, I can feel it…

So… what do you think it is? August/September (etc.) activities: ✔ New haircut ✔ New membership at my old gym ✔ Taking Yoga & Zumba classes again* ✔ Cutting sugar & carbs from my diet, just because (mostly) ✔ Eating ultra-healthful-ly (kind of/probably not) ✔ Starting Nutcracker rehearsals this weekend ✔ Working on home repairs…

Another summer comes to an end…

Free-flowing hair that falls softly across his eyes… just one of the many things I love about Justin Hayward. ♥ Happy fall. That is all. 🙂  

So, as I was saying…

Okay, no. I wasn’t actually saying anything. But I was thinking it. No big mystery. All of my thoughts play on repeat… ♥

Well, it was good while it lasted…

Last night I had the most unsatisfying dream ever. 😐 I dreamt that somebody loved me. And even though we were right in front of each other, talking with each other, laughing and just hanging out having the time of our lives… there was still nowhere for us to go to be alone together. Let…

A good man is hard to find…

There are two men with whom I have recently spent a bit of time communicating. Just by chance. Meaning: I did not proactively pursue them of my own accord. They just both individually discovered my existence and pounced on me. At least, that’s what it has felt like. I met both of them through random…

You are forewarned…

… there are (apparently) cameras everywhere! Little did I know when I registered for this digital training session yesterday — which I attended at work today — that the room would be photographed and tweeted out to the world. But here’s a question… … do you see me? 🙂  

Well… this turned out to be interesting…

I am now about 2-1/2 weeks into my Hitchcock movie class (hitchcock50.tcm.com) and, since we’re not discussing or watching all of his movies — and some of them are showing at times that aren’t quite convenient for me — I have been watching a few online. Last night, I watched Rebecca. I’d heard the name…

I’m back in college again…

… Well, sort of. I am studying this: … via TCM’s collaboration with Ball State University and the Canvas Network. You can get details about the course here. If I manage to score above 70% on all the quizzes, I will get a certificate at the end. Sounds like fun… I think. The program just…

Shuffling through the decades, past and present…

The ballet company’s final show of the season is coming up this weekend. It’s called “Decades On Shuffle” and features dances choreographed to music from the ’20s-today. (In case you’re wondering, I’m not in the show. Just working backstage.) Last week, I handed over the final design files to the printer to produce the show…
