A Little Sage Advise

     I talked to my mom this morning  (I try to talk to my mom at least once a day, but life happens at times and it may go down to once a week, but we do text) and she told me something that has sat with me most of the day.  I was recounting to her that people’s reactions to my blog and/or tweets surprises me.  I don’t write things purposely to get people to read or pay any attention to me; I write because it is cathartic to me, it makes me happy and it gives me an avenue to voice all of those things that are in my head on a day-to-day basis.  It amazes me that people are helped by what I write, that people take notice of little ol’ me.  The gift of the pen is one that I have had since I was a kid.  I can write papers, poetry, short stories, etc. without much effort at all on my part.

One Heck of a Week So Far

Happy Hump Day my Lovelies!

Friday was a very lonely work day for me because my partners in crime, Luis and Macie, were both out of the office and so to say the least the day eked by quite slowly.  So I was looking forward to Monday when everything was going to be back to normal; not so much!  Macie was dragging because she was worn out from a long weekend with her family and I had an early morning meeting (which ended up being a pissing contest between me and my former boss… I was the victor!).  But true to form, Sauceboxx a.k.a. Heinz 57 was back!  I said something to her, very innocuous and innocent in nature, and she replied, not even looking at me, “Big Whoop!  You want to fight about it?”  Glad to have her back!

Yesterday we were in configuration meetings from 10-2 and 2-4 and bored to tears and hungry (this is why there wasn’t a post for yesterday… so sorry my dears, I will do better).  I had just come from the Orthopedist earlier that morning and was issued a new knee brace until my surgery in June (more to come on that later).  I was shuffling around the training room we were in  ( I use shuffling for the lack of a better term and to accurately describe my gait- Think of the old Jewish guy from The Simpsons© that sang “Old Grey Mare” ) and the tie came off of my jumper I was wearing.  I was shuffling back to my seat and said, “Oh no, my cloths came off!” and Macie damn near fell out of her seat laughing at me!  She said that she couldn’t wait to see me as an old lady, creeping around and my cloths falling off at random.  Very Heinz 57 type behavior! 

So here’s to long, boring meetings, stale coffee, late lunches and clothes coming off at random around the office!

A.K.A Macie!

  My obsure Simpsons reference!

 

Blessings and Happiness

Emerging As a New Me

Anyone who really knows me knows that I am random. I can be easily distracted by squirrels, puppies and butterflies, drawn to their seemingly random patterns and actions.  Something that my mom and I have in common is our love of birds and butterflies.  I adore butterflies, I will stop everything that I am doing to marvel at their magnificent hues and delicate nature. My sister and I share an affinity for many things, seafood, wine, happy hours and the occasional tattoo. Several months ago we went to our favorite tattoo parlor, The Electric Chair, for late night sister time.  While there we both got inspirational tattoos, hers was words of faith, mine was a butterfly.  Read the rest of this entry »

I cannot take you seriously with an email address like that!

I work in Human Resources, I have for the last 7 years.  I am a Sr. Generalist/Recruiter and everything in between.  I am Mom, Sister, Therapist, Physician, Task Master and I love every minute of it!  In saying that I see all kinds of things, adults, grown-a$@ people throwing temper tantrums, throwing things at each other, cussing ( not cursing but cussing) each other out and saying the most asinine things imaginable during the interview process.

The Joys of Being A Big Sis

I hear so many horror stories from friends, co-workers, Facebook folks about having siblings, specifically younger siblings.  I know personally siblings that literally don’t talk to each other, not even via social media and it is sad to see honestly.  The bonds between siblings are inexplicable, indescribable and at times infuriating and frustrating to say the least.  However I wouldn’t change my role as a Big Sis for anything in the world.  It is my job to keep the younger ones from tripping into the same pitfalls that I fell into, give them advise how to deal with the parental units and protect them from all the bad things that can happen in life.  I don’t always succeed, sometimes they do the same things that I did, don’t quite navigate the waters of life without running aground, and sometimes I can’t protect them the way I would have hoped.  At times I feel like a failure as the oldest, but then I get a text or a call or an IM asking me for my opinion or help and my lack of self-worth bounces back.

A Cure For What Ails You

So, my day started off just down right crappy, as you all can tell from my first tweet of the day.  As I trudged through my day, trying not to be downright depressed, my co-workers made me laugh from a place that I thought I had long forgot.  I can honestly say that the ladies that I work with are a group unlike any other!  They are hilariously funny, supportive and we keep each other from going crazy on everyone else.  To my ladies in HR, and you know who you are, my first drink at happy hour this week will be raised to you!

Cheers!
