This weekend we had the most amazing weather in DC. Especially compared to last weekend’s out of no where snow.
Unfortunately, I had to continue my crazy work week Friday night through Saturday afternoon. I have a few strategies to stay sane during this mess.
De-stress strategy #1: Rock Creek Park. I made sure to [...]
One of the reasons I haven’t been blogging as much lately is because I’ve been a big ball of stress lately. And I’m sure you don’t want to hear me b*tch about it. Or do you? I’ll go with yes then
I’m managing a particularly stressful project at work (which, might I add I [...]
I’m still swamped at work, which is why I have been posting so rarely. After a long, stressful day I don’t want to get anywhere near a computer feel as inspired to write. My big deliverable is due Tuesday, so hopefully things will be back to normal by then. The good news is that, [...]
This week did not go according to plan AT ALL.
It started with late night focus groups on Tuesday. Add in a very busy work week, a lost bike lock, and one night of insomnia and my workout (and blogging) schedule was royally screwed.
Today I am heading up to NYC and Long [...]
When I got home from work, I was met with destruction.
Leela chewed one of my favorite clutches and got into a bunch of other stuff. She used to do this stuff all the time, but we figured out with daily Rock Creek Park hikes she would be much calmer during the day by [...]

I haven’t been up for blogging much this week because I’ve had a pretty bad week, and don’t really want to come on here and spread all that negativity. Especially because I can’t go [...]
I’ve been having some trouble sleeping lately because of work-related anxiety on the mind, so hopefully today’s combination of activities will kill that stress.
This morning I went to my second Stroga class – this time it was Power Yoga. I liked that it was fast-paced, worked my muscles and only 50 minutes long. Sometimes [...]
I got back yesterday evening from Brussels, completely exhausted. Aside from the few hours of sightseeing I did on Sunday, I worked the entire time. Monday and Tuesday were both 13+ hour work days and then Wednesday was a 13 hour travel day back home.
Normally I would have taken a few hours each [...]
Last week I worked 60 hours Monday through Friday. And I worked 45 hours from Saturday through Wednesday.
Fortunately the end is in sight. My huge client deliverable is due tomorrow. I’m here at the office at 6:30 am, ready to get sh*t done. Hopefully it will be wrapped up by early afternoon because this [...]
I had grand plans to bike and swim after work, but unfortunately I had to work late AGAIN. I am on a project that is going to be a ton of work until the end of June. I’m the kind of gal who likes to keep my work hours to 40-45 hours a week. When [...]
