It’s FriYay! – two weeks worth edition

by katherine on June 24, 2016

So I missed last week… that’s why I can never commit to these sorts of things. Par for the course. Last week I spent Sunday – LATE Thursday on my trip to Texas. Friday I spent working most of the day, then when Rylee got home from her last day of school for the year […]

Today is January 2

by katherine on January 2, 2015

Today is January 2nd. Today is my first day back full time from maternity leave. No, I’m not that sad about it. Today is my 1-year work anniversary. Yes, if you’re doing the math right now, I got pregnant literally a week into my new job. Today is my first official day in my new […]

An urge to write

by katherine on December 5, 2014

Every so often (actually, quite often) I get this urge to write. It could be about a specific story- maybe about one of the kids, maybe not-, about a cool project we’ve been doing around the house, maybe recipe, or like now, just a little update about things and such. Unfortunately, when these impulses arise, […]


Proud Mama Moment

by katherine on April 11, 2014

Sometimes I wonder if I’m doing right by my girls. As a woman. As a mom. And as a working mom in particular. Am I giving my kids my best every day? We rush every morning to catch the bus and then more often than not I feel like we end the day rushed and […]

Do Not Disturb

by katherine on January 22, 2014

Between my last day at Cosmos and my first day at my new job I had 12 days off…well, 11 if you count the one day I went back into Cosmos to help with “orientation” for my replacement. A few things to note about my time off…a) I’ve never taken time off over the holidays. […]


Kicking Ace

by katherine on January 11, 2014

This week has been pretty great. I’ve officially finished one full week at my new job. So far? I’m loving it. I’m immersing myself in all things tech and all things social media. I’m loving the time I’m spending researching trends and topics. Yesterday I was editing website copy. Today I volunteered to prep 3 […]


10 Minute Update-A new Year

by katherine on January 9, 2014

This last week has been kind of a whirlwind. Oh who am I kidding, life in gerenal is a whirlwind anymore. However, with back-to-school and a new job, this week has been a special version of said whirlwind. Ok, I’ll stop using that word now. I just finished munching some Oreo cookies dipped in peanut […]


Here we go!

by katherine on January 2, 2014

Last night I finished filling out my paperwork. I made sure the coffee pot was ready to go. I ironed my slacks and even though the dress code is pretty casual I felt weird wearing jeans on my first day, I made sure to choose a shirt that wasn’t too dressy, but didn’t look dumb […]


The end of a chapter

by katherine on December 20, 2013

I wasn’t really sure if there would be tears or not. I’ve been fine all day…through our office lunch, while I read their card, through the goodbye hugs. But there is something about sitting here, in a quiet office, wrapping up outstanding projects at my half-packed desk that is leaving me on the brink of […]

I wake up to my alarm…it’s been going off for 5 minutes at least. Holy shit, did I even sleep at all? As badly as I want to hit the snooze button I get up. {minus 3} Time to make lunch…let’s see…half PB&J, string cheese, chips, water…she needs some fruit. Banana. Check. {minus 2} “Reesie, […]
