Up, Up, and Away

It’s almost midnight, and I just put my groceries away. What a day. I figured I might as well stay up a few extra minutes to crank out a quick post. I’m delightfully exhausted. My brain hasn’t gotten this much exercise in a long while, and it feels much like my thighs do when I start up a gym routine after months of sitting … Read More Up, Up, and Away

But He Seems Like Such a Nice Guy

I’m afraid of my ex. He’s a highly functioning drinker, but ultimately, I couldn’t handle his love affair with Johnny Walker. It’s a long, sad story which I choose not to tell at the moment. I wrote about some of his antics the other day, but lately I am feeling more and more worried that his raging behavior and invincible attitude is escalating and … Read More But He Seems Like Such a Nice Guy

Busy, Busy…

I think I’m going to have to quit my job. I don’t have time to blog.

New Lisa

Life is good – no, it’s simply divine. I don’t know what I did to deserve any of this, but I am not going to challenge anyone on it. I feel so good, I’ve been eating better – not to lose weight, necessarily, but because I care about myself. And I’m tired of having a stomach ache from eating crap. And I admit I’m … Read More New Lisa

Working Girl’s Check List – Day One

1. Find an alternate route to work. Princeton is gorgeous, but traffic sucks. 2. Collect all business suits and related attire and pack them away in storage. Pull out the blue jeans and buy more flip-flops. (I love this place.) 3. Study stock market lingo and know Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 inside and out. 4. Make a date with … Read More Working Girl’s Check List – Day One
