Can I have a drink? Of course! :)

I just realized that I have not had a cup of coffee or a beer in two years! That's so crazy!! But, I have become a "wine connoisseur" lately, it doesn't bother my gut. In addition to vodka and gin, wine is one alcoholic drink that does not make me violently ill. I have discovered a … Continue reading Can I have a drink? Of course! 🙂

Lies . . . Lies . .. the Lies I tell! After a very stressful week the new boss took me and my coworker out to lunch last Friday.

I believe everyone has had "That … Continue reading You gotta laugh 🙂 . . . That one time . .

An IBD experience . .

Every since I started this new job I have been pleasantly surprised by the lack of urgency to go to the restroom. I sat comfortably during back to back meetings for 3 hours sitting far away from the door,  and in one meeting the entire staff was present.
