A Big Ball of Mush

If a deep-fried Twinkie doesn't sum up this post, I don't know what does.


It's officially been 8 weeks and 4 days since I injured my foot. Good news is my doctor is letting me transition into sneakers. No more hideous boot.

Bad news is I have no idea when I can get back to cardiovascular activity. I have a follow-up foot doctor appointment Wednesday (my bday!) but the doctor really can't tell much from me just sitting there and him poking around the bone. So, I'm assuming he's going to tell me to start walking/jogging on it and see how it feels.

Which is awesome, trust me. I can't wait to get back out there. But at the same time, if I go out for a light jog and have pain, I might just crumble onto the sidewalk and bawl my eyes out. I need this to go away so I can get back to being active. Because right now I feel like....

A BIG BALL OF MUSH.

What to Wear on Your First Day of Work




Deciding what to wear is always hard for women. Not only do we want to look stylish and cool, we also want to feel comfortable in what we are wearing. Add in our indecisive nature and the tendency to believe we have “NOTHING TO WEAR!” and the problem just gets worse. Needless to say, choosing the perfect outfit for the first day of our career may top the charts when it comes to difficult fashion decisions. Right behind that all white dress decision.

But, don’t panic and go buy an entire new wardrobe before Monday at 8:00AM, because I've got you covered. And remember, you've passed the interview, the second panel interview, and the meeting with the big-wigs. So, the good news is that you have already impressed them. And most likely you would not have landed this job without an appropriate and professional look on those days. So, really, the first day is a piece of cake! Right?

2014 Spring Meeting ~ San Antonio


So, as I'm sure you've noticed -- I've been gone for about a week! Kaliwood residents are use to these 3-times-a-year absences. But in case you're new around here, if I disappear for a week it means I had an event! This was our Annual Spring Meeting and it was held in San Antonio, Texas!

I love San Antonio. The Riverwalk makes it feel like a little Oasis right in the middle of a city.





The event was a success! This was my second meeting with my new company and both went extremely well! I've gotten a lot of great feedback which is just motivation to continue to work hard!

Here are some snapshots from the event! I'll add in better ones once we get the images back from the photographer!

15 Things I'm Bad At


Photo: (Heights aren't my thing, OK?)

1. Remembering things. I think I've mentioned my very poor memory on here before. If someone reminds me of something I can remember it, but it's hard for me to recall things.

2. Cooking. Exhibit A. Exhibit B.

3. Doing things without a set plan. I plan for a living. Planning is my career. So, I guess it's not surprising that it's crept into my personal life. Jan 1st you'll see me with a year calendar marking in dates.
