I’m sitting here at the computer not doing what I’m supposed to be doing, but then… exactly what am I supposed to be doing? Packing. Yes, I should be packing. Books into tubs to take, kitchen glasses, plates, etc. Those are my tasks. I need to get to them. Yet, I blog, I surf, IContinue reading “Boxes to Fill and It’s Raining Outside”
Went in to the office today. Picked up 11 years of stuff and dropped off my work keys, key card, and phone with charger. The best part though, of course, was seeing everyone. I love those people. I also love that place. I think it’s because they are there, and so many great memories ofContinue reading “Visiting The Office”
Today was the day. Those of you who know us know I originally had a plan of leaving my current job and venturing into new frontiers. My current situation, the leukemia and all, sort of put a kibosh on that plan. Basically we just forged ahead with treatment and getting me back on my feetContinue reading “Resigned to the Fact”
Yep folks… Not counting today, I have 49 more days left to work in my current job. Shocking.
Yesterday I was asked how many more work days I had at the department. I didn’t know then, hadn’t been counting them at all. I have still felt it’s not really real. This whole changing careers thing. After all, I’m still in my same job doing the work every day. The kind of work I’veContinue reading “64 Days”
I realize, and have heard from some of you, that I have been remiss in posting regularly to this little blog outpost of mine. I apologize. What can I say… the whirlwind of life sometimes takes over and before I know it a month or so has gone by. This phenomenon happens most especially whenContinue reading “Howdy From San Jose”
It’s happening. I have a meeting set up for Thursday with an interior designer who needs some shots of her latest work. It’s a tiny kitchen. Here we go folks. Time to become a paid working photographer. I’m both excited and sort of shocked. I’m also in the process of putting together a print forContinue reading “Going Public”
Break on Through to the Other Side, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. photo by Karen This weekend was all about clean up. Well… food and drink with friends and clean up. Our place has been a mess. The construction of our master bath addition has created some of it, but seriously, we were in trouble wayContinue reading “Break on Through to the Other Side”
Driving back from the outback with Liz and blogging from the iPhone. Tricky eh?

IMG_0348, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Yep, here we are, back home. And what does that mean for me? It means I’m spending time back at work… working. It’s been a bit of a busy couple of days. We got home from the trip on Sunday, did a bunch of stuff in and around and forContinue reading “In The Office”
Get To Work, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We had a bit of an interesting weekend. On Saturday it snowed here about 4 inches. Really nice, and fun. Karen made a snowman… I helped by putting on the face and the hat, but she did the hard work rolling up the snow and stacking it whileContinue reading “Get To Work”
I’m sitting here tired and sore. Today was the day we sorted food… canned goods, dry goods, etc… for the annual Kiwanis food drive. And before you ask, no, I’m not a member… but I know some. Hence my reason for helping out with the food drive. Let me tell ya… sorting food is backContinue reading “Can of Soup Anyone?”
Will this work day ever be over? I mean, c’mon… it’s gorgeous outside. It hasn’t been gorgeous for quite some time. I want to be out in it, not here, looking at it. Some afternoons during the work week are just hard to take.
centennial golf course photo by Stacia Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl This last weekend, and Monday and Tuesday, I attended a conference in Southern Oregon. Medford, to be exact. The reason I went down on Saturday, instead of the usual Sunday evening President’s reception kick off bash, was because I golfed in the annual tournament. ThisContinue reading “centennial golf course”
