You’re damned if you do. You’re damned if you don’t – updated

So, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with social media but especially Facebook. I’ve learned that it’s impossible to be friends with everyone you know in real life. I have a hard rule of not adding supervisors or managers onto social media. That always seems to bite you in the ass. At my last job, I…

I love my new home.

It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, I was living among a pile of boxes and had made a decision that would forever change my life. I moved. As most of you know by now. And it sucked. A lot. But today marks my second week of living in my new condo…

Winter is here to stay. And I drink instant coffee now.

It’s Saturday morning. I’m showered. Dressed. My hair is washed and dried. I’ve got my toasted bagel and cream cheese with a banana for breakfast. A cold glass of milk. And a hot cup of coffee.

Butternut Squash & Ham Casserole

I’ve been eating so much chicken and kale lately, that I needed to change things up. I switched to spinach, zucchini and decided to order a pack of sliced butternut squash from my deli. The problem with packages like these, is they don’t last long. So, I looked through my fridge to see what I…
