So This Happened…

At bedtime, Tuesday night, I could have sworn I shut my ringer off before sinking my head into a pillow but by 5am Wednesday morning, I was alerted to my forgetfulness with beeps.

It’s not out of the ordinary to receive early morning calls because I speak with lots of family law attorneys on the East Coast, three hours ahead. I sent the call to...

How I Change

When I had an employer, I’d drive to work a different route every single day. The purpose was so that my day would start differently. I live close to a four-way stop. There came a day when I got tired of seeing the same damn things every morning. The choice was mine to venture a new road. These routes aren’t the most efficient or easiest but they are totally worth it. If you work an 8 to 5, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You...
