Unexpected Blessings

You plan, you prepare, you schedule, and you await the unexpected. I love a schedule.  I love checking off my to-do list and accomplishing great things with my day.  I wake up in the morning with a clear picture of how I want the day to run, and how I want to make that happen.  It’s programmed into my DNA.

Unplugged.

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog posts over the past couple of weeks, you’ll know that I’m just slightly obsessed (ahem) with technology. I’m one of those people who never leaves the house without spare cables and multiple charging options (including my funky little solar charger that I got off Kickstarter!) and whose first items in any...

New Gadgets Part 2

As I said in my post on Monday, I do love getting fitness gadgets for Christmas! I’ve been in a real slump, fitness-wise, over the past several months. I’m struggling to find the time I need to commit to my fitness goals, and my life, as a result, is getting more and more sedentary. I know the “UP Bracelet“ is going to help with that. ...
