EWWW

I can’t wait for this holiday season to be over for one reason, and one reason alone… the cleaning people at work.  My wastebasket at my desk is overflowing… and I’m not even going to comment on what the floor in the Men’s room looks like! Advertisements

On and On It Seems to Go

Looking at the end of another year… It’s funny what 366 days will bring.  I started the year with a month-old son that refused to sleep through the night, a dread of my relationship and how much (little) sex I’d have throughout the course of the year, as well as a general sense of feeling…

How Do You Get To Carnegie Hall…
