Kaela in Kubicle Land

Top Ten Drawbacks to Being in a Cubicle from joke of the  10. Being told to ‘Think outside the Box’ when you’re in a box all day long. 9. Not being able to check e-mail attachments without turning around to see who’s behind you. 8. Fabric cubicle walls do not offer much protection from any kind of gunfire. 7.

while I was sitting at the Tattered Cover eavesdropping on a convers…I mean!  While I was READING the book; The voice of Knowledge by Don Miguel Ruiz. “In the moment when we separate from God, we begin to search for God, for the love we believe we don’t have.  Humans are continually searching for justice, for beauty, for truth- for the way we used to be before we believed in lies.  We are searching for our authentic self.”  What is… Read More »A perfectly timed text floated across my screen this morning…..

Even Indian Goddess’s struggle (every once in awhile!)

“What the hell is going on?!?!?!  I keep having these mini emergencies that completely stress me out and prevent me from saving any money at all.  Veterinary emergencies, broken furnace, leaky roof, speeding ticket (ok, I ran a red light), family strife, pink eye, broken tree branches threatening to fall on someone’s head   . . .  so I have been a stress case, my back is killing me due to a combo of stress and extreme snow shoveling.  And I definitely feel like I am somehow bringing it all down on myself.  So I decide to pull it together.  I spent my three day weekend relaxing and not “doing.”  Then on Monday, in an effort to be serene and relaxed, and on time to work, I woke up at 5:30, packed a delicious healthy breakfast and lunch, did yoga in my living room, got ready for work, and put my purse and food in my car so I wouldn’t forget a thing.  I defrosted and warmed up my car, then I drove cassidy to the dog park so she could have a solid 30 minute play time in the off leash area.  Then at precisely the right time, I harnessed Cassidy and headed to my car to do a quick dog drop off at the house and then drive to work where I would arrive well rested, excersised, well fed, and knowing my sweet animal was tired and resting at home.

But NO.  NO NO NO.  Read More »Even Indian Goddess’s struggle (every once in awhile!)

It was great to see… Read More »Reflections on a Colorado visit (from land of palm trees)
