In case you all missed it – I’m in grad school.

I know, you had no idea, right? Right.

Anyway, this semester I’m taking PR Features Writing for the Web. The class just started two weeks ago and we discovered that (ready for it) – we have to write … on the web.

That’s right folks, our entire class will be leading discussion on the web, right over here at our handy-dandy WordPress site. There we’ll be discussing all of the earth-shattering, mind-blowing topics you can handle, from the perspectives of about 10-15 different people.

At the very least, everyone will be showing up to hone our writing skills at the mercy of the Interwebs.

(You’re the Interwebs. Please show us mercy.)

Anyway, join us, won’t you? I would LOVE it if you’d travel over there and give us all some open and honest feedback, both about our subject matter and our writing styles. In fact, it’s part of the assignment to get visitors to the blog, so if you could just hop on over, that’d be great!

You’re not going to make me beg, are you?


It really does happen!

For all of you who thought using “the dog ate my homework” as an excuse was too cliché, rest assured – it does happen!

Found this little gem this morning when I was just about to hop on the treadmill. I heard a very distinct crunching noise coming from the living room and, alas! There it was! My dog, trying to eat my homework!

If I would have thought of it in the moment, I could have snapped a photo of the little guy at work, but let’s face it – 6 a.m. comes awfully early for just about all of us, right?

Good job, Lambeau. In my state of half-awakeness, I failed to document you in the act. So for now, I suppose it’s my word against yours.

Good thing I’m the one that makes the rules around here.


If you belong to a gym, then you may think you know me.

I would be the girl that shows up around January 2nd ready & raring to go. I’ve got a New Year’s Resolution and I’m bound and determined to keep it.

For most, that story ends sometime around, oh, January 11th. Hey look at that – today’s the 11th.

But for me, this resolution has a lot more sticking power. And you’ll be happy to know it has nothing to do with showing up at your gym and making you wait for a treadmill. (Don’t get me wrong – I’m definitely trying to get more fit – but this time I’m doing it in the comfort of my own home because the husband and I bought a treadmill. So no worries.)

What really makes my resolution different, though, is that I’m focusing a lot more on my overall health and wellbeing, not just a number on a scale or clothes tag. And since I have this forum to help keep me accountable, I’m going to lay out those goals so you can all mock me when I don’t keep them up. So here goes …

In 2012, I resolve to:

  • Be a healthier person, in both mind and body
  • Take better control of my free time
  • Stop complaining about things I’m able to fix
  • Be a better wife
  • Write more!

That’s it – not too much, right?

2012 has the potential for being one hell of a year and I’m resolving to make it one.

So, how many of you are still keeping your resolutions?
