Baby Garrett is a motivator in more ways than one.

I never thought I was a person who would get such pleasure from doing something someone had told me wasn’t possible, even if I wasn’t planning to do so.  I have made some personal and professional decisions over the years based on the supposition that children of my own were a very long shot, at least without serious medical intervention.

This handsome fellow, with his fist in the air says challenge your thoughts, challenge convention.  When life places a bend in your path or an “obstacle” you weren’t anticipating. . .take the dive.  I have to admit, previously I had been a “keep the status quo” kind of girl, anti-surprise party. . .and a planner ten steps in advance (as a very clumsy child who was placed in ballet as a toddler- plotting your next dozen steps keeps you from tripping and falling).  HE has been the most mind blowing and joyous surprise I could have NEVER anticipated.

Part of me would love to pack up Garrett for a visit to the Brody School of Medicine for a hello and visit to some nurses I got to know very well years ago, but I’m so pleased with the (not so, since I’m writing here) silent knowledge  that despite some crazy hurdles, insane odds, and what-are-the-chances timing. . .he’s almost here.

To date, Garrett is the best adventure I’ve taken.  I can’t wait to see what my cohort and I get into in this next very exciting chapter in my life.  So far, he’s been a most excellent and gallant escort while meeting clients and showing homes.  🙂

May you have many exciting new chapters in YOUR life and amazing adventures on your horizon.

Going to the mattresses.

Relax, it’s decaf.  Sometimes, when the going gets rough, or very bizarre, in your work or personal life- it’s time to sit down, have a lovely beverage in a quiet and civilized setting and get out a fresh notebook and make some awesome happen.  The to-do list is getting long and creative but that’s what it takes to dig yourself out of crazy town.  Thank you for the brain storm assistance today.

On the short list- I’m on the hunt for an intern.  You don’t need to be Eastern NC local, most of the help needed will be with web/tech design, publishing and more and can be done from your dorm room in your pjs a few hours a week and I write a glowing letter of recommendation, if I do say so myself.
