Farewell to Old Friends...

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~Carol Sobieski and Thomas Meehan, Annie
Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love. ~George Eliot

Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending. ~Lazurus Long
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. ~Theodor Seuss Geisel, attributed

Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life. ~Jean Paul Richter

The best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the heart. ~Alan Alda

Look Ma, No CHAIR!


I rolled my chair and my ball out of my office last week. I had been having problems with my hips rotating inwards and tight hip flexors and know that sitting all day at my computer only exacerbated the problem. Even though I knew I should get up from my chair and stretch or walk around a bit every 30-60 min. I just found that I never did it and would stand up after 2 or 3 hours of sitting feeling stiff and sore. So far I have not had any problems standing all day. I do find a need to change support back and forth between feet but also find myself naturally stretching various parts of my body(hips, feet, back, arms, neck) throughout the day also. The set-up I have rigged(the two white boxes on top of my desk) is not ideal but it is working for now until I decide if I want to invest in a real standing desk or even an adjustable one.

Is it an Office or a Zoo?

In my office/zoo I have one hamster named Timmy, one beta fish named Rosie, two tiny frogs named Dumb and Dumber, and one large turtle named Franklin. Also our little dog Brady comes and goes, watching me work and to check in on the occupants of our little zoo.
