An open letter to the man sitting in the car next to me...

Air-quotes are a very important visual tool. They come in pretty handy when I want to make a point. Wildly gesticulating also helps me to get my points across.
But neither make a darn bit of difference when the person you're talking to IS ON THE OTHER END OF YOUR CELL PHONE.

Realizations, but not revelations.

Sometimes you just have to give in and realize you can't do it all. This is probably the hardest lesson in the world for me. But about the time I was using my lunch break (and my last real break for the day) to call Verizon about my wonky phone, it really hit home.
I'm not Superwoman.
I know, shocker, right? I blame the movie, "Supergirl," for planting the idea in my head that I could have it all. I mean, she beat Faye Dunaway! Clearly I was mislead.
So I'm really going to do my best over the next 89 days to cut myself some slack and recognize when I'm going overboard. And if I don't, I'm sure someone will yell at me (much like they did last night and today).

How about you? What's your latest realization?
