Nothing gets me more excited than organizing! I love walking into a client’s home and seeing the chaos and knowing that I am trusted to make it all better. I see it as a puzzle that was dumped on the floor. I start by sorting the edges, then grouping like items together. I start moving pieces around and soon I have a complete puzzle.
There are a few things I’ve learned in my 40-plus years on this planet, including that it’s hard to feel motivated to exercise when you’re wearing an oversized Cookie Monster T-shirt and dreaming about pancakes.
Vacation is great. Travel is another issue. Over the years, I’ve logged thousands of miles driving and flying around the country, sometimes with delays.

It usually comes at a cost of something less than $15 or $20.

Fargo - OK, so maybe it wasn’t the prettiest game. And it won’t make visiting teams fear coming to town. And it didn’t instill a whole lot of confidence for the hometown crowd. But the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks home opener, as we say here in the upper Midwest, it could’ve been worse.
An early morning headache called for a couple ibuprofens. I raided the office stash, pouring two tablets into the palm of my hand.
When I looked again, there was only one. I started scanning the office floor frantically for the missing ibuprofen.
