Sunday Matters: It’s Happening

Sunday Matters

Against my will, my vacation is nearing its end. I return to the office on Tuesday and it’s not going to be pretty. No need to sugarcoat it. The day will be long and arduous and hopefully everyone will leave me alone for a little while.

Right Now:

Just making the most of the days I have left by not doing anything.

This Week:

If I can just get through the week, I should be good. I don’t have anything else scheduled except for a short get-together on Saturday.


I’m still pondering what my first book of the year will be. I ordered two good ones but they are taking so long to get here.


I’m jumping between Murphy Brown, The Haunting of Hill House, and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. I am on a cleaning kick that I do not want to end.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I actually got this months ago but haven’t really had the opportunity to use it until my vacation. My MacBook crapped out. As you know, they are pricey. For what I use a laptop for, I didn’t see the point in shelling out a lot of cash right before Christmas so I got an Acer Chromebook. It’s super thin, has a compact 14 inch screen, and gives me three days of battery life when used off and on. Everything I do is web-based or in the Cloud so it just made sense. For less than $250, why the heck not?

Grateful for:

These last two days of vacation. So glad I took the extra days.

My question for you today has to do with music. If you could select one song to head into the new year with, what would it be? I learned of this guy from his appearance at the Rose Parade. He used to be homeless but now his unique sound is going viral.

Here’s Lemonade by Alex Boye. Give it a listen. I guarantee you’ll smile.

#ONEWORD for 2019

My One Word for 2019 is Change

In previous years I’ve chosen, Simplicity, Discover, and Connect but this year it seemed crucial for me to settle on a word that would have a  lot of impact on how I live my life. CHANGE, is that word.

Have you chosen a word for 2019? The ones I’ve seen thus far have been really good.
