I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces. And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 9 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
Sick of the same old thing? Let's change it up! And Monday is a perfect day to start.
Don't Get There at the Same Time Every Day. You probably can't show up late of course, but try getting there early one or two days a week. If you always get to work at the exact same time, your days start bleeding together. But if you get there a little early every now and then, you have time to settle in and talk to people, which can also help you network.
Change Your Shoes When You Get to Work, and When You Leave. Some women already do this, mainly because they don't want to be in heels any longer than they have to. But guys should try it too. Wear sneakers on the way to work. Then put dress shoes on when you get there, and change back when you leave. The dress shoes make some people wake up and feel more alert. And putting comfortable shoes on at the end of the day automatically helps you relax.
Change Your Chair. It doesn't have to be permanent. Just try it for half a day to change things up. Some people even like sitting on those big, rubber exercise balls for an hour or two a day, which you can also use to work out your abs if you're feeling extra motivated.
Look into the rest of the list here.
