I’m exhausted

When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila!

So technically these are limes in the photo, but it was a photo on my camera roll that seemed to fit.

Compassion Fatigue

Today was a challenging day in my professional life.  I felt like I just got hit with one person or situation after another who needed my help, my compassion, direction or just an ear to listen.  At the end of the day, I left feeling really spent and very fatigued. Anyone who works in the… Continue reading Compassion Fatigue

Learning to Adult

You might wonder, "Wendi, how didn't you know that your husband hadn't been working for two months? How didn't you notice that the bills weren't getting paid?"
