Enlightenment

Today I had a moment. A moment with my vacuum. An enlightenment, if you will. Before you judge me or laugh at me, hear me out. This is about to get deep!  You see, I was cleaning my house like I do every day. That’s right. Every.single.day. I have a cat (not one of those […]

Oilfield Whiplash

I’m a planner. I tend to be on the extreme side of organized, and I like to know what is going on when, where, and how. I also like things to go off without any hitches (no pun intended). Hence, my frustration with the ‘oilfield unknown’. It freaks me out and disrupts my otherwise perfect […]
