Happy Third Anniversaire MrsEnginerd!

This labor of love started as a coping mechanism during The Layoff. The year 2015 was ripe with possibilities. My severance package allowed for a much deserved sabbatical after 10 uninterrupted years of service as a design engineer. In theory, this experience as an engineer would open any door I chose to unlock but I... Continue Reading →
