A Woman and Her Doggo

A familiar whining and whinging pulls me back from the dishwasher and my introverted thoughts. The slider door to the backyard is open but that doesn’t really matter to Zach who instead of using this exit sits noisily by the French doors. “Zach, come on!” His behavior defies any explanation. I’ll never know why the […]

500 Followers!!!

Woop woop! Can you believe it? In less than a few months I have made over 670 friends on IG. 😱 This is an amazing feat for this very shy, bossy and introverted INTJ.

2018, A Year in Review

There are so many little things to be thankful for: MBA grades, new friends, the house, selling the rental  Zach, my sister’s move-engagement-wedding, and the beautiful memories of DIYs, parties and the new house. The bad came at us strongly; my mom was diagnosed in September with glioblastoma, a rare and incurable form of brain […]

Zach’s Gotcha Day: 3rd Anniversary!

Can you believe it? It’s been three years since I found a foster family, which knew early on I was a keeper. Must have been my devilish charm and love taps. He he. I’m forever grateful that these two enginerds – engineers + nerds – decided to get a chance on me. I’m doing my […]

Trees!! We got trees!

After months of planning, saving and finagling, Nursery Trees LLC broke ground and installed a row of excelsa cedar specimens in front of our side fence. The property originally had 25 trees, of which only one was left standing. I’m not sure why the county didn’t ask for more to be preserved or installed as […]

Zach, The Introverted Dog Hits 100 Insta Followers

Wow! Let me tell you about how much more effective the follow for follow philosophy is when growing a brand on Instagram. Before mid September, we barely had 50 followers. Two weeks after dumping the 0 follows approach, we are getting closer to reaching 200! That’s phenomenal. 😎 I’m not sure who devised the methodology but […]

Zach, The Insomniac

A few months into getting Zach, in early 2016, a neighbor’s constant slamming of his car door at 4-5 am riled up his protective security dog instincts. Now, almost 2 years later, he still wakes up and barks whenever a similar noise or event occurs. There are two or three weeks were the outbursts subside […]

Layoff Mrs Enginerd

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 […]

I’m Off My Meds!!! – Zach

It’s been a while since I have posted about Zach due to the overwhelming work load of the MBA. We’ve also been waiting to see if he would respond well to being taken off the fluoxetine. It has been at least three months since his last pill and we can safely say he responded well […]
