Pulse Point

I started this blog to document my journey to marriage…but I’ve learned that after I actually DO some wedding planning…I don’t want to frick’n talk about it! At an old job, we used to have meetings called “pulse points” where you metaphorically pause to check your pulse: “How am I feeling?” “How am I doing?” “What can I do the make X go smoother?” “Where do I need help?” Although it worked VERY poorly at said job, I like the concept. Switching gears, One of my favorite blogs to follow is Neon Fresh . Girl is HILARIOUS. My favorite post she has is her “This Is How I Feel” series. Using that inspiration, I have decided to start doing that here with memes as my “pulse point.” To find some humor in reality. Enjoy:
