Moment of Truth Monday

She stood in front of me fumbling through each screen. My silent frustration grew with every failed attempt. I just wanted to sign in, get my labs drawn, and get on with the rest of my day. This slowdown was unwelcome. Though the slowdown of an interruption is typically inconvenient, it’s often fertile learning ground.…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

There are hundreds of things I’d rather do than go to the grocery store. Visit the dentist and cleaning bathrooms are on that long list, and you can be sure I don’t enjoy either of those tasks. If it weren’t such a necessary thing, I’d probably find a way to limit my trips to once…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
