This is the New You

March 5, 2019

 

Greetings, Sardines!  You look great! Have you been working out? This week we talk about how we’ve changed over the years.  Aging ain’t all bad. Well, it ain’t all bad all the time, anyway.

 

Chris and Sara talk about the changes they’re proud of and the ones that are inevitable.  Or are they? Make sure to weigh in in our Facebook group! But don’t worry - no scales are involved, just friendly dialog. :)

This is Too Much Information

February 19, 2019

This is Too Much Information

 

How much information is too much information?  Chris and Sara talk about news and how they handle the overwhelming amount of details that we now have at our fingertips thanks to social media and the Interwebs. And, as always, we get a tad off topic - find out how hockey relates to social skills and how goats worked their way into the conversation.

This is Work/Life Balance: Hahahaha

January 22, 2019

It is a total breeze to achieve Work-Life Balance, and in this episode, Chris and Sara will detail…. Pffft…. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA.  Not. Because there aren’t enough hours in the day to do what we need to do, not to mention what we want to do - and then there’s sleep?  And exercise? Sure, we TOTALLY have time to do all of that. Right?... Right?... Hello?

 

Seriously, though, our intrepid co-hosts re-frame the topic and discuss their takes on balancing work, life, et cetera.
