BlogHer kindly sends us #NaBloPoMo masochists a daily blog prompt during the week just in case we are at a loss for ideas. So far, I haven’t used any of theirs. Where my ideas come from I’ll never know. Divine intervention, perhaps. I’m not even half way through the 30 day challenge and I know […]

I was at a party recently, when a handsome young gentleman smiled broadly at me and remarked that it was “nice to see a woman eat and drink.” I must confess, I was holding a slice of pizza in one hand, a Vampire’s Delight (a wickedly delicious vodka concoction) in the other. Looking around the […]

  I seem to be on a holiday-decoration-pillow shopping spree. Seeking comfort and expression wherever I go, I guess. Perhaps, I just need a nap. Posting everyday for a month during #NaBloPoMo will do that to you! Anyway, this pretty much says it all. The best part? It’s sparkly.     Subscribe to Blog Via […]

I picked an interesting month to take on the National Blog Post Month challenge. This happens to be an unusually busy month for me personally, with a lot of commitments weighing heavily on me, and, as usual, not enough sleep.

When burying the hatchet over old wounds, when the opportunity arises to make amends, do we kiss and make up agreeing to disagree? Or rehash all the icky, painful, uncomfortable stuff, leaving the possibility for more damage once the proverbial pot is stirred. If we don’t talk about it, is it ever really resolved? Do […]

When I was a little girl I used to love playing with my dad’s glasses, pretending I was my third grade teacher or a high powered executive. Now that I’m technically “over-the-hill” and everything is just a blur, wearing glasses has become a necessity. Whoever said, “The eyes are the first to go,” wasn’t kidding. […]

Today is Day 4 of #NaBloPoMo. For your enjoyment I present to you the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship Opening. If this doesn’t get you smiling and your heart pumping, I don’t know what will. Before there was Tae Bo, before there was Zumba…there was Jazzercise. This video basically shows what aerobics classes were […]

I thought I would be at least a few weeks into the 30-day writing challenge before I started discussing bras, but it’s Day 3 (it can only go down from here) and for various reasons this is where my mind goes. Apparently, I’m wearing the wrong size bra. And, to my chagrin, have been for […]

November is here and, brace yourself, it’s time to start thinking about buying gifts for the holidays. Here are several books that will delight and inspire. When We Became Three: A Memory Book For The Modern Family by Jill Caryl Weiner. This is the most clever and creative baby journal I have ever seen. Chronicling […]

Sometimes I get this what-the-heck feeling, to throw all caution to the wind, and jump into something completely insane. I was feeling the itch to get back to my blogging roots. That first year of endless delights every time I clicked “publish.” Once you’ve been blogging for a while your blog may not always feel […]
