Jelly Shoes

Firsts. I’m notorious for having a poor memory, but there are some firsts I do remember.  If I remember it, I can recall more of the feeling or environment, I am quite well known for missing the details. Here’s an example, one of my previous posts had a picture of my kids sitting outside a…

Silk Pillow Case

I read and article that women should sleep on their back and always on a silk pillow case.  The silk keeps your hair from tangling and breaking and you sleep on your back so you don’t mush your face into the pillow and cause wrinkles. Yeah, I sleep on my stomach, face full on mashed…

Tough Stains

There have been times in my life when I’ve been told things I didn’t want to hear. We all  have a tendency to go along in our own world, believing what we tell ourselves because it’s easier.  If things are not as we imagine them then we’ll have to change, do something about it.  That…

Favorite T-Shirt

I really like See’s Candy.  I like to go into the store.  It reminds me of Michael’s grandmother and it’s special.  I suppose you can get candy anywhere and pay a lot less or get a larger amount, but I go to See’s.  Every time I pick up candy for Easter or Christmas I get…

Single Strand of Pearls

I’m an only child. There are benefits and drawbacks to being born “the only”.  All the typical stereotypes apply. I have my mother’s undivided attention, the proverbial world revolved around me and yes, I did grow up a touch self absorbed. On the flip side, all the pressure’s on me.  There are no other siblings…

Sensible Shoes

Midlife Crisis. I’m not exactly sure what it looks like, but I don’t want one.  I’m picturing some 50 year old man in a Ferrari. Do women even have midlife crises?  I thought we were too smart for that.  Men, sure they have them.  They get older, some of them start to lose their “abilities”…

Wedding Dress

I’ve been married 18 years as of last weekend.  For some reason this year hit me.  It just seems crazy that I’ve been married to the same man for 18 years.  For a lot of people that seems perfectly normal.  I mean after all you do get married to stay together forever, right?   Apparently…

Patched Knees

I’ve always loved a new year…well, a new anything for that matter.  When I was in school I loved new notebooks or new school clothes.  As I get older I love new cars or a new purse…I really love a new purse.  All opportunities to get rid of the old stains or used pages. New…

Grass Stains

Michael sent me this article Long Road to Adulthood is Growing Even Longer. I’m going to sound so politically incorrect, but “What the Hell is Going On?”  Why do I feel like the people younger than I am, but still in my generation, are losing their freaking minds? Everything is overanalyzed and just down right…
