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…

See Through Blouse

Yesterday was my first time wearing pasties. For many women that are approaching 39 again this is the year for the baseline mammogram.  I’d heard horror stories from “it feels like they’re running  your boob over with a tire” to “the platform is as cold as concrete.” While this is usually a private thing and…

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”…

Stains

Came home and got ready for dinner and presents.  Tradition in our house, when it’s your birthday Dad makes your favorite meal. Cotter is not…

Casual Friday

It is Friday. When I was younger I never understood older people saying, “Thank God it’s Friday.” That sounded so defeatist to me. If you hate your job so much that you are just living for Friday then you need to change it up.  These people are stuck in a rut.  I will never, ever be in…

New Shoes

Yesterday I turned 36 years old. Thirty-six. Don’t get me wrong, I am not one of those “Oh, my God where did the time go!” types. I know where the time went and I have been present for all of it, but I am getting older. I got a really early start on life. I…
