Bottom Drawer

Well, I’m 40, have been for almost 7 months now.  It’s official and I’m really good with it. A few weeks before the big day, I informed Michael that I just didn’t want to do it. I had chosen not to turn 40…just no.  As if I had a choice. What kind of psychotic control…

Well Worn Jeans

Last week I went to see Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy. The movie, by the way, was interesting. Very period with a cool pace and if Gary Oldman doesn’t win an Oscar it’s a real shame, but that’s not the point of this post. The entire theatre, at 3:20 when I took my seat, was filled…

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…

Patience is something I do not have… I am not a patient person and there has been some fallout. I am not a good cook. I cook everything on high and I rush putting the meal together because I do not have patience. My children look at me sometimes like I am a raving lunatic…

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…
