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…

Hand Wash

Andrew sends me a text today that he saw a piece on The Today Show talking about how cursive handwriting is moving out of schools. He asked me what I thought. It’s safe to say I sort of lost my mind all over him.  He’s used to it.  I was texting with a fervor that…

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”…

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…
